Roger Federer: “If you keep your serve, you can do anything in the rest”
In the inaugural press room of the US Open 2017, Roger Federer content with his recent win in Cincinnati said the key is to always keep his serve and then risk his remains near the serve quadrant.
Federer was very clear in saying the following: “It all starts with the serve. If one can maintain his service, then he can do almost anything in the rest “. All this referring to his recent remains (returns of serve) near the service box to which he was asked if he would repeat them. Where he answered that everything would depend on the strength of his serve. The rival in front and the moment of the match in which he was.
The tennis kick and the rest of the attack
I refer to this recent news to highlight the importance of the tennis game in determining the evolution of a match and how little is being trained on some occasions these strokes despite their great importance. From my point of view, tennis should be trained at least twice as much as any other stroke for two reasons of great weight. The first is that the serve is the most complicated blow of all and therefore requires more training and concentration in it. But on the other hand, the tennis kick is the first blow with which the point is started. So, A good serve of tennis will allow you to start dominating the point and this will considerably increase your chances of winning that point.

A good serve of tennis allows you to maintain your service and to be more aggressive in the returns of serve to press much more to your rival looking for to obtain the break of the serve. That is why in my tennis training with my students I do not know how to debug the game very well. Returning to its origins if necessary. In the same kind of tennis, I try to train the remains of the Andre Agassi style or like Well Roger Federer demonstrated to press the rival and get that break.
In one of my tennis classes, a few days ago I proposed to amateur students (those who do not compete) that we saw an entire hour of only two strokes. The tennis kick debugging the blow very well and then training other attack exercises by playing the point against me and tracing sequences of well-defined beatings repeatedly to automate one or two specific tactical models. The result in this model of tennis lessons is fascinating since the student improves two extremely important blows very quickly in the matches. I can very easily take the tactical models to the subconscious of the player after weeks of training.
I hope this article will help you see how important these two strokes are and devote the time they deserve in your tennis training.
