    Crosscourt forehand rallies are overrated

    When I used to do group tennis classes as a kid, the coaches would make us do a lot of crosscourt forehand drills. They said it was the most important skill. Why, Coach Jay? Why, Coach Todd? Why, Coach Magnus? Why? In a match, you never really wanna be hitting to your opponent’s strength...
