DOUBLES TALK (18)

One clinic I attended was on doubles. An astute observation centered on
doubles partners and the 25 seconds allowed before the next point:
• Beginners. They simply turned and went back to their next
designated spot.
• Club players. They would turn, acknowledge a good shot, high five,
and comment briefly.
• Pros (with no advanced “coaching”). It was noted that pros between
points would almost always turn to the center and talk strategy with
their partner, up the center line, back to the server or receiver’s
location.
Communication!
