T.M.I. in Tennis

TMI -What is it? Too Much Information!
 
The game of tennis is in a new revolution of information. Phone cameras, drones, Internet, etc. have all had dynamic influences on the game. It can be overwhelming. What to do?
 
Take it easy and go slow. Work on one area of your game at a time. Take a lesson or watch a video. Do hundreds of "dry" or practice swings before you go to the court. You learn by repetition. You are not going to master it immediately. Set a goal.
 
Now you have an opportunity to mimic or copy your favorite pro's shots. If you start feeling overwhelmed, just stop competing for a short time or don't expect to win if you continue playing.
 
Many physical problems that older tennis players have can be stopped by these new methods.
 
For example: You almost never hear about a young player having tennis elbow! Why? Major grip changes and shortening of the strokes. All brought about by the new technology approaches. Go see a pro that makes you play like a kid. You will have great fun meeting the challenge.
 
Do not let TMI stop you from your potential. Slow down and be patient. Do your homework (your "dry swings"). Gradually, incorporate your new shots into your game plan. It will be a lot of fun when you accomplish this. I have many of my older students with strokes that look like the juniors. What fun!
 
Good luck on the courts!
