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.

Let's talk about the serve - again. And let's talk about my favorite part of the serve - the toss. Specifically, how are you holding the tennis ball when you are preparing to toss? Have you given that much thought? If not, you may want to because in this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, I'm going to tell you how I think you should hold the ball to get the best toss when you serve.

Some of the best tennis advice can be distilled down into one sentence or one line. And I'll bet you've used this particular tennis “one-liner” several times in the course of your tennis-playing career - play one point at a time. In this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, we're going to talk about playing one point at a time and how that one-liner can be used to help you play better tennis during your next match.

Believe it or not, there are some tennis players that no one wants to partner with! They are not bad players. In fact, they may be pretty darn good. They make their shots. They win more than they lose. But, for a variety of reasons, these players just take all of the fun out of playing tennis. And if you play doubles with any regularity, especially if you play for a team, you might just find yourself partnered with one of these "bad" tennis partners. So how do you deal with these players? How do you play when your partner seems to be the worst tennis partner ever? That's what we're talking about in this episode of Tennis Quick Tips.

I'm a big believer in the idea that there are lots of tiny things we can do that can have a huge impact on our tennis game. One of those is to play with the best equipment possible. In this episode of Tennis Quick Tips, we discuss the grip of your tennis racket - the one thing that comes in direct contact between you and your racket. I'll explain just what the grip is and how you can improve it to make sure your grip, and your racket, are in excellent shape.
