Tips on how to do anything tennis-related!
Adjust Your Focus
Ever wonder why tennis players bounce the ball so many times before serving? And why are pro players always tugging at their clothes? It really is a great strategy!
Attack a Weak Second Serve
The server in tennis usually has an advantage, but when they hit a weak second serve, you can take the advantage by being aggressive with your return.
Before the First Ball
Preparation and strategy for your next tennis match should begin before the first ball is served. You can learn a lot about your opponent from pre-match research and the on-court warm up.
Choosing the Right Tennis Pro
Do you want to learn how to play tennis? Have you thought about taking tennis lessons? The first step is to find the right tennis instructor.
Clay Court Tennis Strategy
The game of tennis played on clay courts requires focused strategy and lots of experience to know the right moves, as shot selection and conditioning are key components on the dirt.
Grass Court Tennis
Adjust your game and your strategy to be more effective on low-bouncing and quick-paced grass tennis courts.
Improve Your Position to Improve Your Tennis Game
If you’re looking to improve your tennis game, start by working harder to improve your position on court. Better preparation as you move to the ball can greatly increase your chances of making a good shot.
Know When to Serve and Volley
The Serve and volley game is a classic strategy to take control of the net and control the points. But does that strategy always work?
Manage Your Frustration in the Wind
Tennis shots can be in or out by inches, but when the wind comes into play, you have to change your tactics for a winning attitude and not allow the wind to become your opponent.
No Partner? No Problem!
Even if you don´t have a tennis partner, you can still work on your game. Many local parks and schools have a wall or backboard to hit against, and if you´re near a tennis facility, you may be able to rent time on a ball machine. Going solo doesn´t mean you can´t work on your game.
One Handed or Two Handed Backhand
So many players now use two hands on the backhand side. The days of Pete Sampras and Steffi Graf are over. Which is more effective?
Playing on Indoor Courts
It’s the same court surface, same balls, same net height, same everything, so then why is playing tennis indoors so much different than playing outdoors? Besides the obvious sun and wind, there are other factors to consider.
Practice With a Purpose
When you go out to the court to practice tennis, that´s what you should do. It's too easy to get in the habit of just "hitting" and not working on strategy and shot placement.
Safety on the Tennis Court
Tennis is a sport for dry weather and a retractable roof. There are many good reasons to be extremely cautious about stepping onto a wet tennis court. Find out why you need to stay dry.
Side or Serve?
You’ve warmed up and you’re ready to start the match, but now what do you do? Who serves and from what side? What about the coin toss?
Simple Winning Tennis Strategy
There are only two ways to win a point in tennis. As much as you think about strategy and tactics, it’s really as simple as winners and errors from you and your opponent. It’s up to you to choose the winning strategy.
