Have you ever struggled with your service game to the point you lose all feel and control?

In this week's tennis psychology podcast, mental game of tennis expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn answers a question from Ryan.

Here's what Ryan had to say about his game:

"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?"
