Here are a few factors that make up a good tennis player that you should refer to when planning to step on the next professional tennis path. If you are not really passionate, you cannot go far in any area of life, and tennis is no exception. This is the most important factor, so I leave it first.
An environment full of good people, continuous practice and learning will help you quickly join the top players of the world. At the French and German academies that I’ve just attended, there are always top 30 ATP players who regularly practice with amateurs.
As a result, you always have a serious practice example in front of you, and it’s no wonder the players who come there learn very quickly. If you keep hitting and winning there is no reward for the effort, you will hardly improve when playing tennis. The key to becoming a good player is discipline and concentration when concentrating and playing.
At prestigious institutions, they have excellent spiritual encouragement, and also severe disciplinary measures. You may be dismissed from school if you do not show the discipline of the practice.
If the first three factors favor the mental factor, then from the 4th to 7th factor are the technical factors of using the racquet and the ball. The interesting thing when I hear them explain how to hold the racquets. Oh well, most of us do not talk about these extremely important elements.
Yet this is the main reason why most players keep moving up to a certain extent, stopping, and eventually having to re-practice. That’s how to grip after more than a decade of practicing tennis!
Tennis differs from Golf in that you do not have time to correct your posture, position and watch the weather. The ball comes so fast and can be in all directions. That’s making you have extremely flexible grip and practice your ability to handle different grip for each ball.
Tennis is a competition of movement. Even if you hit the ball with the right technique, but you cannot run to the ball, everything is in vain.
