Tennis Tip from Coach Kwong

Are you a proactive or reactive player? If you are a reactive player, then you will for sure make it harder for you and your partner to capitalize on the win. As a player, you must have good decision-making skills and be a good trouble-shooter. This enables you to fix things when they are not working right. Without these two key skills, you are just going through the motions, hoping for “the best.” Going on a “hope” only goes so far and typically doesn’t work well in the team’s favor. When playing, knowing your own strengths and weaknesses, along with your partner’s, gives you a competitive edge. Take it one step further and apply tactics with this information. Transition for better court positioning to outperform your opponent rather than outhitting them.
