    Tell somebody "You are Rafael Nadal" or "Roger Federer". Then tell them they have to run as hard as they can and hit as hard as they can.

    No, it doesn't work that way you have to pay someone large sums of money to tell you.

    Nah, just record your voice on your iphone shouting out:

    "Hey! [insert name here]. You. Are. Awesome! Keep playing that way. Oh. My. God. Is that Federer move?!! C'mon do it, Oh! Nadal!!!! do it, do it!. Go go go go go go go go go go Gangnam Style!!"

    ..And play it loud enough for everyone to hear on court while you play!

    Combine this with Kiteboard's list of "quick" fixes and you'll be top of the tour in no time :D

    Yes, however you will need to avoid using polyester strings because they are only for the elite, and mid sized rackets are also out of the question. You will need to polarize your racket...as well as your sunglasses, and you will need to weigh them to 0.021 grams of each other, otherwise your game will be off. If you are not using a pro stock frame you will also get nowhere. Silicone is the magic ingredient to achieving greatness.

    Fitness, footwork, stamina, shot selection, tactics, concentration and long hours on court spent practicing not required.
