Yikes! The Pickleball Yips?!?

I'm honest, maybe too honest about my pickleball skills and lack thereof. However one shot I could count on was my serve. I heard "good shot" on my serve fairly often. Usually when the opponent was looking at the ball to see if it cracked. The only possible explanation for him/her missing my serve.

I've told hundreds of beginners, "just get the ball in the box...nothing fancy...just get the ball in the box". A skill that now completely eludes me.

My beautiful, almost spiritual, chi pickleball serve has vanished. Poof! Gone!

Yikes! Is there such a thing as The Pickleball Yips?!?
