    This is the best advice I’ve received on my tennis game in quite some time. It makes so much sense I have to wonder why I didn’t think of it before, considering my baseball background and how I use the fundamentals of pitching to teach kids how to serve. This takes that approach one step further and I just didn’t see it until now. Great video and lesson, Jorge. Thank you!

    This resonates with me. Too many times I’ve been frustrated by ‘their’ groove. Since I am to an extent, the author of setting them in the groove, I’ll change the script.
