Tennis Quote of the Day: Length of Contact

"One skill that has been lost in today's fast-paced game with large racquets and high-spin strings is length of contact. [Notice] the length of professional strokes, and [notice] how pros hit through the ball toward their targets. [Most players] don't have a decent length of contact - it's the biggest mistake I see among players. I say to students, pretend you are hitting the ball with the palm of your hand, so you have to go through it for a long time. This will keep you on the ball longer and give your shots more power and precision."
