Where do you look when the racket strikes the ball?
Thanks for all the answers to my last question, now this is something else that had been bugging me. Where do you look when you hit the ball at the precise moment of impact with the racket. I have read about Roger Federer tilting his head to one side and looking at the impact with the ball through the strings from the back of the racket. Others say that you should concentrate on the racket brushing up the back of the ball. Some say you should watch the ball bounce off the strings. And there are plenty of players who watch the ball till the last moment but as they hit it they are looking at where it is supposed to be going. There are also (I would guess) a great percentage of players who have never even thought about it and just hit the ball. I know you are supposed to keep your head still when you hit the ball and for a split second aterwards, but what am I looking at exactly?. How am I visualising this? I know you only have an instant where you make contact with the ball but what is the thought process?
All advice gratefully accepted.
