During play should the player try to follow the ball right into the racquet on every shot or just try to anticipate where the racquet and the ball will make contact and keep eye contact toward the opponent?

Hi Silas,

Welcome back...

You tend to watch the ball till it is about 30cm away from your bat and then rely on the tracking and memory for flight paths.  It is difficult to watch it all the way into your bat.
