Author, Chris lewit visits Spain and becomes a process observer- as gracious and welcoming Spanish tennis leaders share everything- there are no "secrets."
Full disclosure, I had the distinct privilege to get a glimpse of the Spanish tennis system: about 20 years ago when I brought my 10 year old son to his first tournament- the US Open. I recall, approaching a practice court and I stopped like a "deer in headlights" - our heads turning side to side as a stocky coach volleyed to a scrambling player on the baseline all the while sharing quips with a father and his son.
As a certified tennis instructor/ player and parent- I suggest you purchase the book- read about Pato Alvarez, and all the other Spanish coaches, check out the drills that are clearly depicted, especially my two favorites: Wall Drill and the Spanish X Drill. Then get out on the court and work on movement, footwork, balance, etc. Be a doer- you know the secrets!
