We focused on the serve first. I learned it was critical to throw the ball straight in the air without it going forwards, backwards, or to the sides. Then I learned how to hit it. The wrist needs to be straight and you have the racquet facing down so you'll get the ball nice and low over the net. After this quick lesson, my serves really improved.
Next, the backhand. I learned to run up to the ball, but without getting too close, then holding my racquet with two hands, swing level and make contact with the ball nice and hard. This hit will make your opponent speechless!
I hit the ball around a few more times with my daddy, feeling really proud because of my serves and backhand returns were better. I think the lesson today is that practicing improved my game a lot. Practicing and my daddy's wonderful coaching helped me get better at tennis.
Do you do an activity such as sports? I like to play tennis, volleyball, badminton, rock climbing, rollerblading, swimming and the list goes on and on. I love to be active. And remember, if you practice you'll become extremely good over time at those things you practice a lot doing. Remember, practice makes perfect. Want to tell me something you improved on? Just post it online. I can't wait to hear about your improvement. Bye!
