Need advice for coaching a youngster...

She's sleeping on that tennis racket instead of being out there training hard and working on that MTM open stance, putting lead tape and silicone in her racket, working on her ISR/ESR, hitting a straight arm forehand and a one handed backhand.

You failed as clearly she no longer cares about tennis, you must missed the opportunity to develop a champion and the best she will do is become miserable 3.0 who waddles on the court, and her greatest claim to fame will be 30k+ posts on TTW.

:-D

congrats. Sadly I see a waiters try in the making and OMG a 2 hander for sure. At that age they ALL need an AP Belt or Perma Wrist trainer!!

And make sure you get diapers she has to constantly pick at. #1 behavior of a champion in my book! Though it could lead to repetitive wrist injuries so care needs to be taken to only go to the well on the big points not all the time:


You can soooo do this Ash

Third pic from the left, bottom row. Hahaha! Too much! Then he gives his fingers a quick sniff.

Get that girl to Sureshs Conscious Shoulder Movement Serve Academy and have here learn the "Bartoli Barage" from Sureshs!

Though I say Taiss is the way to go for her, then send her to Yandell for high speed video!

Congratulations! I am sure you already taught her how to scream on the court.

PS You went as far as picking Slazenger balls too? The only missing thing is the outrageously expensive bowl of strawberries with whipped cream!

Yeah can you imagine what its like after a few sets? I have wondered why Spanish undie technology is so far behind.
Monks, living on the borders of a former pelgrimage route which can still only be accessed on foot, handcraft linen and wool cloth and shape them into underwear, as they always have since 1136. Yes, they are a tad itchy, but each piece can last up to ten years.

Or, Nadal farts often and just gives it a quick check to make sure nothing more than air has left his guts.

Congratulations to you and, especially, your wife.

Training with balloons is good, but they have to be old enough not to put them in their mouths. Right now (well, in a little bit), just get those toys that have shiny balls hanging down and she'll bat at them - learning hand-eye coordination.

That ball is a ball from the 2015 Championships that I used when warming up a player - you can still smell the court 14 grass on it, hoping that smell will inspire her!
