Learning from the Past: Rosie Casals' Hands

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 /by

Rosie Casals was one of the shorter players yet was never afraid of a big game—she was the best mixed doubles player of her day and could handle all the power her male opponents could send her way.

Why? Because she had remarkable hands.

When you’re at the net, try to remember that you volley with your hands, not your arms. Just thinking about this over and over again while you practice will make you more fluid and prepare more quickly.
