One of the most common reasons for poor consistency of your tennis strokes is something you may not have considered at all. It’s how you AIM your shots.
In my discussions with many players I realised that they are not aiming the shots the way I am.
And I know that the reason why my shots are consistent and my tennis technique is clean is because I AIM my shots in a very specific way – and that’s what I want to explain to you today.
While the mental image in my mind is just of one trajectory, I can break that down into 3 different concepts:
– I have a “lane” in my mind which leads from my contact point towards the target
– I visualize spinning the ball exactly in a horizontal axis
– I AIM into a window above the net
It is the “window” part that I feel is the most important part of AIMING the shots in the right way and yet almost none of my clients ever says that they are aware of the height of their shots when they attempt them.
