Do you want to learn how to play tennis faster?
Great, keep reading please.
The first question that I have for you is this,
“How many shadow swings do you do a week now”.
If you aren’t seeing the results on court, then you need to be doing more of them off the court.
Tennis is a motor skill sport.
This is a game of movement and FEEL.
So in practice and in your lessons, make sure that you are working on your shadow swings as much as you can.
The more the better too, the first thing I do with all my students is have them start doing more shadow swings off the court.
You also need to be working on them before practice.
Get in some extra reps at home, you can and should do these reps before you sleep, that way, your subconscious mind will be working on them while you sleep.
Try to watch some videos before you practice the swings, to get a clear image of the stroke in your mind, then stop the video and picture yourself doing the stroke.
Then start doing your shadow swings.
Start off slowly and build up speed for the swing.
Don’t grip the racket so tight either, because this will negate your feel for the stroke.
“Most tennis players at all levels don’t do this enough and as a results, their timing isn’t consistent on their strokes, doing shadow swings will help you to get a better feel for the stroke and then help you to discover it”.
Tennis is a feel game and the faster you can get a feel for a certain stroke by doing shadow swings, the faster you will develop that stroke.
You need to spend 20 to 30 minutes a day, 2 to 4 times a week doing this tennis tip.
One more thing.
Always picture yourself making the perfect shot when you are doing your shadow swings.
Because by doing this, you will speed up the learning process for yourself.
Use a nice loop on your backswing for both sides, the rule is( you are only as good as your loop are with your strokes), so be aware of that fact.
The secret to learning tennis faster is to do more shadow swings, try to do it as much as you can.
In 1 month your whole game should take off on you!
