Visual system is the dominant sensory system and critical for detecting relevant cues in order to effectively produce an appropriate motor response. As such, for successful performance, an athlete, especially in tennis, must identify and attend to relevant visual cues as early as possible
Visual search, peripheral vision, gaze in tennis, anticipation
In tennis, the player transfers the energy from the body to the ball through a tennis racket to generate speed and spin of the ball. The loaded energy is the potential (stored energy) is transferred through the kinetic chain into the moving energy (the energy of movement) of the body segments in the timely manner through the ball into the wanted direction
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
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.
