Hi Alois and Jeff, i was wondering how can i get less angry and more consistent on my strokes?. Because when i lose a lot of balls or make a lot of errors i get angry and lose consistency. Especially my forehand topspin. And another question is when should i hit the ball on my topspin stroke ? like i know i can hit when it's falling or bouncing high or when its bounced high. But like when the ball is coming long at what moment should i hit it?

Thanks for your answer! Oh and im very happy with my robot

Hi George,

I am glad that you are enjoying your robot.

When you are playing, try to understand that making mistakes are the best thing for your learning.  You are exploring the possibilities.  If you never made a mistake you would also never improve because you don't know how far you can push things.

Try to focus on remaining calm and using your practice time to learn.

If the ball is coming long, it is more a matter of you getting yourself into position to hit the ball correctly.  It doesn't matter where it is your position is the important thing.  Move your feet and body into position so that you are balanced to hit the ball.
