Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Zuki in Jamaica.

I spent some time today with Zuki, the local tennis pro at Sandals, Montego Bay. Zuki used to play on the pro tour and has been the resident pro for seven years. I asked Zuki what he felt were the top keys to peak performance as a tennis pro at Sandals. Here’s what he had to say…

1. Patience
2. Be a motivator
3. Creativity

If you are any type of teacher, follow these three principles and you will stand out from the crowd.

Tomorrow’s message from NJ…

Thanks for reading.

    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.
