Juan “Pico” Mónaco en Showmatch (Junio 2009)

Today it is going to be a very different post that what I’ve been writting or translating before. This is a video that Pico Monaco recorded for a tv program from Argentina called Showmatch. If there is anybody who read this blog and haven’t seen it yet then I hardly recomend to watch it because it is very very very funny and, if you have already watched it, it doesn’t hurt to watch it again lol!!

If anyone wants translation from what they say please do not hesitate to ask for it 😉

The serve explained by Horacio Zeballos

Fila video about playing recomendations, the first episode, the serve, explained by Horacio Zeballos. I upload the video here and I’ll make a transcript of what he says. Enjoy it!!

“The key to make a good serve is try to catch the ball well up and try to vary the effects, because if someone serves always the same way, for example flat serve, the opponent is going to get used to it easily. That is the reason why it is important to vary the effects. What it is also important is to take your time before serving, you have to try to focus where you want the serve to be and if you do that, it is going to be way much easier that the ball goes where you want it to. Then you get focus on the place where you are gonna serve the ball, stay concentrated, bouce the ball some times because it generates a better visualization for each serve. And that one was an ACE”.

The Drop Shot explained by Horacio Zeballos

Fila video about playing recomendations, the second episode, the drop shot is explained by Horacio Zeballos. I upload the video here and I’ll make a transcript of what he says. Enjoy it!!

“The drop shot is mostly used in clay because you have more time and the ball does not bounce in and out as fast as if in a concrete court. The key in the drop shot is throw the ball and try to surprise the opponent becase if the opponent is within the court will not have the same function than if you’re into the field continuously attacking, moving  the player along the court and you then use the drop shot. That is therefore essential, try to use the drop shot whenever the player is far behind the baseline”
