The 4th dimension of tennis.

September 13, 2014

When I heard this I was saying to myself, "Come on!".  Four dimensions?


The I had to figure this out to see if this was a bunch a ya ya.


1st dimension- Hitting from the baseline.  Running back and forth along the back line hitting ground strokes.


2nd dimension- Moving in towards the net and away from the baseline.  Volleys and overheads are added to the bag of tricks.


3rd dimension- Gaining an understanding of how to put spin on the ball and make it bounce high or low.  Slice and top spin play a big role in this dimension.


And now....


4th dimension- TIME    Time can be gained or lost by changing movement, power, tragectory, and/or placement.  Changing the rythm of play to your advantage may be the difference of breaking that plateau in your game.


Here is Yann Auzoux explaining Geometris  or  The 4 dimensions.
