Talk Tennis Guru
On the flip side, as a pro you have to give them something to take home from their first lesson. Something that will help them tomorrow.You know what is interesting to me about adults who take lessons?
I have had people admire something about my game, ask me who my pro is, take a lesson, and then say that they didn't get much out of it because their [fill in name of shot they struggle with] didn't improve.
How bizarre. No one goes to a piano teacher, takes one lesson, and then quits the following week because they didn't master Chopin.
Learning tennis is a long road, and coming to lessons with a backpack full of bad habits that need fixing makes it take that much longer. That people expect a pro to fix what ails them in one hour is astonishing to me.
