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

Have you ever had an opponent aim a return right at you when you're up at the net? Most of the time, when recreational or club level players are in a match and the net player gets drilled by a return, I think it's probably not intentional.  It's more of an attempt at a down-the-line return gone wrong.  But what if your opponent is really trying to hit you with that return?  In this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, I'll answer a listener's question about this and give some really great options for dealing with this kind of return.

Are you giving away points on your return? Are you just handing points over to your opponent without requiring them to any work at all to win the point? In this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, I'm talking about how we can all stop just giving away points when we're returning.  And I'll give you my three best tips for making sure you hit the kind of return that forces your opponent to do some work to win the point, with no help from you.

Every year, at the beginning of the new year, I set a few tennis goals for myself - goals that I hope will improve my game and that I want to accomplish in the coming year. I've done this since 2009 and the results have been pretty inconsistent. Some years, I achieve one, maybe even two of my goals. Some years, nothing seems to happen. In this episode of tennis Quick Tips, I'm going to talk about setting tennis goals again and I'm going to give you the tips I'll be applying in 2016 to hopefully do a better job of achieving my goals. And I hope you'll apply these same tips to achieve your own tennis goals.
