Feel the burn

Goofing around when practicing tennis would be like going to the gym and lifting "some" weights. No one that really wants to get in better shape believes it would happen without a plan, charting progress, and pushing past failure...

So, if you are serious about improving your tennis game, create a practice plan, keep track of progress and be willing to push yourself to failure and beyond.

When you fail you will learn from the experience and grow because of it.

Volleys: Eliminate miss hits!

Stopping your feet before contact causes miss hits!

When your feet stop it decreases your ability to track the tennis ball (causing miss hits).

So, keep your feet moving!

Volleys: More solid contacts, faster reactions and quicker reflexes

Lighten up on your grip. The wrist/grip instinctively locks just before contact so you do not need to thnk about it.
