Reviews - What do customers think about Training Exercises for Competitive Tennis?

Methodical Tennis - The German Way  Jul 19, 2000
Another German tennis manual but highly practical and easy to apply on court. Drills are classified into singles (20), doubles (10), team (31) and fitness (11)categories.

But then some will question - Is this another of those predictable run-yourself-crazy drillbooks that's guaranteed to give you intensive/extensive breath shortages with hardly any demands of your creative domains?

The book stands out for most of its use of simple language, particularly from pages 18-175. It stands out because the author has taken special pains to share much of his coaching and playing experience through illustrating very clearly the specific aims of each basic or complex exercise.

There are numerous iconic diagrams to explain the sometimes confusing abbreviations generously sprinkled throughout. Most importantly, technical drills are not interwoven too much with fitness/movement drills such that early fatique comes on to interfere with skill absorption - as is the case with the old drills. The main drills also contain at least 3-4 variations to the theme.

I have found that these drills have greatly improved the strategical and tactical awareness of my younger players when they are in tight situations - a far cry from a previously simplistic let's-outslug-each-other approach. However, I have found that introducing no more than 2-3 new drills at each training session will suffice for optimal inculcation.

I must confess that in the process of drilling my students I have also imbibed mentally quite a bit of the strategical objectives of these drills. The action has made me more adept at recognising my tennis mistakes and devising remedies for my personal game.

My complain(s)is the small print and book format makes reference to it on court quite difficult. Can the author/publisher think about a larger format of print with also colour?
