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

In doubles, it can get confusing knowing exactly when and how you should switch sides during a point.  And this confusion is bad because it can result in leaving huge areas of the court open into which your opponents can easily hit a shot and win the point. So in this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, I'll give you 5 super simple tips to help you know how and when to switch sides during a doubles point. And I'll give you some bonus information on how to get your partner on board with this even if you're playing with a new partner or someone with a reputation for not moving much on court.

How did Novak Djokovic transform himself from a pretty good tennis player into one of the greatest tennis players ever? According to him, a large part of his success is attributable to the diet and lifestyle changes he made in 2010.  He eats gluten-free, believes in stretching, yoga and foam rolling, and lives in a mindful way.  Sounds like something we can all do, right? In this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, I'll tell you why I think Serve to Win is such a good book and how it might help you to become a better tennis player.

You may have heard that tennis is 50% physical and 50% mental.  For me, it's more like 75% mental.  That's because tennis is not just physically demanding, it is one of the most mentally challenging sports out there. While many of our performance problems can be due to poor physical conditioning, inadequate coaching or just a lack of ability, a lot of mental factors can also have a huge impact on how well, or how poorly, we play.  One of these is not having the right mindset during play.  There  are different mindsets you need to have for practice and for matches.  In this episode, I tell you what these two mindsets are and how you can apply them to play better, more winning, tennis.
