Since the season started, I have seen improvements with my tennis skills. For example, my serves have become much more consistent and accurate. I was able to achieve this by firstly practising on my second serve and getting used to the topspin. Furthermore, I changed the way I toss the ball and also get into my position to seek a rhythm which can hopefully make my serves more consistent.
Although I was able to see developments, I still have a lot to work on until SEASAC. For example, I have to work on the consistency during rallies by putting on more topspins. I think this can be achieved if I consciously pull the racket more downwards before hitting the ball. Additionally, I have to work on the footwork and also my stamina so that I will be able to perform well during matches, even under pressure.
So for the remaining few weeks of training before SEASAC, I would like to show my commitment by practising outside of school and identifying the specific skills that I need to develop to use the training times efficiently.
LO1: Identify your own strengths and develop areas for personal growth.
LO2: Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process.
