Just speaking the truth Oscar. Do you remember that visit up here to Yucca Valley? Gail Stewart arranged the visit.
As I was as looking back on my comment, I noticed I really should've proof read it! Oh well.
So how does someone like me get certified in the MTM?

Wow, Gerald, I'm floored. This is such a beautiful statement. Thank you.

Kind regards, Oscar.

Well I heard of Oscar and the MTM a few years back but I was active duty Navy and did some deployments to Iraq. Needless to say I wasn't playing much tennis. I wasn't until after I retired in 208 and started playing tennis again, that I thought to change to the modern method. There was a noticeable difference with how I played and how the Pros played. I treid to make the changes on my own but never quite understood the differences. Mild you I played very well (4.5 or better when I played often) but there was a gap betwwen my style and the Pros.

It wasn't until Jan 2009, when Oscar came to Yucca Valley, Ca that I adopted the new style. Since I was the prominent player and teacher, I was asked to be a ball feeder during Oscar's clinic. Even though I was helping, I learned so much that day and knew this was what was missing from my game. And, it was amazing to learn with Oscar right there!
After the clinic, Oscar had his book and DVDs available. I bought them all! I took a pic with Oscar and one of my female students who was there, also had to some convo. I think I was the last one to go besides his ride.
Some of my students were there and I immediately retaught them the MTM and all my new students get the same training.

NOW, after playing tennis for over 30 years do I understand how to play! I'm fit and I train using plyometrics and other fitness routines, so I do move around the court well and hit pretty hard. My tennis is better than ever! I hit with incredible pace/spin and the ball stays in. I can do that all day!

It is so evident when these techniques are adopted by a nation that awesome players are produced. Look at who the dominent players are and what techniques THEY use. Looks like what Oscar has been saying for so long is true. America is soooo far behind and it shows in the professional tennis arena. A tennis BOOM is needed in America!

Thank you Oscar Wegner for making my game the best ever! I continue to devour your book and DVDs. I do so to make it second nature when I teach others. I may not be able to change the AMERICAN tennis world but I can change my little piece of it.

The previous comment was written by Oscar Wegner, and filed wrongly under my name.

Dean, very interesting. If the PTR would let their 15,000 coaches know about my DVDs and book, tennis would hit a boom in the USA the likes they never seen. That is what they probably are afraid of, someone else getting credit.
If anyone else reading this wants a copy of this latest Tennis Tip Newsletter, they can send me an e mail to
Let me know what happens this summer, Dean.

I found Oscar's newsletter this month interesting. He was talking about the PTR method. At my camps and clinics this summer, this PTR certified pro will be teaching the MTM method. I'll let you know how it goes if there's any intrest.

Yes, I will try to step back!
Thanks a lot!
Comment by Lucile Bosche´ on May 13, 2009 at 2:14pm
Martin, regarding the foot fault question:

I suggest that you step back at least one shoe length from where you usually set up behind the baseline for the serve. Quick fix without changing anything.

Oscar suggests that you check your foot position as you serve the ball, then back up accordingly. More analytical and probably more accurate if you care to check your own serve position.

Perhaps you could have someone mark for you where your foot lands when you serve, then step back accordingly?

Let us know which technique works best for you!

Here's Oscar's reply to Martin's question (May 6)

Dear Martin,
It is very funny that the guy John Frausto is coaching, which I think is his brother, does not point the left hand to the ball at all in U-tube once he is hitting the ball. He did it only in the beginning, when he was catching the ball with his hand. Once the ball was in play, he tracked it for a while with both hands on the racquet, which is what I recommend.
So, to answer your question, I don't recommend tracking the ball with the non-playing hand at all, then changing to fnding it wth the playing hand. This is the old "Chris Evert" technique, obsolete, very conventional, but still highly recommended by conventional coaching.
