Have you ever lost all confidence in your serve for no apparent reason? All of a sudden your serve is just flying everywhere except in the service box where you want it to go? You now dread your serve and fear stepping up to the line because you just have no idea what's going to happen.

It is also a strange phenomenon because the serve is the one shot in the game that you have total control of. That may be part of the problem though because for the same reason it's also the shot that you have the most time to think about. And those shots can quickly turn negative and it's all downhill from there.
