I’ve played and coached is many countries around the world and I can tell you that the junior tennis culture in US is very different from the rest of them. It seems like technology is taking a firm hold of this upcoming generation and it seems like their attention span is ever decreasing and their respect for the elders and hard work slowly deteriorates. There is a quite widespread “fast-food” and entitlement mindset that I’m noticing around. A lot of kids expect…Continue

How can players start mastering how, to play the mental game.
Because that is the only game, that is being played in competition.
It is also a topic that....many coaches mention to their players about,but then don't spend enough time teaching it to them.
I can't give you the whole concept here in this post.
But,I will give you an outline of it and then you can get the rest,on the right hand…Continue

We may not be in Melbourne, Australia playing tennis and perhaps we have not been able to play at Wimbledon or Roland Garros but we have seen our share of interesting tennis courts.
Some we love and some we hate, some are fast, some are slow, some are lucky and some are cursed. Each tennis court is unique and has its own special beauty.

If anybody cared the last three matches went like this... I won a real lights out battle in the impending darkness at the Northwestern University outdoor courts. To quote the Ljubman, "spend some Euros and get some lights!" That match was on a sweltering hot Friday evening. On a cold gray Sunday morning I lost a real rock'em sock'em battle with a guy who I have always had big hitting wars. Fast forward to the next week to face my retriever nemesis and clearly was not ready to suffer as he…Continue

It was a slow burn.
I was having a great time hitting with my good friend one Saturday afternoon.
We were ripping cross court forehands, down the line backhands, and having so much fun doing it.
Well, that day STARTED very fun.
It ended a very different way.
It came time, like it usually does, to play a set.
Isn't it interesting how there can be a…

You're playing doubles on a beautiful friday evening. As the sun sets, you feel a cool breeze comforting your skin after a rigorous opening to your match.
It's the final round of a local tournament, and you're at 5-4, up a set, and your partner is serving at match point!
He cracks a POWERFUL serve right down the T.
Your opponent scrambles to frame the ball back…

Finally, I'm up against a familiar opponent!Our history dates back to last season where he beat me in three sets in the spring and we played to a draw in fall. Third set was a victim of the rain.
His game similar to mine. The big difference is he does not get get as many free points off the serve as I do and I'm not as good from the baseline as he is. His forehand can misfire at times, so the plan was to force the ball to that side and let the unforced errors pile up
Now that I played my last match it was time to play my first match. The place was a little closer to my house so it felt like a true home match. Temp was about 45 degrees Fahrenheit, another great spring day in Chicago. It was about 5 pm so I was not sure if we would get the match in under natural light.
My opponent looked to be someone who had been bumped down so I was wary of higher level play. Once again he was a opponent with a one handed backhand and a big forehand.…Continue
