RACQUET SPORTS TIP
From: Kevin Cretella, The Director of Racquet Sports

“The Split Step”


Make it a point to split step every time your opponent hits the ball. This will have you in better rhythm with the ball and you will always be able to turn in the correct direction based on the direction your opponent’s racquet face is pointing at their contact point. Try this out this month and let me know how it works for you!

FUN FACT!
Only three players in the past 30 years have averaged winning north of 54 per cent of all points they played. If you guessed a Spaniard, a Serbian and a Swiss, you would be dead right.

Rafael Nadal – 54.55% (96,208/176,360)
Novak Djokovic – 54.40% (92,938/170,841)
Roger Federer – 54.17% (126,548/233,608)
