    Has anyone ever analyzed how poor or unefficient technique has been a hinderance to their endurance?

    Any success stories about improving technique (becoming more efficient) which led to better endurance ie not getting tired as quickly.

    I suspect I'm using way to much energy in an inefficient manner and it tiring me out, like a boxer throwing too many lame punches....

    I think Federer must have perfect technique as he never seems to get tired. He even said in his match against Ferrer of all people- "I wasn't tired and I can tell he was".

    Of course when your techniques are better, you swing with more relaxed arms and body, which leads to better endurance

    I think ATP pros get tired not so much from hitting but from running. if you make your opponent run around and control the middle of the court (I learned that from an interview with boris becker, he stresses that point a lot) he will get more tired.

    good technique allows for better placement, angles and the ability to change directions so that can help you saving energy and making the opponent run more.
