So, in an attempt to take a serious look at "footwork" drills and what not, I figure I call on the resident expert to a serious discussion. No name calling; no bringing up previous altercations. Serious discussion. I expect to get a derisive response so don't worry about hurting my feelings. but if you're serious, we can proceed..... let me know...waiting with bated breath (or is it baited breath?) Background about me: I played 2nd singles varsity for a Division A high school in ny. i learned tennis from a couple of pages of tennis magazine from years ago (mostly grips), and a couple of sampras matches. before i stepped on the court, i spent an entire summer hitting against the wall.
