HOA Reminders

Remember that front yards must be installed within 6 months of breaking ground on your new home. Front yards must be sod (pre-cut pieces) only, with an automatic sprinkler system. Vinyl fences must be tan in color. Please visit the resources page on the HOA website for links with detailed information. Monthly statements can be emailed (contact K&R) HOA dues can be paid via ACH drafting (contact K&R). You have the option to pay monthly or yearly. If you’re able to do so, paying yearly provides the HOA with more operating funds to complete projects throughout the community sooner rather than later. No gravel driveways or “horse fences” permitted. Those currently in existence must be converted to landscaping/ concrete or the fencing must be removed by September 1, 2014. When you take your pet for walks in the neighborhood, please remember to pick up after them. There are two new dogipot stations (dog waste removal systems) located along the walking trails.

Spring Creek Ranch - March 2014



By USPTA/PTR Master Professional Fernando Velasco

How To Execute The Forehand Drop Shot In previous newsletters, I offered tips on how to hit the forehand groundstroke, the two-handed backhand, the one-handed backhand, the forehand volley, the two handed backhand volley, the serve, the forehand half-volley, the one-handed backhand volley, the overhead “smash”, the forehand service return, the backhand service return, the forehand high volley approach shot, the two handed high volley approach shot, the one-handed high volley approach shot, the forehand lob, the two-handed backhand lob and the one-handed backhand lob. In this issue, I will offer instructions on how to execute the Forehand Drop Shot. This shot is used when a player is deep on the baseline and returns a short soft ball. The player hitting the drop shop is forcing the opponent to run toward the net. This ball should be hit high enough to clear the net and almost bounce back toward the net. If the player running for the shot can get it on the first bounce, it will likely be off balance and will be forced to make an error or return for an easy put away volley. In the illustrations, Fernando Velasco, Manager and Director of Tennis at the Grey Rock Tennis Club, shows the proper technique to execute this stroke. This shot can also be executed from the base line when the opponent is expecting a deep return of a serve.

Step 1: The Back Swing: When Fernando detects the ball landing short and high, he starts his back swing high and compacted. He is using the continental grip and keeping his eyes focused on the flight of the ball. His left hand is up front to keep the proper body balance. Step 2: The Point of Contact: Fernando is now ready to perform the drop shot. His eyes are now focused on the point of contact and the face of the racket is angled up to create the underspin on the ball. His goal is to keep his head still. His left hand is still in front and his weight is shifting toward his left foot. Step 3: The Follow Through: The success of a drop shot is to keep the ball on the strings as long as possible. Fernando is almost “cupping” the ball during the follow through. Fernando’s grip is relaxed and the head of the racket is pointing toward the sky. His left shoulder is almost opening to the net and his eyes are following the path of the ball. Step 4: The Ready Position: Once Fernando finishes the stroke, his goal is to follow the path of the drop shot. If he created a good drop shot and sees his opponent running with the head of the racket down, Fernando will move closer to the net or anticipate the angle shot. More likely it will be an easy sitter for a put away volley.

FOLLOW UP ON YOUR HEART HEALTH Eating healthy and exercising are well known tips to keep your heart healthy, but doctors at Baylor College of Medicine say don't forget about the follow-ups. "Many times people will see a doctor and receive a diagnosis of high cholesterol or blood pressure, for example, but they won't follow up with another appointment," said Dr. Joseph Coselli, professor of surgery at Baylor. "These secondary doctor visits are needed to monitor progression of risk factors and to help find the most effective treatment options." Coselli recommends asking your doctor some important questions: • What is a healthy weight for me? • What does a balanced diet consist of? • How do I quit smoking? • What exercises should I add to my daily routine? • What health screenings should I have?
