You’ll hear a good explanation of this tip in the video, but I want to add one more thing: one of the mental reasons why players stop breathing when they hit the ball is because they think “hard”.

They want to hit the ball hard. But in our experience, whenever we think hard, we tense and use many muscles (and also stop breathing for a while).

Tennis is different – don’t think “hard”, think “fast”. Your arms and body must be somewhat loose to achieve the whip effect when you swing at the ball.

This is especially important when you serve. The following video will show you a simple way to breathe correctly when you play.
