BLUF: Get it! Excellent training tool for all levels of tennis players. I was very skeptical of this device; but, I trained it for two days, and I went out on the tennis court to apply my training to execution, and I was overwhelming surprised.
I was bored at home; it was 0106 hours, and I couldn’t fall asleep; so, I went on Amazon to go shopping. I was shopping for tennis stuff…I didn’t know the stuff I wanted, so I was browsing.
I came across the Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Pro, and I watched videos of players reviewing this product; and, I was very much intrigued with a little skepticism. The thing that removed my skepticism was the video, supra.
I follow this guy on YouTube; his name is, Ramon Osa. He gives excellent tennis tips; so, I made the purchase of this product; and, I am so glad I did. It’s worth the money I paid.
I just got this product about a day ago. I decided to test its effectiveness by working on my forehand stroke. I’m using my brand new Wilson RF97A. Because this racquet is lighter than my 25+ year old Volkl C10 Pros, I’m working on adjusting the timing of uncoiling my body, weight transfer, and wrist release after contacting with the tennis ball. I’m being slow and methodical to train my eyes and body movement to my brain.
I did this for 200+ repetitions, and I took my training to the tennis court against real-time play; and, I was overwhelmed with the amazing results of improvements to my forehand.
As a test, I did not work on my backhand with the Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Pro; because, I wanted to see if the product really worked; and, the product really works.
Today, 7-November-2021, I put my training on the Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach against this solid USTA tournament playa, Raj. We played two-shot ATP points.
I use an Eastern Forehand Grip for my forehand shots; and, my forehand shots were noticeably more powerful and less errors; because, my eyes immediately locked on to the tennis ball that was coming at me with substantial speed and weight from Raj.
Without even thinking about looking at the ball, my eyes immediately locked on the ball, and my body was already in the forehand set-position to make contact with the incoming projectile.
When I made contact, my eyes stayed on the ball at the point of impact. All the timing, contact point, weight transfer, uncoiling my body, wrist snap, and moving forward into the court all happened automatically without my thinking about it, resulting in a solid contact generating weight and speed on my forehand shot.
Prior to training with the Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Pro, I always had to force my eyes to stay on the ball at the point of impact and after impact. I would get a consistent clean contact.
Now, after my little time with the Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Pro, my eyes stayed on the ball at the point of impact and after impact instinctively — without having to think about it or make any forced efforts.
As a result, my forehand was more reliable, and I had more powerful shots off my forehand side with less error, and it happened in a natural, smooth, fluid movement. It’s amazing.
Now, as I mentioned, I didn’t do any really considerable workout on my backhand side with the Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach; because, I wanted to see if the device really worked.
My backhand was inferior to my forehand; and, I did notice that my eyes did not focus on the ball at the point of impact and after impact. I had to make a conscientious effort to get my eyes on the ball on the backhand side; and, even when I did get my eyes on the ball on my backhand side, my eyes were not as still and focused like they were on my forehand side.
As a result, I shanked more shots on my backhand side than my forehand side.
On my forehand side, I felt something I never felt before when my eyes stayed lock on to the the ball…I felt like I had plenty of time to hit my forehand. When I locked on to the ball, it felt like the ball slowed down, and I was able to really smack the shit out of the ball, and I had more clean contacts with the ball.
I need to have more time with the Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Pro, and I will start incorporating my backhand into my training routine.
Eventually, I will move my training to the Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Pro 3-count training level, whereby the Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Pro starts throwing ~60 MPH balls at me.
Great job Ms. Billie Jean King for creating and awesome and effective tennis training tool: The Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Pro.
