5 RAZONES PARA GOLPEAR CRUZADO- EL SECRETO DEL TENIS.

August 21, 2019


TENNIS IS A GAME OF PERCENTAGES AND THE WINNER IS THE ONE WHO MAKES LESS MISTAKES THAT IS WHY WE SHOULD CHOOSE A PROPER SHOT TACTICALLY CORRECT IN THOSE MILISECONDS IN THIS EPISODE OF SMART TENNIS WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT CROSSCOURT SHOTS, A TACTIC THAT IS VERY WELL-TRAINED BUT WE DON’T REALLY KNOW THE REASONS WHY WE DO IT. THROUGHTOUT THIS EPISODE I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU 5 REASONS TO HIT FOREHANDS AND BACKHANDS CROSSCOURT REASON #1
THE HEIGHT OF THE NET THE HEIGHT OF THE NET MEETS AN IMPORTANT ROLE WHEN HITTING CROSSCOURT The height of the net shall be 3 feet (0.914 m) at the centre, and the two net posts a height of 3 ½ feet (1.07 m). ACCORDING TO ITF. IN THIS PHOTO, WE SEE THE FRENCH ‘PAIRE’ DECIDES TO HIT CROSSCOURT, TROUGH THE LOW PART OF THE NET WITHOUT RISKING, OPENING THE COURT AND ‘DE MINAUR’ FORCING HIM TO HIT COMPLETELY OFF BALANCE REASON #2 THE LENGHT OF THE COURT IN THIS GRAPHIC WE CAN OBSERVE THAT THE DISTANCE IN DIAGONAL FROM THE BASELINE IS 82,5 FT (25,15 MTS) AND THE DISTANCE DOWN THE LINE FROM BASELINE IS 78 FT (23, 78 MTS) WHAT CAN WE USE THIS INFORMATION FOR? IN THIS POINT AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2004 FEDERER FACING ANDY RODDICK IS GOING TO HIT THE BALL CROSSCOURT, TO ‘BUY TIME’ AND RECOVER THE CENTER TO MAKE RODDICK ‘MOVE’ FROM SIDE TO SIDE AND FINALLY ‘BRING’ HIM UP TO THE NET TO HIT A PASSING SHOT REASON #3 TO CREATE SPACE MOVING YOUR OPPONENT IN THIS POINT WE SEE CORIA FACING GAUDIO, ROLAND GARROS FINAL IN 2004 CORIA CREATES SPACE BY HITTING CROSSCOURT AND JUST WHEN THE BALL IS SHORT HE ATTACKS DOWN THE LINE IN THIS POINT ONE GAUDIO IS THE ONE WHO WILL TAKE THE LEAD HITTING CROSSCOURT AND CREATING SPACE AND, ONCE THE SPACE IS CREATED, HE DEFINES THE POINT. REASON #4 REDUCE UNFORCED ERRORS IN THIS ANALYSIS OF THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN, FEDERER’S STATISTICS AND HIS CROSSCOURT BACKHANDS, ARE AMAZING TOP SPINS SHOTS’ HEIGHT ARE MARKED IN RED, WHICH HAVE BOUNCED 1.36 MTS ON AVERAGE AND SLICE SHOTS’ ARE MARKED WITH YELLOW, WHICH BOUNCED JUST 0,39 MTS ON AVERAGE. CONTINUING WITH ‘UNFORCED ERRORS REDUCTION’ Concept. WE HAVE ANOTHER EXAMPLE, WAWRINKA’S CASE, WHO ACCORDING THIS ANALYSIS HAS HIT CROSSCOURT BACKHANDS 76 % AND HIS SHOTS ‘DOWN THE LINE’ WERE JUST 24 % OF THE TOTAL SHOTS. TO CONCLUDE WITH THE REASON 4 ( ERRRORS’ REDUCTION’) WE HAVE DIMITROV WITH A TYPICAL EXAMPLE. WHICH HAPPENS OFTEN. WHEN WE WANT TO GO DOWN THE LINE. A SHOT THAT DEMANDS TAKING A BIG RISK, DUE TO THE HEIGHT OF THE NET AND THE LENGHT OF THE COURT. REASON #5 TO ‘BUY TIME’ AND RECOVER THE MIDDLE OF THE COURT TO ‘BUY TIME’ IS WHEN A PLAYER IS IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION AND NEEDS HIS SHOT TO ‘TAKE LONGER’ TO GET TO THE OPPONENT AND BE ABLE TO RECOVER THE MIDDLE OF THE COURT IN THIS CASE, FEDERER ‘BUYS’ TIME TWO TIMES SLICING THE BALL AND THE THIRD ONE IS A CROSSCOURT WHICH TAKES SO LONG TO GET TO RODDICK AND ALLOWS HIM TO RECOVER THE MIDDLE AND EXECUTE THIS PASSING SHOT CLOSING WITH THIS FANTASTIC EPISODE OF SMART TENNIS I LEAVE YOU WITH RAFA NADAL TRAINING A FEW YEARS AGO WITH HIS ‘UNCLE TONI’ NADAL DEFENSIVE CROSSCOURT FOREHANDS WITH A BIG MARGIN OF SAFETY, OVER THE NET AND A LOT OF TOP SPIN I HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS EPISODE PLEASE COMMENT DOWN BELLOW, LIKE THE VIDEO AND SUSCRIBE FOR THIS CHANNEL WHICH DEMANDS A LOT OF TIME AND WORK FERNANDO GARCIA, SMART TENNIS,
