-from Coach Jose Lambert
Tennis is a sport which requires a lot of quick reactions. Returning serve, reflex volleys, defending overhead smashes are just a few situations in tennis that require quick, efficient reactions. We need to make sure we are practicing these situations regularly in drills, matches, and games to keep up with the ever increasing speed of the game. Let's not forget to use every tennis player's friend "The Wall" to improve those reactions.
Jose Lambert is one of the original coaches at IMG Academy, teaching since 1979. He played at the University of Arkansas and is originally from New Orleans, LA.
