“Repetitions will produce the stroke, your job during the repetitions, is to get a feel for the stroke by adjusting after every swing.”
Here are two examples for you, if you are taking lessons now, stop focusing on techniques and mechanics and re-direct that energy for getting a better FEEL for the stroke.
I have told you time and time again, tennis is a feel game, nothing more and repetitions develop the mechanics.
Coaches aren’t using this modern way of teaching the game and as a result, students have a hard time learning it.
So, let me repeat this again to you.
For faster stroke production, start with the image, then work the repetitions to death, until you get a feel for the shot, the reps will produce the mechanics, so take it easy and concentrate on perfecting your feel for the stroke.
Then move on the the next one.
Oh yeah. never get frustrated when learning a stroke, when frustrations sets in, take a break, get a drink and relax.
After you clear your head, start back in on the reps.
By doing this, you will actually discover the stroke faster.
Second example, if you are an advance players, throw everything your coach taught you out the door and start working on getting a better feel for what style of play best suits your game.
In practice, work on different patterns of play,the goal is to find out which ones feel better for you during points, also play more points in practice.
You should be working on strokes that can help you improve your matchplay, go about this, one stroke at a time, until your own it.
And don’t forget to focus on improving your mental game every practice.
The strokes will take care of themselves, as your feel improves, so will your game.
Time for me to go teach,but I hope we are clear on this issue!Tweet
