Racquet Weight

Quite a few of my students play with racquets that I think are too heavy and grips that are too large.  It's a sensitive issue.  The player gets used to the weight of the racquet and may be reluctant to change (or maybe can't afford to change).  It feels more difficult for me to help them get more racquet speed and be quicker around the net when the racquet may be affecting their technique. 

I started with a wooden racquet and got good racquet speed since I had a whippy forehand and…

Ashaway MonoGut ZX Tennis String Review

I am a natural gut player for many reasons.  First I started playing with Gut cuz playing with Polyester gave me tennis elbow.  Sure it was a lot of reasons like bad form, hitting the ball late, muscling the ball etc but I feel pretty sure that the stiffness of my Babloat Pro Drive married with old Polyester strings did my arm in. 

Once Physical therapy was near completion, I started looking at what changes I could…

12 Months Post Herniation Back To Hitting Clean Winners

Looks like. I am recovered from my back problem although I still do many core workouts to keep extra fit. Playing again with no pain. Life is good again. I could not imagine never hitting a tennis ball again. I do prefer clay though as it is less demanding on your back and body overall. Or is it? Since the points last longer, less winners you are hitting more balls. So, you start getting tennis elbow or tendinitis there.Ugghhh. Just keep lifting some weights and exercise to keep playing.…

McKinney Tennis Center 1 Year Anniversary

Over the weekend, we had the McKinney Tennis Center's One Year Anniversary. It was a lot of fun. A bounce-house for the kids, face-painting, games, free food, live-music, raffles, etc. Lots of fun. The only bad thing was the rain. Not cool. I stuck around for the Fast-Serve competition. I was in the finalists with a 93 mph serve. Not bad for wet-flat balls! I bet I could have done better, but it was cold and nasty outside and we didn't…
