    "I feel anxiety when it’s my turn to serve.  When the yips come on...it’s not just that I am double faulting...it is How I am double faulting.  I literally have no “feel” or control.  There is also a significant drop in what power.  In some cases, my serve is literally bouncing to the net which seems impossible...but is my new norm with the yips. I have no power, feel, or control is the best way I can explain it. What’s going on?"

I have learned so much about my mental game in tennis in this podcast, thank you!

On The Go

Great fundamentals for on the go advice! Lets hear some more!

BBQ Maniac ,

Good

Good tidbits of advice. Image training has worked a lot for me (hope Patrick does a segment on it). Example: if I watch the 2001 Goran/Rafter final, and imagine that I'm Goran (with that determined serve) during a tourney, I ace A LOT. If not, I choke. It works.
Good Podcast but wish the advertising would be toned down.
