Very short, crappy video though (some ppl just lack those important decent video shooting skills...).
I was fortunate enough to have a 1hr hitting session with my country's best player (carreer high 799 singles, 261 dobles in 2018) and it was just awesome, it felt like I played for 2 hours or more when we were finished.
Their consistency (open level players) is just amazing, so this makes the hitting session to be very intense. I mean, I can handle the pace, but every rally is very demanding, very fast paced, heavy balls and longer than I might be used to.
All of this made me have to work extra hard: move my legs much more, bounce in-between strokes and be faster on my feet. Engage my legs much more and try and use my whole body (its very common to get lazy and just "arm" the ball at times).
I focused on proper takeback and getting the ball in front all of the time, loose grip and let racquet head lag AND release.
When he worked on his volleys he asked me to not let the ball bounce two times, to step closer to the baseline (was getting lazy steppin back and was hitting a lot of balls after the 2nd bounce). This was HIGH INTENSITY hitting! Had to stay low and turn my whole body while hitting. We did this for maybe 5-8 mins and my legs were killing me afterwards!
But I did grind it for thw whole hour, its not like I have this opportunity every other day so I really made an effort. We had 10 mins to go for thwe hour and I def felt we were way beyond the hour!
I've a couple other vids unfortunately they arw very POOR in quality. We're supposed to hit again in the next couple of weeks so I,ll try and get morw footage.
EDIT: Here's a 2nd longer vid.
