    Struggling with tennis - mentally and physically

    If you have changed your technique and you are hitting the ball long, then you need to hit with more spin, or you need to change your racquet/strings/tension or both... If you think you might hit long, this causes you to hold back on your stroke, and you hit more long balls because your not...
