Improvement Is Inevitable
I’ve been tennis coaching for almost 40 years & I’m still learning about this extraordinary game.
The recent Australian Finals between Roger & Andy, Serena & Venus highlighted the amazing athleticism, speed & mental strength that is now required to play at the top table.
I have never coached anyone who has reached that level but I imagine it would be fascinating to observe the development of such a player from young aspiring junior to Grand Slam champ.
I am a club coach & deal in the main with kids & adults who have little or no experience of tennis or indeed any sport. Some players can make great contact at their first attempt. I’ve seen this in children as young as two but the vast majority find hitting a moving ball, challenging, to say the least.
