As I watched the US open this week I started to notice something. When a pro gets a floater and crushes it into the open court, nobody seems to notice. The pro is expected to put it away with authority and generally there is no instant replay.
What I noticed was that there would almost always be multiple instant replays on precision shots. Virtually always you would see instant replay on good passing shots. That tells me the tennis world, even though enamoured with 144 mph serves actually puts more stock in shots that are hit exactly where they are supposed to be hit.
So, I’m going out and practice today the drills I learned from Coach Kyril and Mauro Marcos. Take a look at the video below and you’ll see what I’m doing today.
And keep in mind what coach Mauro Marcos always says, “So what if you have power if the ball goes in the woods?”
