The Story of the Big Fish in the Little Pond

” If one really wishes to be master of an art or sport, technical knowledge of it is not enough”, from Zen in the Art of Archery by Eugen Herrigel

The story of the big fish in the little pond is an all too common one, and more often than not has a negative impact on many players; especially for those juniors who experience a degree of national or international success and recognition during their early developmental years.  During my career I have worked…

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

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