I remember the FIRST moment as it was yesterday.

When I hit my first half volley as a child on the tennis court there was no coach around. It occurred 39 feet away from the net on the baseline. It was out of context to where I trained while practicing my volley.

It struck me how effortless I felt to trust my instincts and to hit the ball so efficiently with the combination of power and control in harmony.

Now it happens on both the tennis and pickleball court every day.
