I was watching the Tennis Channel last night where David Ferrer was putting a whomping on Andy Murray in the Rome Clay court tournament going on now.
David was the proverbial “Wall”. Nothing got by him. He just kept sending balls back to Murray. By the end of the straight set match Murray looked like a rag doll and Murray is no slouch when it comes to conditioning.
I don’t expect the fatties on this blog to be able to last in the long rallies those two went at last night, but the point I want to make is that David just kept hitting the ball back…..nothing spectacular . . . . just one more ball for Murray to chase down and hit back.
Rallies for you that are only 5 balls long done consistently will most likely have many of your opponents “rag dolling” it in just a couple games.
