    Great article,! Many don’t understand the depth of the teaching process John administered to get a 10 mph increase in speed,

    1.Video review by John quickly determined that there were two critical checkpoints that just needed tweaking. John was able to retrieve those checkpoints and choose appropriate pro models from his vast mental image library.
    2.He was able to fast track buy-in by Drew to compare and contrast his performance with the selected pro models.
    3. Drew was willing to try to visually retain the pro images and reinforce those images with kinesthetic shadowing incrementally, both with and without a ball feed.
    4.Improvement was verified by a measurable result of ball speed.

    All in two hours with minimal verbal explanation!!! Why on earth would a player or coach resist video feedback and subsequent mental imaging, especially if verified with a measurable result? Not everyone has a mental image library like John and his ability to retrieve, compare and contrast checkpoints and their subtleties. But everyone should at least see the simplicity and power of the process and be willing to integrate it into their coaching.

    It will be interesting to see if the increase in Drew’s forehand speed can somehow be associated in some fashion with match analysis.
