Jack Barnaby was the long-time successful coach of tennis and squash at Harvard during the 50's and 60's. A true sportsman, he would first discuss a student's major and other aspects of his personality and character before ever mentioning tennis or squash because to him character and the ability to learn were paramount in taking on any athlete. While he did not belabor the obvious, he never ignored it either. For example, his book discusses the importance of "margins of error" in the sense of semi-circles in the court at each corner of the court and service boxes that should be the targets rather than "going for the lines." Sure he dispenses old-fashioned advice and was before the two-handed shots, but, hey, maybe that will be good. I notice that players today are rediscovering change of pace and other cerebral aspects of these wonderful games.
