Before each point I mentally rehearse my next stoke. At one point today, the mental picture of my forehand came together as one fluid event. I was not thinking twist, bend, step, hit through and up and catch the racket. I was mentally experiencing a fluid windup and swing that felt comfortable and strong.
Practice and Competition Report: hit with Michelle for an hour and a half.
Solutions Analysis: looking for solution to elbow pain. Possible solution: I have lost forearm strength because I have not been doing my forearm strength exercises. I’ll start doing the exercises every day for two weeks and four times a week after that.
Success Analysis: we had some very good rallies. We were able to consistently hit forehands and backhands deep into the court.
