While you're not allowed to have on-court coaching during your tennis matches, the USTA's Rules of Tennis do allow you to look at notes on court. But can you look at notes on court in the middle of a game or between points? Can you put your notes in your pocket and then pull them out to review right before you serve? What's the rule on this and what's the best way to make use of notes on the tennis court? In this episode, I'll answer a listener question raising this issue, I'll go into what I think the rules of tennis have to say, and I'll give you a great way to remind yourself of the one, most important thing you need to remember in every tennis match you play, on every point.
