Product Description

In this valuable lesson USPTA Tennis Pro James Jensen teaches you all the techniques needed for developing a killer flat, slice and kick serve. When performed properly the serve can become your biggest point winning weapon in a match. Many players serves are weak and inconsistent because they lack correct body mechanics for striking the ball properly, putting the plalyer at a great disadvantage during competition. In this sensational DVD Pro James Jensen will instantly improve your serves power, speed and accuracy by teaching all the techniques needed to execute a winning flat, slice or kick serve consistently throughout play regardless of your level. The flat serve is heavy and flat, the slice has tremedous side spin to run away from your opponent or into their body, the kick serve hits and twists causing a difficult return. The techniques taught to master these killer serves include proper serve grips, correct height and placement of ball toss, the 4 stages of the serves: 1. preparation 2. loading 3. exploding or uncoiling 4. follow through, how to use your legs and upper body to get optimum power and accuracy, the three target zones, how to develop consistent accuracy, reading your opponent and what target to aim for during a match, ways to follow your serve in to set up volleys, how to perform your second serve as a winner, serve strategy during singles and doubles play, training drills for developing the ultimate serve and much, much more! By applying the techniques in this important DVD your serve will be an unstoppable weapon in club and tournament play. Order Now!

The skills and ideas demonstrated in this video constitute basically complete and correct knowledge for the low to mid-level player. So, a junior player twelve and under or fourteen and under might very well profit from seeing these skills demonstrated properly. In the same way, a very low level club player might correct his form in this way. The author claims to have simplified this material so that everyone can do it. His claim is true, but misleading. He has simplified it so much that a part of the effectiveness is eliminated.

The author is quite powerfully built in the upper body. He has very strong shoulders and arms, good hand-eye coordination, and quite excellent timing through the ball. For these reasons, he can consistently hit quite a powerful and crisp serve with sub-optimal body mechanics. In actual fact, people of less powerful natural build who emulated his form very exactly could well end up with a shoulder as sore as poor Pammy Shriver's. His own body mechanics put a lot of stress on the shoulder. While he says quite clearly that the leg action is important, he under-demonstrates the details of coordinating the legs. He himself does not use the legs as effectively as he could and should, at least in these demonstrations.

The DVD is under produced. While of a little better quality than your home video cam, it is basically a filming of a chatty pseudo-lesson the author is giving. There is a lot of repetitive chat ("brush Up the back of the ball, UP the back of the ball"). The skills as he demonstrates them would make him a good low level college player or a decent middle of the road club player. They would not let him threaten to play at a high spot on a good college team (e.g. Pepperdine or UCLA).

This DVD helped my Serve more than the lessons I have taken trying to improve it. Taking lessons can be frustrating because some coaches are not great teachers and I have walked away wondering, what did he say? Not so with this DVD from Pro James Jensen. He is an exceptional teacher and I quickly understood every thing he taught on improving my Serve. The improvements I made with my slice and kick serves were immediate and I was able to Ace more than I ever have before in my weekly club matches. All I can say is this is a great learning tool and I will be purchasing more from Coach Jensen's Tennis DVD series.

I bought this hoping the instruction would offer something different than the Nick Bolleteri and Vick Braden videos I have, but mostly it was just Mr. Jensen serving himself.... over and over and over again. I found nothing instructive nor entertaining in this video. I may try watching again at some point, but compared to the other videos I seen at least 15 times I really don't think it is worth the time or the money.

You could read Jensen's words and get just as much from it as you can from this DVD. There are no slow motion videos of top players. There is very little demonstration of actual strokes. Jensen just talks in front of the camera, holding his racquet which he shadow swings from time to time to emphasize a point. There are much better instruction videos out there. Don't waste you money on this one.

I first started the Pro Tennis Lessons with the Ultimate backhand a while back. The disc quality was poor. The "dirty disc" light flashed on my dvd player. I never have this problem with any of my dvds. Tried to clean it several time and was able to view the dvd for a few mins. I really like the coach but watching the dvd was a torture. The disc was so dirty that the pictures kept freezing on me. I finally had to give up. Two months later I bought the Ultimate Serve dvd and guess what...exact same problem..."dirty disc". I played hundreds of dvds with my dvd player and NEVER have this problem. I really would like to watch Coach Jensen but I don't think it's going to happen with the Pro Tennis series.
