One of this similarities is the ability to change direction, quickly and efficiently to create an advantage. Second, once they change direction they can change speeds to really take advantage of the change of direction.
It's looks simple, but it has come from years of preparing, training, studying the game, playing the game, and ultimately wanting to be great.
