Suraj and the technical team of certified and experienced coaches have developed the training system that will be applied at the Academy.
It is a system that is regularly updated because the tennis industry is constantly developing, with changing materials that influence the speed of play (racquets, strings, balls…) and evolving training methods (especially in terms of physical and mental training) which ensure that we are seeing stronger, faster and more agile players than ever before on the professional circuits.
Emerging trends clearly show that the game of tennis is becoming progressively faster; points are shorter and the start of play (serve/return) is hugely influential to the subsequent development of the point. This means that players have to be prepared to make decisions in a shorter time.
We understand that modern tennis, and tennis of the future is played first with the ‘eyes’, then with the ‘mind’, later with the ‘legs’ and finally with the ‘hands’. At the Academy we apply training systems geared in this direction, combining them with the skills that have brought success to many of players, such as mobility, winning spirit, intensity (in training and in competition), concentration and a competitive mentality.
During the training we will decide the amount of time to be dedicated to each of these aspects of play (technical, strategic, physical and mental) in order to ensure that our athletes are as competitive as possible. All training should be carried out with a clear objective, applying the maximum concentration, with no differentiation in this respect between training and competitive matches.
