Don't Lose Your Head

The tennis court seems very big to cover. Could that be an illusion? Is that really real, or a matter of viewpoint?If you are in the center of the baseline, it only takes three or four steps to get to the side line. A few more steps to get to the corner of the service or to a short ball.What matters, what can make…See More

The Magic of Calmly Waiting Mentally While Moving Fast and Furiously

Tennis seems to be a very fast sport, but I have a surprise for you:

IT IS NOT!

Let me explain.

From baseline to baseline, a groundstroke loses more than half its speed.  A forehand hit at 100 MPH at one baseline gets to the other baseline at around 40 MPH. One hit…

Dear Friends,I

have relocated from Florida to Southern California and have some exciting news in that regard:

GROUP CLINICS
First, I will be continuing to offer group clinics which have proven so popular around the country. Although I will be concentrating on the Southern California area initially, I will be available for clinics in other locations throughout the year. If you are interested in a group clinic near your place of residence, I suggest you contact one of our MTM Certified Coaches in your area who will then contact me.

If you would prefer to organize your own area clinic please contact us for details.

PRIVATE COACHING
For those who live in Southern California or who would like to travel to Los Angeles, I will be offering private coaching on a limited basis. If necessary, I can arrange for living quarters. Please e-mail me or Lucile if you would like to be considered for this opportunity.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE TRAINING
Beginning this year, I will initiate a program in which I will offer one-on-one, high-performance training with selected players and coaches. Applications are now being accepted for 2010. Initially, I will offer these in my place of residence in Encino, thereafter expanding to other facilities. (apply here)

I look forward to an amazing year and meeting many of you in person.

With my best regards,

Oscar Wegner
