Tennis Quick Tips | Fun, Fast and Easy Tennis - No Lessons Required

Here's my public service episode - all about CPR and AED certification.  Last summer, I myself became certified and I've just recently gone through a refresher course.  It made me realize how important this lifesaving skill is not just on the tennis court, but in everyday life.  So in this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, I'm going to tell you why you should get CPR / AED certified.

Where's the best place to put the ball in doubles?  If you're anything like me, you want to be up at the net, hitting a severe sharp angle off the court that not only can your opponents not return, but everyone claps when the point is over and tells you how incredible your shot was.  That is usually called going for the low-percentage shot and that is the kind of tennis I find myself constantly trying to play.

It has taken me a long time and a lot of lost points to accept that the beautiful severe angle shot is not always the smart shot when I'm playing doubles.  Often, just putting the ball right back down the middle, between my opponents, is the smartest and easiest way to win the point.  Why is this true?  Why do we need to keep reminding ourselves in our doubles matches that "down the middle solves the riddle"?  In this episode, I'll give you four good reasons why.

It's time for a tennis quick tip on the serve!  While the serve may be the most important stroke in tennis, I believe the toss is the most important part of the serve.  And that's why you need to always hit a good serve.  Too often, we get lazy or impatient and just hit any old toss.  Instead, we need to learn to be patient and wait for that perfect toss before hitting our serve.

Because the weather has been so dang cold lately, I've had a lot of my tennis matches cancelled.  But just because I can't get out and play tennis doesn't mean i'm not working on my tennis.  I've pulled out some of my favorite tennis books to go through and one I'm really loving right now is Jeff Greenwald's The Best Tennis of Your Life: 50 Mental Strategies for Fearless Performance.  In this episode, I'll tell you what I get out of this book and why I think you can benefit from it too.
