Imagining The Heavier Ball Is Great I have always watched pros on TV and thought, "Wow, they just hit and hit and it always goes in." The other day, I realized what that 'look' is. The ball when watching tennis on TV, to me anyway, always looks heavier than it is. I have always tried to play like they look, and it kinda worked, but not for long. Today, I not only tried to play like they look, but I specifically played as though the ball was heavier than it is. I cannot really explain it any better than that. I am not entirely sure why this works so well. Perhaps it involves focusing harder on where my racket head and the ball are, keeping a steady hand/wrist, and driving through the ball better, but I felt like they look. I was hitting with great depth, control, spin, good pace, and dramatically reduced mis-hits. When you play like that, you don't need a lot of pace. I felt like eveyrthing was going in and I had better control over the ball. It was a pretty incredible feeling.
