2c is a proud partner of the Qatar Tennis Federation. We filmed this exclusive, on-court session with a group of tennis coaches in Qatar on the 5Rs in the stroke production cycle. In part 2, the coaches discuss the differences between a ready position and a ready condition.
See how the ready position is based around technique and how the ready condition is the mental state of the player before receiving the ball from the other end of the court. Players need to be both physically (ready position) and mentally (ready condition) ready to react to the incoming ball.
