I don't think they, nor the people who raised and trained them were considered "lazy".
I have news for you,,,,, coaches are some of the laziest individuals you could find on a tennis court. They feed balls, talk a lot of doo-doo and do very little "teaching". Aditionally, they need to ensure thier students keep coming back, and the only way for this to occur, is for the student to become "better" quickly. Hence, the instant gratification.

Yes. They are. In the "real world", where the vast majoty of tennis players are in the 3.0 range, they mostly try to hit forehands (their stronger side), and develop tennis elbow because of bad form.
