Tennis Fashion Fixation

Are you more concerned with how you look than how you play?  Do you follow tennis to see what the players are wearing and not whether they're winning?  Have you spent way more on your tennis outfits than on your tennis lessons?  If so, you've finally found the group for you . . .See More

"Maria Sharapova at the Vanity Fair Oscars party.  How did I not see this earlier?  She's wearing an Amanda Wakeley dress and carrying an Alexander McQueen purse.  Stunning."

Target Your Tennis Serve

Posted on October 5, 2010 at 6:59am 0 Comments

Placing your serve is critical in doubles. If you are hitting short weak serves or serves to your opponent's strong side, you leave your partner vulnerable to attack at the net or you allow your opponent to control the points off the return.



You can remedy this by choosing a target and working on keeping your serve deep in the service box (except for the wide serve which should be placed shorter in the box). You will begin to control and win more points if you have good placement of… Continue

Tennis Makes You Smarter!

You know that tennis is great exercise. That's part of the reason you're playing, right? But did you know that tennis is good for your brain too? Tennis makes you smarter!

In fact, the brain uses about 25 percent of the oxygen that you take in. Because exercise… Continue

Last week I played tennis where temperatures started out in the (get ready for this) 40's! Here in Houston that is FREEEEEZZZZING! OK, I know. That's not really very cold at all. In fact, on both mornings, it went from being a little chilly at the beginning of each match to being pretty darn warm by the end. But I live in Texas because I like hot weather and the thought of wearing tights under a tennis skirt - Yuck! Not the tennis fashion statement I'm… Continue

How To Be A Great Tennis Partner

Posted on November 13, 2009 at 7:00am 0 Comments

I play for four different tennis teams right now. That means, with shuffling line-ups and subs, I may have four different partners each week. In the course of a month, I can theoretically be partnered with sixteen different people!



So, each month, I may be learning how to partner and achieve success with sixteen different people. And, sixteen different people may be sizing me up, considering my tennis game, deciding if I am the kind of partner they ever want to play with… Continue
