    I Never Had a Lesson Like That!

    But seriously, you've been around the block since the 70s and have only worked with 6 D-1 players. That's not very impressive.

    That someone usually only exists in junior development. And usually they are all booked.

    Obstacles to Transitioning to Semiwestern

    I have a tendency to dump my first serve into the net. Then I changed my trophy position to wind my shoulder more. This affected my timing and contact point and had the unintended consequence of fixing my first serve issue. I suggest changing your forehand takeback a little...maybe one that...

    How to stop children using wta forehand

    Golf is not a sport. As much as I hate pickle ball, I rank golf below pickle.
