Coach Rick Macci reveals several myths which have caused players to make careless mistakes. Take a look at the myths and their debunked replacements:
Getting your racquet back early
Instead: Get your shoulders back early and hold the backswing.
Keeping your feet on the ground when hitting a groundstroke
Instead: Load and explode with your footwork.
Rolling your hand over the ball to hit topspin
Instead: Keep racquet vertical and hit low to high
Hitting down on your serve
Instead: Hit up and out with a continental grip
Keeping wrist firm on every shot
Instead: Reduce the grip pressure on the groundstroke
Macci reminds everyone that “With all these myths, there’s not a wrong way or a right way, there’s a better way."
