Tip of the week: establishing a baseline
Many players when they get tight or nervous rush towards the ball and this makes timing difficult and it also makes it impossible to swing freely at the ball.
Every player should understand and be aware of their own baseline.
Nadal’s baseline is different from Fed’s. There is no one right baseline for every player and your baseline may vary depending on your opponent.
The sense of waiting that arises when you have a baseline can be uncomfortable at first, but when you connect to the waiting and become aware of it, it will change the way you feel on the court.
Instead of constantly feeling rushed, you will feel you have so much time and that will help to produce much better shots.
Explore this on the court as you play and see what happens!
