Technique

Technique to me encompasses how to move your body in order to execute a shot properly.

Technique is what allows you to hit the ball with control, to hit it consistently, and to hit with power. When I was 13 I could hit my serves with more power than most grown adults. It wasn’t because I weighed 100 or 110 lbs! It was because I understood how to use my body efficiently. It’s all about imparting energy onto a small point over a short period of time, with little wasted energy.
