I've seen alot of disagreement over the question.. Should we look to the pro's for what techniques to teach. I think most understand that teachers should strive to find "commonalities" of pro technique and teach them. Still, I see alot of statements like "that is for the pros and there game is different" out there. I think it's often forgotten that todays pros were juniors not to long ago and the chances of them changing their strokes, tendencies and habits because they decided to take a chance at making some cash is unlikely (this is my nice way of putting it). In summary I look to the tour for the answers and that strategy has been paying off for me for a long time. Without studying pro tennis and copying it, I wouldn't have been able to make the rapid improvements in my own tennis when I started at the "late" age of 15. nor the rapid improvements of my students. I'd like to see EVERYONE chime in on this one, all of you out there have something valuable to say so say it.
