I took a lesson while traveling to Washington, D.C. this past weekend. Even though I wanted to work on my slice backhand, the pro wanted to see what my groundstrokes looked like overall and I’m glad he did.

He noticed a little flaw in my forehand when I was pulled out wide. He said that I was pulling off the shot and trying to recover BEFORE I had finished the stroke. He said this was contributing to my inconsistency on wide forehands.

We worked on that for about a half hour and by concentrating on staying with the shot until it was finished, I made marked improvement.

Now I just have to concentrate on this during practice until it becomes a habit.
