Learn about the 9 steps any tennis player must take to improve and win more matches!

Foundation

Introduction to running tennis plays that cater to your strengths, attack your opponent’s weaknesses, and help you avoid making so many mistakes. Here, we teach things like: “Sword & Shield”, Roger Federer’s imaginary line rule, when and why to hit inside & outside groundstrokes, when you should change the direction of the ball, and much more.

We spend hours and hours on the court practicing forehands and backhands so we can get better at rallying from the baseline. Analytics prove that rallying is a proven failed strategy. Everybody can grind and dig a trench running side-to-side. Make rallying part of your game – not your entire game. To find the winner of a match don’t look for the most winners; look for the least errors.

Making your opponent uncomfortable is the bottom line. There are eight ways to force an error. The first four have to do with the court; five and six deal with the ball; seven is about you, and eight is about rushing your opponent.

Everyone has a weakness. Cutting the baseline up into A B C D locations is the best way to find your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses from the baseline. The natural angles of the game will also be covered.

7 Shot Tennis™ is the best approach to visualizing and remembering what happens during tennis points and for analyzing how to improve your game using that information. As a game plan for player development, we’ll focus on purposeful and deliberate practice. 

Data proves that points in tennis are a lot shorter than we think. Your ability to win these (shorter) points gives you the greatest chance to win matches. Here, we uncover the primary and secondary patterns of play best suited to your game.

How you hit a ball matters, but where you hit the ball matters more. Match analytics confirms that the player who plays on, around, or inside the baseline is at an advantage over their deeper-playing opponent. Here we dig into “climbing the ladder” – the ability to take continuous small steps forward to improve court position up to and inside the baseline.

Different strategies based on the point score in a game. How important is it to win the first point of the game? What are the best patterns to play to run at love-all or breakpoint? What’s the most important score line within a game? We’ll also dig into the percentages of winning games based on certain scorelines.

Court Positioning

In order to recover to the right position, you need to take a few things into consideration: depth and direction of your shot, and the position and tendencies of your opponent. There’s also geometry involved. We show you.

Serve

We cut the services boxes into eight equal areas, starting with the deuce court out wide and moving left across the court. A common serve location language allows us to be on the same page when learning primary and secondary serve plays.

Serving to the opponent’s forehand or backhand is predicated on 8 serve factors used as “filters” to make smarter decisions with serve locations.

Match analytics tells us that there’s about a 50/50 chance of servers still holding even when down 15-40. Even when you’re down 0-40, remember, you’re the one hitting the serve – arguably the biggest weapon in the game.

Arguably, the biggest weapon we have. It’s not practiced nearly enough. Can you get 6 out of 10 first serves in when and where you need it? We dive into why power and location are both critical and how to practice 1st serves with focus and intention.

You’re only as good as your 2nd serve. Do you practice it with focus and intention? We’ll dive into why it’s so important and teach you how to use it as a weapon.

The serve should be thought of as a multi-faceted weapon that can deliver an ace, force a return error, or develop into a tactic called Serve + 1 – where the serve and the first shot after the serve are considered one unit. We teach Serve +1 plays for both 1st and 2nd serves.

When you see the data behind serve and volley, you’ll wonder why we don’t see it more in tennis. Serve and volleying can make your opponent uncomfortable and get them out of their rhythm. Reason enough to investigate.

Return

Did you know your percentage of winning a point skyrocket returning 2nd serves vs. 1st serves? We address the #1 thing you should start doing with your returns, and the best place to hit them. We teach Return +1 (where the return and the first shot after the return are considered one unit) plays for both 1st and 2nd serve returns.

We also dig into:

  • Return Situations
  • Returning 1st Serves
  • Returning 2nd Serves
  • Break Points
  • Return Approach
  • Return Winner

Run Around Forehand

Data shows that forehands rule the world of tennis. The run around forehand is your biggest weapon from the back of the court. We discuss the advantages of turning more would-be backhands into forehands, and how it is the biggest advantage you have to win more matches. Here you learn how to become a Forehand Hunter™.

Backhand Down the Line

It’s been said, “Your forehand buys you the million-dollar house. Your backhand down the line puts the Ferrari in the driveway.” We dig into when, why, and how to hit your backhand consistently down the line.

Approach Shot

Probably the most misunderstood shot in the game. Match analytics and stats are very clear RE: approaching – it delivers the second highest winning percentage of any tactic other than getting your first serve in. Is it part of your game? Why not?

Patterns of Play

We continue to build your tennis play book with patterns the most successful players in the world use. Learn and run to win more matches!

Video Analysis, Match Tagging & Charting

We believe technology should be incorporated into the process of becoming a better tennis player. That’s why we use video for analyzing technique, strategy, and tactics. We also will get matches tagged and charted so we know what to address on the practice court. Performance on the match court should dictate what you work on in practice.
