As spin is more and more introduced into the game of tennis, there was a lot of confusion how to create a spin in a
Two crucial elements are analyzed in this blog:
1. Positioning to the ball (How to successfully position the body stepping away from the ball)
2. Efficient stroke and recovery (How to successfully create enough power so the trajectory of the ball is deep and controlling while keeping the balance and recovery potential)
There are many directions in which the player moves during his performance. By all tennis game analysis, lateral movement (side to side) is around 70% of the whole court coverage, therefore it’s a crucial for the optimal result to control the body (keep the dynamic balance) while moving laterally.
Loading consists of the engagement of the major muscle groups to create the most efficient kinetic chain movement while keeping the dynamic balance. What does this mean?
I was asked so many times by my players, what comes after the pivotal step? My preference is a cross step. Without the pivot step and the cross step, a player would have to rely on the side step, which is comparing to these two much more inefficient and slower
Leg drive initiate the kinetic chain, the flow of energy from the ground up to the wrist. Leg drive is used for the player to
