I know that you can't remember it all, but when I do something 60% of the time for instance, is it time to work on adding something else? I can think of a few skills like instant racquet takeback, setting feet, wrist laid back, hips/knees bent (my worst one of them all probably since it takes the most work) to name a few. I do each of these most of the time but sometimes one or the other gets away from me causing a particular stroke to miss. And in a 2 hour drill session led by a coach (where we play with a wide assortment of partner levels, mostly below me), do I just focus on one the whole time? Thanks for the suggestion!
