    Get your friend to feed you shots. Play more games. Play the wall.

    Try practising a shorter swing. Many players use an unnecessarily long swing that causes them to lose timing. Even for a rearcourt stroke such as a forehand clear, the swing should be compact and controlled.

    Several of my juniors have lost their smash and clearing timing over the summer (actually, it started earlier); I'm now coaching them to use a simpler, shorter swing. It seems to be working

    The trouble is that, if you are thinking about power, you will naturally use a big (and often tense) swing. The only way to train against this impulse is to practise in a situation where there is no pressure on you to develop power.
