    Great video. I have discovered in y teaching and coaching experiences that high school boys have an unbelievable amount of stored energy just waiting to erupt. Volcanoes don’t come close to this level of energy. Your method of identifying and harnessing that energy to a productive level is something I will try when the high school tennis season opens next month. (Yes, I realize that next month is January, but this is Alabama and as a principal once told me when I enquired about adjusting the seasons to a more amenable schedule “If it ain’t football, {EXPLETIVE DELETED}”. He and I are both retired so I feel a certain amount of safety in paraphrasing his comments.

    When is a good time to play “sabotage/ugly” speed?

      Hi Kelly, I generally instruct my players to go to sabotage when they are behind or feel like they’re in a match they cannot win. I prefer that their 1st plan be to play their favorite way and only go to sabotage if that’s not working

    I really like the “test”. I have many girls who like to hit hard, but cannot make t
    3 in a row. This is a good visual for them! Thanks Jorge!!!
