Well I sure as heck returned to form today. Have been giving my sore wrist a bit of a rest lately so wasn't sure how I'd get on, but it ended up being one of those days where I couldn't miss.
Sorted out the forehand problem and I was really whipping it and finding great angles. Amazingly my backhand has become so much stronger since I've been relying on it more recently, so the drop of form has been a blessing in disguise. Serve - strong. Volleys - good. Won all the cat and mouse battles at the net.
I'm pumped right now
Thanks for letting me vent in this thread guys haha, has really helped a lot. Hopefully I've left my mug hack days behind me...for now.
