The off-season always sees a number of changes in the coaching teams of tennis players. And 2012 is turning out to be no different.
Big serving South African Kevin Anderson has announced that he has split with his coach Louis Vosloo.
The two have been working together for more than 2 years and Anderson is currently the highest ranked South African man on the ATP circuit.
Anderson rose to no. 29 earlier this year under the tutelage of Vosloo and is currently ranked no. 37 in the world.
Anderson commented on the change, “It’s been a great experience working with Louis. feel like I have improved immensely under his guidance and will always respect and look up to him as a coach and a friend. He helped me grow as a person, both on and off the court. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Anderson was also in the news recently for a fight with the South African Tennis Federation for financial remuneration over Davis Cup appearances.
How to play from the baseline
The expression “to endure the rally” is about those indeterminate moments of a rally where none of the players is leading.
The ability to endure the rally is fundamental when you play a “long rally”, because it offers you the chance to measure your opponent’s strong points and vulnerabilities, besides letting you position as best as possible for your next offensive shot.
