Learn how to play tennis like Rafael Nadal from tennis pro Angelina Zdorovytska in this Howcast video.


Hi, my name is Angelina Zdorovytska. Right now we're in the beautiful city of Los Angeles in Beverly Hills. I started playing tennis when I was 7 years old. I was ranked number 1 tennis player in the Ukraine. 350 in the world ranking. I run my own business; it's I train very good players. Also, I train beginners, intermediate players. Tennis is my life and my passion. I live for it and now I would like to talk to you about tennis. He's strong, he's fast and he's aggressive. For the most part the way he plays tennis is he's using a lot of spin on the tennis ball, which is a very difficult shot to hit back. He's using a lot of baseline game, he goes to the net, but for the most part he's staying in the baseline and playing very long points, getting every single ball in. For the most part it's very important to play against a player like him, because he hits the ball with a lot of spin. When the ball bounces, the ball throws you very back, you know, to the fence, so you're standing a lot of, you know, you're standing away from the baseline. And very tough to win the point against him because he is getting every single ball in the court, he just doesn't miss. So you need to be very smart how to play against him, you need to be very aggressive, very consistent, not missing anything, because he is not going to forgive you, any shots that you miss. And you need to use a lot of nub game to win the point against Rafael.
