The countdown for the restart of the sport has begun! In less than 5 days we will be playing tennis again! Within days there will be a more detailed announcement on how we can protect ourselves and our co-athletes without losing the joy of the sport.
But now is the right time to check if we and our equipment are really ready for the tennis comeback. We remind you that jogging is the most effective way to keep your body in general shape. But even better is to grab a racket. After a good warm-up, pretend to be on a tennis court and execute a few imaginery strokes.
Concentrate on the clarity of your technique and work it out even in front of a large mirror (or glass mirrors). It’s something even professional players like Japanese Kei Nishikori do. Even better, if you have plenty of space, pretend to be in imaginery rallies and points with a fantastic opponent. Serves, forehands, backhands, approaching the net, everything is allowed in your imagination. For an even better sense of movement, now put your racket in a case so that the swing has a more natural resistance as in reality with the impact of the ball!
