Product Description

Tennis is one sport where most Players lack a full understanding of its rules and scoring during play. Many Singles and Doubles Players give away games they should have won because they were not sure or didn’t know the correct call or score during play. Players with an understanding of the rules always have the advantage with their ability to argue an issue during a match more knowledgably causing you to concede the point. Giving away even one point on a debated call can swing the momentum your opponent’s way resulting in your loosing the match!

With the help of USPTA Pro James Jensen’s new "Rules of Tennis" For Singles & Doubles DVD you will no longer be at a disadvantage during play! Pro Jensen personally takes you through the most important Singles and Doubles rules and scoring every player needs to know during match play including: the official size of the tennis court and net, racquets and balls required for play and illegal equipment that cannot be used, scoring of matches from ad and duce sides of the court, how a tie breaker is scored, ways of dealing with cheaters and bad calls, the many faults committed by Servers during play including foot faults and lets, how to call interference during play and the way a point in progress should be replayed, ways to correctly handle undecided calls where both teams cannot agree on what the score is or was, when to call in a third party during a match, rules for play at the net and common net faults often committed by players but never called, the eye opening rule for returning balls around net posts and not over the net as legal play, understanding tennis unwritten code of conduct, etiquette and sportsmanship, rules for switching sides during matches, how to determine the start of a match, rules of the pre match warp-up, rules for court positions of players which will surprise many, rules for hitting a ball twice before it goes over the net, and much more!

This 10 DVD Tennis series offers terrific insight into the game. I like Pro Jensen's teaching method of building your game from the ground up. He is always interesting and keeps your attention throughout each program. I really thought I had a decent game until I went through each of these DVDs. It was nothing but eye opening about how off my techniques really were. With the help of this set I've made numerous simple adjustments to my strokes, footwork and court strategies that have brought my game up many notches. For example the simple punch stroke as he calls it in the Volleys DVD has made me a much more consistent and accurate net player. This simple stroke keeps my ball in play where before I was constantly over swinging and hitting my Volleys out. This technique alone was worth the price of the series. I have easily come away with 5 or more game improving techniques from each DVD and when added up make for 50 plus improvements to my game. I am elated with my better play and all I can say is get the set and see for yourself how fast you can improve.

Jensen probably means well, but I found some of his suggestions to be negative to the sport. When teaching the return of serve in doubles for example, he suggests "pinching the box" in order to "throw your opponent off". He actually suggests you stand to receive the first serve of the match on the Deuce side, and have your partner who is standing on the Ad side of the court step in and return serve by surprise! Seriously? And I don't believe it's legal for your partner to sit on the sidelines and get a drink while your team is returning serve. I never want to hear a pro talk about how to "drive (an) opponent nuts" or about "messing around with their heads". These tactics are acceptable in certain circles I suppose, but not the example I would set for my students. This DVD was a bad purchase. When I expressed my dissatisfaction to the seller, they told me they'd never had a complaint before, and I would have to contact Amazon. I did, and Amazon quickly resolved the matter.
