OK, I'm looking for a little guidance here because I think I'm a freak or something. I played doubles at the club last night. I went right after work, completely cold. It took nearly two sets for me to find a correct stroke. I was sailing balls, netting balls, hiiting left and right, you name it, It was awful. Timing was off Lots of raquet face errors I did get better eventually. After playing I was very upset. I went to the wall to do some stroke work. After 15 minutes, my timing came back, the raquet face errors went away. I startred hitting with someone and was a completely different player. Is it normal to need a long warm up. I have this problem frequently. It seems I need to hit quite a few balls repetetively before I can play reliably. Anyone else have this problem. Once I'm "warmed up" I'm fine. This isn;t a muscular conditioning kind of warm up, it's more timing and programming the correct stroke into memory.
