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."
