Hey, hey, this is Shaun with the Atlanta Tennis Podcast,

Speaker:

powered by GoTennis.

Speaker:

Today's tennis tip comes from Coach Ben Hesley

Speaker:

of Bull Shark Sports.

Speaker:

Have a listen and let us know what you think.

Speaker:

(upbeat music)

Speaker:

Hi, this is Ben Hesley from Bull Shark Sports.

Speaker:

Today's tip, we're gonna be focused on holding return.

Speaker:

Holding return means winning our return games.

Speaker:

Very similar to how you hear holding surf,

Speaker:

we're focused on winning the games

Speaker:

in which someone is serving to us.

Speaker:

In B and C, out to levels and low levels

Speaker:

of junior competition, this is often the case

Speaker:

because the surf is developmentally weaker

Speaker:

than other parts of players' games.

Speaker:

So it presents an opportunity to take advantage

Speaker:

of our opponent's surf and then break their surf

Speaker:

or what we like to call holding return.

Speaker:

So when you're out there playing,

Speaker:

think about how you can take advantage

Speaker:

of that weaker surf, attack that,

Speaker:

and then hold your return.

Speaker:

Holding return is a concept maybe something I've not heard,

Speaker:

but holding return is really, really viable

Speaker:

in order to win matches at those B and C,

Speaker:

out to levels and those lower levels

Speaker:

of junior competition.

Speaker:

I hope this helps.

Speaker:

I hope that you learn to attack people's surf,

Speaker:

be aggressive and hold return.

Speaker:
