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

What is the I Formation and how do you use it in doubles without messing your own play up? In this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, I talk to tennis pro Ian Westermann of Essential Tennis. Ian explains what the I Formation is, what the Australian Formation is, and just how you can put both of those formations to work in your doubles matches. He even gives some insider tips on hand signals. Guess what? They're not as hard to use as you might think!

This is the first episode in my brand new series, Simple Serve Tips. There are so many moving parts to the serve and it can be hard to get a handle on all of them. So, in this series, we're going to look at the entire serve picture - every little bit of it and how each piece can be improved upon to make your serve a better, more reliable tool in your game. Maybe you're happy with your serve. Maybe you think your serve is perfect and needs no adjusting or tweaking. But even at the pro level, we see players constantly working to improve their serve. So I encourage you to listen in no matter what the quality of your serve because sometimes just re-thinking what you're doing when you're serving can have a huge impact on the quality of your serve.

In this first episode in the Simple Serve Tips series, I talk about where you should stand when you hit your serve and how you can take best advantage of your serving position on the baseline.

I recently started teaching adult beginner tennis.  I really don't consider myself a tennis pro, however, because I'm teaching ladies who have never played the game before and I'm teaching them the most basic aspects of tennis.  I was thinking about these beginner tennis players when I was looking through my tennis books (as I do) and was wondering what book would I have liked to have read when I was starting to play the game.  And that book is, without a doubt, Tennis Beyond Big Shots: The New Power Game by Greg Moran, and that's the book I'm reviewing for you today.

What is up with people and the crazy things they do before they serve? Some of the antics we see on court these days seem less about serve preparation and more about playing mind games. In this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, we're going to talk about something we've all faced at one time or another, or at least we think we've faced it. Sometimes it's hard to be sure. We're going to talk about gamesmanship on the serve - what it is and how you can deal with it.
