5. Develop a backup plan:
Champions have a way of turning a losing match situation around, and one of the ways of doing that is by switching strategy. No use sticking to your most “comfortable” game…Continue
Yup, it happened. We got 90 games in on Sunday. My legs still feel it, but I'm starting to recover rather painlessly, which is nice.
The score doesn't truly matter. I lost 77-13 this time. It's to be expected. A 4.0/4.5 player with insane touch and great angles will mop the court with me regularly(a low 3.5 learning how to construct a real game), but since I lost 78-9 last time, I gave up one less game and scored four more than last time, so I can put that in my accomplishment…Continue
This majestic creature lives near the Dutch Fork Tennis Center, Irmo, SC. And actually, he (or she) spends alot of it's time hunting in my backyard, where I took this picture. Obviously, The animal shows no fear when approached by humans, for it allowed me to get to within a few feet from it as I snapped the photo.…Continue

Soccer moms are quite efficient when it comes to arranging, scheduling, multiple events and commitments…Continue

The best way is almost always word of mouth. If you do not have that opportunity and tennis is a new adventure to you, take trial lessons from 3 different coaches within your vicinity and see what works for you. Most clubs and coaches have promo rates, ask. Some let you sit in on a group lesson and get a hang of it. Does it sounds a little like the dating scene, absolutely and the concept is quite similar, if you are going to invest time, money, and sweat, you deserve a good result out of…Continue

I’ve written quite a few articles on the sport of tennis but none of them really took off like the “Playing Your First Tournament” series that I did on www.tennis4you.com. Some of the local kids will be playing their first tournaments this school year so I thought I’d put this series up there for you to check out and enjoy!
Whether you are a 10-year-old junior or a 50-year-old woman who’s just started playing…Continue

Don’t tell me it includes Motrin®, Tylenol® or any number of other pain relievers. If so, we have got to talk.
For years I have been watching many of my USTA league teammates and other tennis players routinely pop a few of these seemingly harmless little pills just before a match. I can understand the need to cover up those aches and pains from tennis elbow, aching knees and the like, but the whole “ignorance is bliss” mantra can be really short lived…Continue
