You're down love-40 and your world is coming apart. Not to worry. Try to get temporary amnesia ... in other words, forget about it.

You only need three points to pull even and then two more to win the game.

Play one point at a time, regular points, no going for intentional aces or winners. Just play regular and get your first serve in.

You will be surprised what you can do if you just forget the score and play each point one at a time.
