To be able to play today’s game at an advanced level, you need to incorporate some or all of these advanced techniques into your tennis game. Tennis has evolved so much into a power and speed game, but having an all-around game will still produce the best results day in and day out. Try to learn and master these tools – Topspin groundstrokes; Continental grip for volleys; Continental to Eastern backhand grip for serves; topspin/kick 2nd serve; open stance forehand and backhand; scissors kick on deep overheads; inside-out forehand; swinging topspin mid-court volley; drop shot; slice backhand.
Sounds simple!! Just remember what tennis legend Bill Tilden said: “It takes at least 5 years to make a tennis player; at least 10 years to make a champion.”
