look at film of the top players using slow motion. they have reached the top because they have sound fundamentals. not just great strokes but great footwork, balance, conditioning,etc. For a junior player wanting to really improve I always recommend getting a GOOD coach. There are lots of coaches out there so make sure you get the best coach you can. ask the best players about their coaches.it's fun for a junior player to emulate a top pro but to be a winner you must find your own game that will work for you under the pressure of match play.A GOOD coach will help you do this. Good luck!
