How many times a year and for how long does your game fall apart, I mean completely lose it? It happens to mean ever three to for months and lasts between three and six sessions (practice/playing). Late last week I began losing my forehand, started recovering it then lost my serve, and then lost it all, completely. I looked like a beginner. At the end of the session today my serve and forehand seemed to be sloowly creeping back in. My question: WHY does this happen? Any neuroscientists or sports psychologists out there?
