Tennis Quote of the Day: Practice Smart

"Tennis is a technique game. Too many errors are what get most people beaten. Practicing "smart" in addition to practicing "long" leads to the best execution of all. Practicing "smart" means applying constant, concentrated thought to your games during practice sessions. This is hard mental work. And it should concentrate on producing the perfect stroke on each repetition. Each one increases the strength of a habit. And your objective is to program into your bank of habits the most mechanically perfect stroke you can."
