Practice

Coach Rollie calls it muscle memory. That i still whack the ball like a table tennis player thus the mishits, the short balls, the looping high balls. I stomp, flash my arms in frustration but nothing else can be done except Practice Practice Practice. Coach Rollie is strict but fair. He can sense my frustration in every mistake. And he says, you will be alright. You need to play and hit more. To outgrow the muscle memory. It's like this back pain. It needs more tennis to go away. So Practice Practice Practice.
