Practice and Drills

Keep in mind that practice doesn’t always make perfect. Sometimes it just irons bad habits into your brain. So try your best to work hard at everything you do every moment of practice. Bend your legs, think about something and practice it a hundred or a thousand times until it becomes a natural instinct. You’re not going to be able to do everything perfectly on every single shot – nobody can! Half the time I post a video of myself to illustrate footwork, and realize I need to fix something on another part of my game. So don’t beat yourself up if you’re not perfect. Just build your foundation. This is where you get better.

And remember – He who trains hardest, wins!
