Can anyone recommend a good book or instruction resource for match strategy?  Specifically I'm looking for doubles tips right now, but singles as well.  Earlier tonight, I feel like my partner and I lost because we didn't adjust to the opponents' adjustments they made during the match.  I feel like we were mentally outplayed towards the end and I really hate losing a close match (plus I made some dumb choices). 

Are there any good books that have helped your game off-the-shelf?  I realize that playing lots of tennis in different situations with different players may be the best teacher.  But I think I could benefit from some doubles recipes if you will.

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Angie, what level doubles are you playing? Strategies differ between beginners, intermediates and advanced players, but basic doubles strategies are always followed.
Steam the the ball towards the apponent at the net.

A great Tennis book I used years ago and can be found on

Stairsteps to Successful Tennis (SST) written by my college coach, Ben Varn; and Hank Jungle.

I taught under SST program for 2 summers.  One of the best tennis books out there; enjoy.

I just published the book "Developing High Performance Tennis Players"  it presents a view of the game from the perspective of a high performance coach.  In it you will find the "Laws of the Battle" - the tactical principles of tennis - singles and doubles.

Fantastic!  Thanks for sharing your book here.  It would be great to do hear your feedback on some of the questions that players have here.


I am happy to help.  I will be more active!

Hi Angie! 

I'm going to be doing an HD video about doubles strategy very soon.  In the meantime, go to and subscribe to my newsletter (you get a free video on creating effortless power and disguise)! 

Hope that helps!
