We asked Elevate Fitness Tennis Professional Chris Galle to share 5 ways you can improve your tennis game TODAY, and here’s what he had to share with us!
“Play your Game”-Listen, you’re not Roger Federer or Serena Williams, so why try shots that only they can do? Construct points that set up your strengths, and you will also feel like a Grand Slam champion.
Reduce your first serve speed by 10%. By getting more first serves in, you will give yourself a better shot of getting the upper hand in rallies. Most players are defensive when returning first serves and are more offensive minded on second serves. Your doubles partner will thank you for not getting them killed on your slow second serve.
Don’t try to hit the line like the pros do on the tour. There is a reason you are a teacher, doctor, lawyer, etc. Do you want Serena doing heart surgery on you? Hit the outside 25% of the court to “teach/dissect” your opponent.
Figure out your opponent’s weakness and punish it. We want you to punish their weakness until your opponent cries, “Uncle.”
Work with a tennis pro to improve your game. Whether it’s private one-on-one coaching and lessons or group lessons or league play, getting involved in coached programming can help you increase your game better than any other single strategy.
