Ok well to sum up:
I play tennis about twice a week, ive played for a few years but only really started to try and take it more seriously or whatever for a year or so. The thing is i've never really been a confident person or anything and it's never really been that much of a problem.
However these past few weeks its really been affecting my tennis. Whenever I miss just one shot in a lesson/squad i get really down on myself because of it...and obviously my game just goes downhill from that point on, and even when i try to start playing better it still gets worse.
I'm the first to admit that i'm not a very good player, my shots tend to be inconsistent (mainly due to the fact i hit quite flat etc) and i've only recently started to get success with my serve using a chopper grip (my old coach taught me to serve with forehand grip
). So yeah...i don't know what to do - how can i get my confidence up with my tennis and in general??
Also I usually play much better in my lessons than i do in the squad and i'm starting to realise that i feel more rushed or something in my squad and i can't work out why??? Any ideas???
Sorry for the essay, i really am - just i'm feeling really down about it at the moment and thought i'd just see if i could get a nudge in the right direction. Many thanks in advance
