Overview

A tennis tune-up for players of all skill levels.

From the serve, ground strokes and volleys to the smashes, lobs and drop shots, this unique coaching manual illustrates each stroke from five angles: front, back, left, right and above. In this all-around skills guide, tennis pro John Littleford delivers expert guidance to identify accurate positioning of feet, body and the racquet -- just like having a personal pro watching, correcting and coaching every swing.

Tennis Strokes and Tactics features step-by-step analysis and multi-angle photography that illustrates how to:

  • Track the ball to the racquet head using hand-eye coordination
  • Maintain correct posture and good footwork
  • Establish correct and comfortable grips
  • Hit a forehand with great topspin
  • Master the secrets of the backhand -- one-handed and two-handed
  • Control the ball with power on volleys
  • Serve with more speed, spin and deception
  • Return serve with more punch and accuracy
  • Use the lob and drop shot as devastating offensive weapons
  • Master an accurate and powerful overhead smash
  • Move across the court more fluidly for greater efficiency.

Tennis Strokes and Tactics also includes a comprehensive section on effective tactics and strategies for singles and doubles play. Using this innovative guide, tennis players of any level will improve their game.
