Keep Your Eye on the Ball! In a tennis life that has spanned roughly from my early teens to today, I cannot possibly count how many times I’ve heard (or said) that familiar phrase. And I believe that it is true… with some caveats. I’ve noticed several top pros in photos hitting a shot, with their eyes clearly NOT on the ball.
So, what is the real lesson here? I once read an article in Tennis Magazine and I’ve since taken the main points and boiled them down into my own theory of watching the ball. (Apologies to the original writer, I searched but couldn’t find the reference.)
