Tennis Myth And Truths
I wrote my book, The 7 Most Destructive Tennis Myths - EXPOSED...
because I am concerned that the traditional or conventional way of teaching
tennis has destroyed the natural, athletic way of learning and playing tennis. It
has instead created a very mechanical, almost robotic way of hitting the tennis
ball. Lost is the ease and natural flow of movement; there is no sense of feeling
the stroke; and there is too much thinking going on about the mechanics of the
stroke. I have seen this lead to frustration, and even anger sometimes, on the
court because a player isn't enjoying the game: he or she is incapable of
producing a consistent, reliable tennis stroke... and that's no fun.
Moreover, hitting the tennis ball improperly can also contribute to painful
tennis elbow or shoulder problems.
So what happens? A player may resort to taking even more tennis lessons from an instructor who
teaches him or her more of the same conventional or traditional methods. What's lost? More time, more
money, more enjoyment. While he or she watches other players getting better and loving the game even
more—because they are receiving the correct information—the frustration turns to despair and he or she
may stop playing all together. This doesn't have to happen to you! Tennis is easier to learn and play that
what you have experienced in the past. You recognize this because you are
reading my report right now... Clearly you are looking for new solutions.
When you read my book, The 7 Most Destructive Tennis
Myths - EXPOSED, you will learn how to move and stroke the tennis ball in a
more natural, efficient, and athletic way. You will also learn why these tennis
myths plagued your development and frustrated you for years. Furthermore,
you will learn corrective techniques and drills to aid you in making your strokes
smoother and effortless; your movement more coordinated and efficient; your
timing much better; and playing with more control—mentally and physically.
Hence, your strokes will improve; you will play better; and, you will enjoy your
time on the court. Tennis will be fun again!
Here is an example of what you will learn in my book:
Myth #1: Hold your racquet firmly and swing toward your target
Truth: This problem is most prevalent on the forehand side. You should hold
the racquet lightly and swing across the back of the ball from right to left (for
right-handers; left-handers reverse this technique). Holding the racquet with a
relaxed grip (fingers are loose on the racquet handle) allows you to accelerate
the racquet-head through the point of contact, yielding more spin, more pace on
your shot, and more control. You will actually decelerate when you hold the grip
too tight. In my book, I teach exactly how to insure that you are truly relaxing
your hand and fingers, and the correct swing path when performing your
forehand swing. Your forehand will be instantly transformed; and, you will be
taking the proper measures to help prevent tennis elbow and shoulder

Great idea for a book! I like myth one which is very good for beginners and beginner/ intermediates. Motez, would you say that your book is targeted toward 2.5 - 3.5 players mostly?
Wow great read really entertaining and informative!
