Insider Tennis Strategies 

Being able to hit a good shot in tennis is one thing. Being able to win a match is quite another. So much of the game is about conditions that may be beyond your control – the fitness and form of your opponent, the surface of the court, and certainly the weather conditions will all play into how a match goes. If you are not hitting winners in a match the way you were hitting them on the practice court, it is not because you have become deficient in some way. It is because you need to up your match game.

Learn How To Play Tennis 

Tennis is a sport that is much greater than the sum of its parts. Look at the players who win major tournaments – your Rafael Nadals, Roger Federers and the like – and what you will notice about them is that, individually, their shots are not so much better than the other players on the tour. Oh, they are good shots – no doubt about that – but what these players have is more than just technical ability. They win games for more reasons than pure stroke play. They win because they know what shot to play at what time, and how to beat an opponent before they even get to the court.

Win More Tennis Matches 

Playing tennis is a fine way to spend time, and if you get really good at it you may even find you can make a bit of money, but what many people seem to get stuck on is the aspect of match play. You can have a dynamite forehand when you are practising with friends, you can have a drop volley to rival John McEnroe's, but unless you have the match play abilities you will never get far in competitive tennis. This is a problem that occurs in all sports. We can be good in isolation, in practice, but when it comes to the crunch, sometimes it doesn't happen for us.
