hi,

I`ve got a major problem: I`m playing tennis 3 times a week but I don`t know if I should play more to be more successful.

Do you think 3 times per week is enough`?

thanks for your opinions guys...

how long is a piece of string? :confused:

you gotta be more specific

are you playing 3 times a week at low intensity for 45 mintues a session?

are you playing 3 times a week at 2 hours a session at max output?

are you just hitting or are you working specific technique, tactics and matchplay?

hi,

I play 3 times a week for about 1 hour. I do work specific technique but I just don`t know if 3 hours per week is enough. I think it`s a quantity issue...

there is no substitute for hitting a lot of balls

if you can push your sessions out to 1.5 hours see if your improvement goes up equally

look at the countries showing the most success, argentina, spain, belgium (for its population) all clay courts, usually means longer rallies = more balls hit

I play six days a week for 2 hours a day. The saying practice makes perfect is true in tennis.
