The ATP & WTA Backhand Comparison

Christophe Delavaut has taken an in-depth look at the difference in forehand technique employed by players on the ATP Tour and the WTA Tour. But what about the backhand? Well, something similar is taking place on the backhand side as well. The men's game has gotten even faster and more physical. This has caused a need to be much quicker to the ball, and in effect imparted a necessary technical change to the two-handed topspin backhand groundstroke. Just like on the forehand side, the men seem to be leading the way in this evolution.

Creating Independent Athletes

W. Timothy Gallwey’s, book the “Inner Game of Tennis” questioned the traditional way of coaching and in doing so inspired coaches and players to the idea that the subconscious mind is so powerful that you can allow pupils to find learning for themselves. It is now widely accepted that when people teach themselves and they have ownership of information they improve a lot faster. Giving responsibility and forcing pupils to think and come up with answers for themselves is more difficult at the start, long-term it pays dividends. David Sammel

Tennis Specific Workout

In the modern game, touring pros must have the strength and conditioning to survive five grueling sets, sometimes under oppressive conditions. Coach and fitness expert, Mark Gellard, has trained many top juniors and touring pros. Here he outlines a comprehensive daily tennis specific training program designed to get you into top playing condition. Everyone can benefit from this program, just remember to work at your own pace.

Set Your Priorities

Serve, return of serve, forehand groundstroke, backhand groundstroke, forehand volley, backhand volley, overhead, lob, and dropshot — these are the basic shots in tennis. And within these categories there are more options that clarify spin, placement, balance, etc. Now the big question that begs to be asked is, “Which shots do you hit most frequently in a match?” Since we all have limited time to practice and improve, it only makes sense that prioritizing our practices based on what shots we hit most often will help us improve our competitive results most quickly. — Joe Dinoffer
