Getting your rhythm back

#2
Played three tournaments; won 2, finalist in the other. Rhythm carried over to the club championships which I won.

Played an athletic moonballer. Rhythm is now ****ed.

How do I regain it?
Have a long, easy hitting session where you just focus on the mechanics of your stroke and forget about where the ball goes. I would think you'd re-establish your rhythm right quick.

The bigger picture is if you played that well to win those tournaments and club championship and then your rhythm was thrown off by one opponent, your technique is not as ingrained as it should be.

I agree. It's more about my forehand's timing and rhythm; everything else is solid. To give more context, the three tournaments I played were 5.0s and I felt like I was playing near open-level and now I'm back to being more solid 5.0.

Continue practicing or playing with the opponent styles you are comfortable with and I assume it is not hard to regain it. Being a 5.0 I think you should know that.

But you may also have to play the uncomfortable playing styles more often if the intent is to not break apart like that again in a tournament. In otherwords, you have a choice here since it is re-creational. Either avoid playing them completely or play them a lot more, or include them in your practice a lot more.
