    Great. The awareness of this let alone the practice should help with my chip and charge game as well as when you’re forced into moving forward and have to do a controlled push of a low ball, which I frequently over play past the baseline.

    Jorge, you share lots of good easy to understand instruction. A good ex. Is what i got a while back with the split, bounce, hit…saying bounce and hit has really cleared my head as well as my personal promise of hitting through my back had when its the right shot. I play at a 4.5 level, there is a top 4.5 Ive lost too a bunch of time, the last 2 match i only won 4 and 3 games, he beat me down. Well I just beat him for the 1st time using these 2 techniques, i dominated the 1st set tie braker and at 4 all in the 2nd set i lost 1 pt, he said what happen, he was shell shocked! Now I do use WIll Hamiltons FuzzyYellowTennisBall mental training but this was the missing piece of the puzzle! Thank You

    Excellent way to build a more aggrieve charge. Drills helps reduce the hard hit which sometime goes out. Keep up the drills.

    Great approach to the chip and charge technique! It is a great way to take advantage of a weak serve, particularly if sent back to the opponent’s weak hand.
