Jimmy Connors Tennis Tips & Drills

JIMMY CONNORS

It's Labor Day weekend and the U.S. Open is fully underway, and I've learned that tennis what you play if you want to have an incredibly hot girlfriend. I swear tennis has to be the only sport that operates like a high school where gossip is discussed just as much as the sport itself. And it seems like all tennis players are prodigies at the age of 9, so my time fot making the circuit has probably past. Here is Jimmy Connors and Chris Everett to give us a couple tips that could possibly help on our tennis dates:

Why Watching the Tennis Ball is so Important

Watching the tennis ball while playing tennis is a bit of a wrong conception, or perhaps it just a shortcut for saying: look at the tennis ball when you tennis raquet is actually striking the ball. Instead many tennis players only watch the flight of the ball as it comes toward them.

Watching the flight of the ball works fairly well much of the time especially if the tennis ball comes to you in a straight line. It does not work if the ball has topspin, sidespin, underspin, or if the flight of the ball is curving due to the wind or slanting of the court. In addition, it does not work if it hits a crack or a dip or a bit of dirt. So, unless you are playing indoors on a brand new tennis court that has just been cleaned, against a player who only hits clean flat shots, you are going to have problems producting your long powerful strokes.
