So maybe this is the million dollar question but after tonight I felt a need to post a thread on this. I've noticed a trend in the last few years. I take 3 months off in the winter, come back in the spring and play ON FIRE for maybe couple weeks then go back to a really mediocre level with flashes of brilliance which only remind me of what I'm capable of. It just drives me INSANE when I know I can play 10 times better than what happens. Silly errors, shots I would have made in my sleep before are now just inches out. 1-2 double faults then an ace on the 4th serve in the very same game. Wild unexplainable forehands/backhands with **** poor technique and then the next forehand is a scorching winner crosscourt. Volley putaways being botched up badly then half-volley drop shot winner on the next point Stuff like this. Zero consistency or solid play. Wild points, good winners from time to time and REALLY bad errors. My question is, how do you rekindle your FOCUS and find that zone where you're playing up to your potential? How do you recover from bad points in general?
