Gotta Want It
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CL8SbYhuhOA



TW's Spencer Boller (AKA Spenie the Blade) and Chris Edwards (AKA the Vlogman) have gotta want it as they get ready for an upcoming tournament in our latest video segment. Check in Tuesdays and Thursdays for new episodes showing their doubles training for the upcoming Vince Dente Memorial Day Weekend tournament at the Avila Bay Athletic Club & Spa. Please feel free to chime in if you know of some killer doubles drills you think the guys should try. Hope you enjoy episode one.

Excellent segment guys! Really good. Few comments:

1. The 1st drill (Bryans) I've done with a slight variation where both players basically go around the net post until both players end up where their opponent started. Then you go back the same way you came to exercise the other wing. Really requires some great touch when you get aligned with the net.

2. Cross court drill we do where both players try to approach. Play to 11 and switch server.

3. That PB10mid is a dream frame for an all court player. You should be spanking your opponents with it.

4. Chris- Really like the new Asics. When are they expected to be released?

5. Good luck! Go kick some butt!

*Waits for TW rating police to arrive and inform us that these guys would "get crushed by 3.5s in SoCal"*

drakulie 05-05-2010 06:57 AM

What kind of tournament is this? If it has Senior Age Group divisions I would play in it even though I'm fat and lame. Avila's a really nice place and ABAC's a really nice club.

Yes. I thought that they were pretty good, but not 5.0 players...

I like the sound of that modified Bryan Brothers drill. We will give that a try for sure.

Thanks for the tips.

Everyone's level looks lower on camera.

BobFL 05-05-2010 04:55 PM

I like the vid! :) Just one friendly advice for Spencer - concentrate on your backhand return!

Good luck!

what do you mean?

Tyrus 05-05-2010 05:04 PM

Very nice, will work on these w/ my partner when we start competing this summer.

Wondering, are there any good poach drills you can do w/ just 2 people?

Maybe a serve or feed DTL from the service line and have the returner hit cross court and the server has to poach at it.

would be my best guess.
