Form The Desk Of Lee (Alligator) James:I believe the essence of tennis is proper biomechanics in each stroke. But first, I'll give you a brief explanation about what's really going on behind the scenes.
To the untrained eye, every top player appears to strike the ball differently. But there are certain techniques in the strokes of each and every expert player. The best players use precise footwork to create a chain reaction: it begins with their feet and spirals through their core section ending in a snap of the wrist through contact. Gone are the days of stepping into the ball and keeping a straight arm throughout the shot.
It takes a lot of hard work to become a top player. But, hard work without proper biomechanics can only take you so far since it's not the amount of time on court everyday, it's how productively you use that time. Let me show you how to incorporate strategies into your game depending on the style of your opponent. I want to fine tune your game to reach your ultimate potential.
