    Loved the 4 dink to point drill.

    Listen I see the ball but where is the pickles at and how do we use them like do we throw them at the opponent or eat them when we loose?

    Good dinking instruction.

    Another excellent video! Really well done Athena!! Honestly one of THE best explanations of how the body should move during a dink that I have ever heard! (that is truly a gift Athena, hope to see you in more videos)

    This is great content! Could you do a video explaining the correct strategy for ernies?



  11. Nick Byrd on November 3, 2021 at 8:06 pm

    Very helpful!

    8:50 This needs to be preached. I have so many opponents attack a low ball and hit it hard down the middle. The problem is, it’s going to be in the opponent’s forhand attack zone. I smack it right back at them and win the point and they look perplexed. Down the middle is not always the best option and neither is a hard shot. Beginners should know this because they are told middle is always good.

    Really great video! Lots of information in here!!



  14. Suzanne Miller on November 3, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    so many good tips. thank you!



  15. Thurston Kim on November 3, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Great tips, learned a lot. We play with a lot of bangers and I have found that returning their shot as a dink really takes them out of their game and gets you in a position to hit their pop up for a winner.



  16. Julio Ceballos on November 3, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Excellent demonstration again. Thank you.



  17. clairedial1 on November 3, 2021 at 8:15 pm

  19. Karen Hill on November 3, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    what a good video. It was well explained and had the drills added at the end to emphasis the skill. Thanks Athena.



  20. Robert Cosmai on November 3, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    My daughter and I were very lucky to attend a 3 day clinic coached by Athena & Catherine. Their detailed explanations were very helpful. They are the best! Susan C.



  21. Scott Tobkes on November 3, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    GOOD STUFF!



  22. Jeremy Smith on November 3, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    This is awesome. Can you do a video on how to get Katherine?



  23. Linda Smith on November 3, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Video promotes all shoulder and no wrist on dinks and then shows Catherine brushing EVERY dink with her wrist.



  24. Catherine Enbody on November 3, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    Loved watching these folks at the 2019 Nationals in Indian Wells – thanks for another great video!

    Athena does such a thorough job with her instructions. Lots of good information here with good examples of drills to use.



  30. Stephen Erickson on November 3, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    I love the content and can’t get enough of it. My dinks are inconsistent and I may be moving my body too much. Great tips/drills! Can’t wait to go play tomorrow AM.
