Need help, forehand and mental troubles.
Okey, hey again!
Today i played first round in a competition in Sweden and i play'd against a guy that i won over last year. I did win this time too, but it was tough and the annoying thing is that i'm 20 times better then him.
Anyways to the problem, we played on plexipave and the final score was 1-6 6-2 6-1. During the first, second and half of the last one i couldn't hit ONE SINGLE FOREHAND that was good! It's a wierd feeling that i get, it's like my right arm turns into spaghetti (lol) and it feels like the pressure of the rack is 33 pound and it's so annoying, the balls either goes into the net or out!
I know the problem, it's all in the head, but it's impossible to get it out and i have no idea how to do it:(.
My backhand goes fine and i have no trouble to go on the ball and hit it, but on forehand my arm locks itself and i do just get over topspin and the ball goes down the net. I use alot of topspin on my forehand and i guess that's why i have to go on the ball for every hit and not choke.
Later i play'd double on clay and i probably did my best match i have ever play'd, i don't know how i did but in that match i didn't have the feeling and i could hit every ball really well. (Had alot more self belive)
Please help me, anyone give me some tips how to avoid those moments, or prevent them from comming. I really want to develop my game!
I got second round tomorrow and i hope someone could give me some good advice for tomorrow:D.
Thanks! / Erik
