PRINCIPLES OF THE EFFICIENT MOVEMENT and PERFORMANCE

For a player to move the body segments efficiently, there should be optimal combination of the stability and mobility through lowering the center of gravity created by loading the major muscle groups of the lower extremities.

Upper body force creation depends of the elastic capabilities of the muscles of the trunk. The reason the players create a larger upper trunk rotation beyond the hips is to pre stretch the trunk rotator muscles and create a powerful separation angle

Self focused method to enhance the cognitive adaptations during the training and match situations

Self focused training approach is encouraging athletes to be completely aware of the demands of the situations to achieve a certain goal. They need to have an understand of their own capabilities which are on their disposal to overcome the task problem and achieve the goal of the practice task. Our athletes should be equipped with the abilities to make decisions independently of the coach having not just knowledge but to reflect on the experience in solving or decision making process in order to reconstruct the knowledge in situations when needed

Tennis Training METHODOLOGY

My METHODOLOGY of the training development includes working with athletes as a holistic process, as a coach being a mentor equipping them with tools to take control over the situation at the times of the challenges, to build resilience at the times when feeling of giving up and to understand the importance of overcoming the limits that usually athletes establish by themselves

Perceptual-Cognitive Development through Tennis practice

At the highest level of the game of tennis due to the extreme time constraints, the players do not have time to think through the options and generate the potential moves but only one, the right one. The players are restricted to recognize only the relevant action information based on which they should adapt their option generation strategy so they could as fast as possible come up with the adequate reaction.
