Hi there Alois,
I have been playing for 15 years or so, and have always had a bit of a problem when I loop, with my head going up/back, moreso on my forehand (BH sometimes too though). I know that it is a bad thing to do but I really struggle to break the habit. As a result I miss the ball quite a bit, and I also think it costs me power. Are there any tips or tricks you can give me to try and break this bad habit please?
One trick that you can use is to imagine you are in a room with a very low ceiling and try to keep your head from hitting the ceiling. You can also get a friend to stand with an object just above your head while hitting your forehand stroke. Something long so that they can stand away from you works well. This gives you direct feedback as to when you are coming up.
Also videoing your stroke and watching what you are doing can give you a better idea of what it looks like.
