Platelet Rich Plasma for Tennis Elbow -- Does It Work?

Check out this post I put on my personal blog shortly after getting a PRP injection for tennis elbow. A recurring tennis elbow that hadn't responded to other treatments - rest, accupuncture, graston, active release therapy, PT, you name it. PRP is much less invasive than elbow surgery and has a faster recovery time. 

I'm about six weeks out now and my arm is feeling a lot better. Still not cleared to return to the courts, but things are looking good.

Can you actually hit "through the ball" ?

The notion that we should hit “through” the ball has been around for decades, but what does it really mean? Can we really hit through the ball? How long is contact? With lighter racquets and faster racquet head speeds, is this instruction still relevant? If you’re curious to see if this instruction should be sent to your recycle bin, read on.

Tennis forced to face moment of truth

DURING a flamboyant career, French star Yannick Noah raised eyebrows with his athleticism, dare and flair on court.



But it is his accusations in a French newspaper last year alleging widespread doping among Spanish tennis players that, while inflaming tempers across the border, have some…

Two-racket Tennis "The Full-Body Workout"

Hello, I’m Prof. Don R. Mueller (aka the "Two Racket Guy"). I play an exciting form of tennis called Two-Racket Tennis.

Nalbandian’s Disqualification – and Five Others!

David Nalbandian’s disqualification from Sunday’s final of the AEGON Championships at Queen’s Club in London is, without question, one of the most unusual conclusions to a tennis match – and tennis tournament – in the history of the sport. Leading Marin Cilic 7-6, 3-4, the Argentine kicks a wooden advertising base surrounding the service linesman, breaking it and causing part of the sign to jam into the linesman’s shin, causing a bloody one-inch gash in his leg. Chair umpire Fergus Murphy…

How to go FROM GOOD TO GREAT in any sport, Part 3/3

How to go FROM GOOD TO GREAT, Part 3

As seen in the second article, the figure-8 body motion is undeniably what separates the great or natural athletes from the good ones. But, more importantly, anyone can learn this “magic move” and easily apply it to their sport or activity.

So how is it done - this figure-8?

Most of us need some help when it comes to…

Is "Racquet Back!" Still Relevant?

TennisOne's Joe Dinoffer says that the one-time joke on tennis pros used to be, “Racquet back, bend your knees, that’ll be twenty dollars please.” And I'm inclined to agree. At least in the old days, this was more or less the standard of teaching tennis. After all, it worked quite well for millions of players in the 1960s and '70s, didn't it?…

Free Tennis Fitness Program for Your Shoulders

Hi all, 

This is my first blog post at tennispolis, and I really enjoy this community:)

I will share with you a basic shoulder prevention program that every tennis player should do. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a pro player. It's important for every tennis player to do these exercises. Many tennis players feel pain in their shoulders, and that is because of poor technique or overuse of the shoulder. In other words, your rotator cuff muscles are weak and…

Tennis-Think of Your "Butt"

This article will not be too wordy but will have a lot of pictures.

When discussing the proper way to hit strokes many things are covered, however not too often where the correct alignment of the butt of the racquet should be. In many cases if the butt is correct the rest may follow suit. So, let’s begin with the backside- the butt.

When hitting the traditional, closed stance forehand in either the eastern or continental grip, the butt should be facing your back…

Tennis Parents Beware

Tennis-Parents Beware

When I was teaching in a club atmosphere I controlled the development of my students on a weekly basis, now teaching at a resort I don’t have that luxury, but the weather is great. Most of our patrons are here for long periods of time or back two to three times a year, so I do have input.

My concern is primarily with the juniors. I can’t tell you how many kids I work with have a solid baseline game but no clue how to hit a formidable serve, not to mention…

How to become a great server

This is a follow up, to my post on how to become a great returner. Most recreational players are enamored with the speed of fast serves. And I'll agree, it's fun to swing away on the first serve. But in terms of importance, it's consistency, placement and then power. Keep it in this order. Because you can't have a good serve without consistency.

I equate consistency with topspin. When you hit with topspin you are adding safety to your shot. With this in mind, it makes sense…
