I've been playing tennis seriously and consistently for 2-3 years, I'm quite happy with how I've improved but now it doesn't matter how hard I try I can't seem to progress anymore and have hit some sort of talent wall, I seem to be making always the same mistakes, I play 2-4 times every week for 2-3 hours each time.
I've decided then to have as much coaching as possible, at least once a week and am confident this will unlock the door to the next level of skill!! I'm just curious if other people have felt like they've learnt as much as they can and then think about coaching? I take it coaching is the way forward if you hit a talent wall?
I do watch a lot of tennis vid lessons on youtube but am sure some people can appreciate that doesn't always work and isn't the same as an actual person telling you what to do.
if you were playing real good you would know what you are missing to improve. Fitness is not only about getting tired or not, its essential to make you arrive on the ball in the right spot (movement) and hit it with all the power/direction you want. Then on the next point, the same. Fitness makes you bring your A game anytime you want.
Coaching is good in the beginning to make you learn all without vicious
. Maybe you cant progress because you are using a wrong grip on the serve, or a mad movement when volleying/hitting a topspin forehand. Ever imagined?
Now your coach will prolly watch you and then what you are doing wrong and you will have a hard time perhaps to correct (if thats the case) but I agrre with you, take some coaching for at least 6 months and see if you can improve.
