hello

I played tennis about 2 years and recently I got kwew how many sources are there in technic... very very difficult sport..

what is the most priority one as below?

1. focusing the ball to make a pin or flat
2. loading the leg and pulling the un-dominant arm to make a power
3. focusing to the opponents position and placement of my ball

and so on..

So many things to hit the ball in tennis..ㅠㅠ

#1 by far... is focusing on "seeing" the ball make contact with your strings (or at least the yellow blur)....
but they are all important... but #1 is the thing i often find myself screwing up, especially in the heat of battle, or the fatigue of practice...

Most important is to have passion, to love playing, to dedicate urself, go out almost every day, play, practice, drill, and love doing it every single time, and have the excitement that u cant wait till next time you play 1 hour after you finish playing.

If I were relatively new to the sport, I'd ignore #3 [opponent position] and focus on playing high % shots. Read up on "Wardlaw's Directionals".

I think it is to watch the ball. I remember Vic Braden saying something about where your opponent is, and what is facial expression is, doesn't matter much if the ball is bouncing in your own court.

Make 'em earn the point. Try not to give it away.

It depends on your age, strengths, weaknesses, goals, etc.

For example if you are a young player with a lot of time to practice in the future, I would suggest you work on eventually developing high level serves, groundstrokes, volleys, etc.
You may sacrifice winning in the near term, but eventually you will wind up being a better player in the long term if you practice a lot and play enough tournaments.

However if you are a middle-aged man who can only play a few hours per week, then I would recommend that you work on getting the balls into play to maximize your winning percentage.
I know of a couple 55 yo who only played for 5 years and they can win B level doubles tournaments (4.0), because they can get almost everything back in play and lob like a machine.

Amazing post man.

The priority in your game really depends on your stage of development. But in general, I would favour consistency over power. In order to build fundamentals you need consistency first. If you try to overstep that and go for power, it doesn't really build your game, and only causes frustration.
