Christophe Delavaut resumes his role as Dr Frankenstein in building the consummate forehand return. And his model for this is Andy Murray because Andy does just about everything right.

Windows of Acceptance — TennisOne Classic

Dr. Howard Brody died last week. Professor Brody was a member the International Tennis Federation Technical Commission, the USTA Sports Science Committee, and one of the earliest contributors to TennisOne.

Understanding Timing for Better Tennis

In comedy, it is said that “Timing is everything.” Tennis is no different, except at the end of a well-timed winning shot, only one player is laughing. It is also said that tennis can be a game of inches. But far more important is that tennis is a game of fractions of a second! Yes, things happen fast on a tennis court, anyone who has ever faced a 120 mph serve can attest to that. — Joe Dinoffer
