If college and pro coaches for every other sport is videoing and analyzing their practices, why do we not do the same.
I've been videoing my practices and come to the following conclusions:
1) my game is very intericate--meaning i play alot of low percentage shots, always have and probably always will, but to do so, i need to practice. Over the course of 25 years, I have always coached--this is the first year of my life where I'm not spending time on the tennis court, thus, my skills are eroding.
the solution is obvious, increased court time and video analysis.
from that, I notice that I'm not stepping into my shots, bending, and springing. These are big issues in my game, and I'll have to address it. Also, on my forehand, I'm making contact with an open shoulder, extended arm, and quick snap--which makes my contact a bit helter skelter.
the goal over the next few weeks is to focus on using more body and a smoother contact, a more of a push contact as opposed to a pull.
