Are you getting beat on your return of serve by getting aced by slower serves?
In this week's tennis psychology podcast, mental game of tennis expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn answers a question from Tony about getting aced by slower serves and how this is so frustrating.
Here's what Tony had to say about his game:
"I keep getting aced by slower serves which is so irritating. Someone hits a banger and I'll get my racquet on it. someone dinks one over and I'll get it back easily. But when someone hits a medium paced serve into a corner, it beats me clean, I don't even move! Strange because I can get my racquet to slow and even fast balls but medium paced serves catch me off guard. How can I get better with this? What's breaking down mentally?"
Listen to the podcast to hear what Dr. Cohn suggests to return off-paced serves.
