when i started playing tennis, i didnīt have the advantage of good coaches in my area.
so i actively looked for role models, so i could copy their strokes, what they did tactically, how they moved on court,...
the thing is, sometimes you see somebody hitting a stroke and it feels right. it feels like something you yourself would want to play. thatīs the perfect one to emulate.
to you prefer Federers serve or Nadals? Ferrers backhand or Gascquets?
the one you prefer is usually the better one to emulate.
