Drills to Improve Reactions - 8:08

Chris: From your video anticipation, it seems that the only way to improve ones reaction times is experience. I was thinking: are there simply drills that improve reaction times?

Head Movement for Loop - 12:06

Tim: I have always had a bit of a problem when I loop, with my head going up/back, more on my forehand. I know that it is bad but I really struggle to break the habit. As a result I miss the ball quite a bit, and I also think it costs me power. Any tips?

Moving Early for Return of Serve - 18:20

Tam: Hi Alois, I notice against a lot of his opponents Koki Niwa moves to do a backflick from short forehand before the opponent has even contacted the ball, how does he know that the opponent won't play a fast topspin serve long to his forehand?
