There are books written on the subject of teaching tips. These tips run the gamut from technical to strategic. Angel Rodriquez believes in not only teaching the “mechanics of the sport” but also in providing strong general pointers that will work for an accomplished recreational player or a beginner. Here are Angel’s words of wisdom:
–Don’t try to overpower the ball…stroke it and always follow through.
–Play with courage; don’t be fearful; remain positive.
–Study your opponent carefully; exploit what you think are their weak spots.
–Strive for relaxed concentration…neither too casual, nor too tense.
–After hitting a bad shot or losing a point, forget it and move on.
–Adapt your aggressiveness to the score.
–Never, ever give up. You never know how the ball is going to bounce.
