Much respect to you Kevin for experimenting with this new format. And THANK YOU! I hope the other TTD’ers get as much value as I did from it! What you said really resonated for me. I’ve been so focused on my own tennis improvement. In my matches I’m mostly watching myself and analyzing what I’m doing well or poorly. The last match I played I was missing easy overheads and volleys, and I focused on it, and it just kept happening again and again. I even made a plan during the match to practice those shots more on the practice court. But I couldn’t tell you what shots my opponent was doing well or poorly to the same degree. I’m always thinking about what I want to do in my points, and when it goes south I’m taking all the responsibility. To use your metaphor, I’m touching the hot stove over and over, thinking the problem is with my hand not that the stove is burning hot. Gameplan for my next match- I’m going to try and log every point I see happen on the other side of the net like a input/output function. I.e. deep ball, high to the backhand -> weak backhand slice short cross court. flat, deep penetrating shot down the line -> defensive lob. I might even use pen and paper to write it down. Question: In the spirit of focusing more on the other side of the court, what can you tell us about what you’re observing in your opponent at the start of the point. Specifically, when you’re returning.. are you looking for early clues as to where they will serve, what do you look for as tells? And when you’re serving, what observations across the net are you making that will influence what you do with your serve? Anything you might see that would scream kick serve vs slice, etc.
