Watch the ball, move your feet

January 25, 2004
Andre Agassi

Q. What sorts of thoughts go through your head, what do you tell yourself when you're facing break points?
ANDRE AGASSI: "Watch the ball, move your feet." That's the first thing you learn; that's the last thing you learn.

Tennis is not about manipulations with racquet. Tennis is about manipulations with ball, like soccer, basketball or volleyball. This so much easier and natural way to develop player like Andre.

By the way, Andre's father "Agassi then went on to amass a collection of over 18,000 tennis balls (made up of rubbish bins filled with 300 tennis balls each). Agassi would hit 3,000 to 5,000 of these balls every day."
