Hate to mention it, but why do they have her dressed in hot pink shorts at that age? A little on the child beauty contestant side.
The dad is a little pushy and so is the mom. Look at her hard bottom lip when she talks. The kid is on the verge of tears midway in the match at 4-5?
Gabby has a very strong will and good attention to technique. But when she is running frantically out of her strong will, her technique does break down. Rick Macci, I'm surprised he would train her in that way. Just seems to be looking for evidences of willpower at that young age of 9. Let's not call her a prodigy too soon and let her grow into her own rate.
Gabby is very fortunate to have a mother who's humble and realistic... She'll need her as she gets older because there's girls Gabby's age and younger taller and more athletic in California and France that are more advanced and would wake the dad up to reality if Gabby was to face one of those kids.
Dad needs to chill, as a parent and a teaching professional know how hard that is. I started with my children very young and they are wonderful players, now adults and successful people. This dad must stay away from teaching her or this will be a short lived experience. She must love the game and Dad must sit back in his chair and compliment her winning or losing and show her love and not be involved by pushing her. I have seen many talented children lose interest because of their parents. She is talented for 9 years old but, no offense meant the world has a lot of talented children. This little girl has access to professional training. I have been teaching for 30+ years and seen some very talented children, as long as she really wants to play and trains she could have a future in the game. I hope Rick can help the father in his position to be the daddy not the drill Sargent
Very interesting. Her service motion is already so smooth and natural. I showed this vid to my 10 year old son and my 7 year old daughter. My son has been getting more serious about his tennis game, but sometimes he doesn't want to do the "boring practice" which he considers serve and toss practice as. I hope he can learn from this girl's great attitude.
