'Direct the ball with your body weight'

Arrived early at the National Tennis Centre this morning for some coach education tutor training and managed to catch the beginning of a regional training session (in which Everyballer Amelie Brooks is involved in) led by Martin Weston.

Nice quote by Martin during the warm-up:

'Direct the ball with your body weight.  That's why you need to be neat with your feet and get behind the ball.  That's how you become a chamption.'

Great environment and energy!

25 wins 25 losses year to date gets you into ATP top 30

Nikoloz Basilashvili, Kyle Edmund’s opponent in semi finals of China Open (500 event) will break into top 30 in world next week with a 50% win/loss record this year.

Nice point made by commentary on Sky that it’s so important for junior players to recognise that there is a fair share of ‘losing’ even at the very top level.
