    How do you stop pulling off of heavy topspin shots without much pace?

    I did that and beat him that way. What concerned me was making so many unforced errors off these no pace shots.

    How do you stop pulling off of heavy topspin shots without much pace?

    I was playing with someone that hits a flatter ball and hitting great. Then I started playing this guy that doesn't hit very hard, but he hits with a ton of topspin with very little on it. His shots were deep, but not moonballs. For some reason I started out strong but then started pulling off...

    How should I workout for recovery after tough points?

    Haven't been in a real match situation yet, but in practicing it seems to have helped. I will be playing more coming up so I'll let you know!

    Why do people scream during pro matches as players fun for drop shots or hit overheads?

    In all the years I've been playing and watching tennis at parks and clubs I've never seen anyone scream like they just witnessed a murder as someone runs for a drop shot or moves back to hit a lob. How come when I watch pro matches on TV or go live events people in the crowd will start screaming...

    How should I workout for recovery after tough points?

    I don't really do any strength training for my legs since I'm playing tennis 3+ times a week. Guess I could incorporate that as well. There is a workout with legs and back (dumbells and pullups) that I might try again

    How should I workout for recovery after tough points?

    That might be it. He says he coached someone who was in good shape but would be exhausted since she didn't breathe during the point.

    How should I workout for recovery after tough points?

    That looks like what I need. Especially with changing direction after sprinting This morning I did a HIIT workout and it gave me the same feeling I get after one of those points. Out of breath and also feeling a bit dizzy. So I guess that's good training for tennis. What I did was like 20...

    How should I workout for recovery after tough points?

    I can play hitting cross court or "regular" 2 or 3 shot rallies for a while. What gets me are the long points where I'm sprinting up for a drop shot and then running back for a lob or hitting a shot on the full stretch and then racing to cover a few more shots. I'm perfectly fine finishing those...

    Post your favourite video game soundtracks

    I played the original growing up, then Zelda 2, some of the SNES one and then the N64 ones (which I didn't like that much) and am currently playing BOTW on the Nintendo Switch. If you think of the one you couldn't solve let me know

    How can I improve my lob ROS for doubles?

    By "swing" I just meant the technique for hitting it. I am doing more of a volley motion off these fast serves but rarely hit a good lob. It's just frustrating to see the opposing net player so close and not be able to lob him. If the serve is slow enough I can definitely attack it or lob off...

    How can I improve my lob ROS for doubles?

    Lately I've noticed more server's partners crowding the net. This is especially true when the server has a big serve. Naturally the way to counter this is with a lob, but my lob off a serve where I'm reaching or struggling to get back isn't very good. A lot of times I'll miss it wide, which I...

    Opinion on Public Park Tennis Courts re: Time limits

    The rule says "Please Limit Play to One Hour When Others Are Waiting." So I would interpret that to mean you can play as long as you want as long as no one is waiting for a court. If someone comes and wants to use the court don't play more than 1 hour.

    Does Anyone Else Find Matches Boring (but not tennis)?

    I feel the same way. For me it's a lot more fun to play games from the baseline or start the point with a feed at a clinic than dealing with serves and returns and all the downtime between points. I put off playing sets and matches for years since I didn't enjoy it. I still don't like it as much...

    Should your legs still be sore a few days after cramping?

    Would recovery be similar to a workout then? Should I consider a protein bar or muscle milk or something like that? I wanted to play again early next week. I think so. I play in the sun a few times a week and take a Vitamin D pill. I sweat a tremendous amount and have had problems with cramps...

    Should your legs still be sore a few days after cramping?

    My legs cramped after a hard match during the week, but it didn't cramp that bad and went away after 5 minutes or so. The next few days I did yoga, Pilates and used a foam roller and felt fine. The day before I was going to play this weekend I didn't do anything. When I played I was moving...
