Most coaches here have no concept of a unified approach and will teach the same shot totally different to the next coach. Doesn't help the players, especially if they have one individual coach and a different squad coach for example.
Ash this is very true! and also what i see here on the ground in Barcelona is that the younger players are encourged when they hit a good level is to bypass the junior tournaments and start to learn there trade against men!! Thats why they come straight into the mens game! not years of playing against boys! and are prepared to lose matches to learn their trade! It works very well!!
