Is tennis difficult?

Most players at every level would agree.

Nonsense. It has been made difficult.

I have established some astounding principles that make tennis a much easier sport to perform.

One of those tenets is that human beings can play tennis more efficiently at a simpler level where feel and instinct are enhanced and thought is minimized.

Maximized are the ability to be and stay in present time, leading into perceptions and awareness not considered normal for an individual, such as the slowdown of time.

Although dismissed as too simplistic by critics in the fields of tennis coaching and tennis sports science, the essence of this modus operandi comprises “tennis of the future”, reflecting the performance of top pros and very young children who have not yet been conditioned to “think”.

Human beings, in general, love sports and the feel of conquering non-harmful physical challenges with exertion yet ease. They also want to excel at acquiring knowledge in how to transform a challenge into a win, on how to make a seemingly difficult task into a pleasant accomplishment, a fulfilling experience, something easy to achieve.

Using these principles we can anticipate the popularity and massive incursion of the public into a sport that enhances the sense that a serene, relaxed way of playing aligns best their inner feel of oneness between the spirit and the thrill of experiencing and mastering the physical universe.

Yes, that is the dilemma. Thinking while playing is not good. But thinking, practicing and experimenting in pressure free rallies and points beforehand is very beneficial. I am a firm believer in experimentation, rather than being a league warrior with pressure to win and no time to experiment.

There is plenty of time to be your own teacher. If you are truly empirical, you will find out more than alot of established professionals will ever let on. But also listen to what others say and ask yourself if that is in fact, true and well reasoned. The enjoyment is the exploration and the testing of technique, not winning for the sake of winning.

Performing vs. Thinking? Why not take the bridge of the two: Experiment!

Getting bogged down into thinking about technique instead of simply performing while playing the game leads to a lot of frustration for the player.  The emphasis of the analytical mind is always on "what am I doing wrong, and how can I prevent myself from doing wrong".  The focus then is off the performance itself, and looking for a weakness in the opponent to exploit.  Teaching players to allow themselves to discover and unlock their performance is my goal as a teacher.

With true technical understanding, things become easier, not harder. Here is one of my favorite quotes:

“Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves.” ― George Gordon Byron.
