1.0 out of 5 stars Way Too Much Talking and No Visualization November 3, 2007
I own too many sets of tennis tapes, including Tennis 2000, Vic Braden, Tom Avery, Tony Roche and others. James Jensen's DVDs are undoubtedly the worst. I have watched four of the ten Pro Tennis DVDs so far. They all have one thing in common. Jensen talks and talks and talks, standing in front of the camera with a racquet in his hand which he shadow swings through empty air. His monologue is soooooo redundant. How many ways and times can he restate the same basic concepts? No one knows.

Personally, I like the Tennis 2000 series. Tennis 2000 utilizes regular and slow motion video of pro players. Along with the visualization, Tennis 2000 analyzes the form and stroke of each player. It adds scientific studies of biomechanics. In the Consistent Tennis Wins series, Tom Avery demonstrates everything he says on the court while hitting shots with a student or another player. His strokes are not as advanced as the Tennis 2000 strokes, but even Avery's tapes are infinitely better than the James Jensen's series. Jensen barely hits a tennis ball in hours of painful instruction.

I read the stellar reviews of the Jensen's Pro Tennis series and I seriously wonder who is writing these. But, hey, don't take my word. Buy just one of the DVDs. If you can stay awake though 90 minutes of Jensen's monologue then pluck down your 300 bucks for the whole set and buy yourself some sleeping pills. You probably need them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uninspired December 25, 2008
By Honibee
Verified Purchase
These dvds offer basically solid, if uninspired, advice. They are most useful to players ranging from just beyond absolute beginner to intermediate level (through 3.0 level, maybe 3.5 for the more advanced ones).

That said, there is little use of slow motion and no use of stop-action, and you only see Jensen (occasionally with his partner Gary) - it would have been more interesting and instructive to see a variety of players with different styles hit strokes, and to see the strokes in stop action, with narration going over the strokes. Jensen jabbers way to much, often saying nothing. For example, in the backhand dvd, he claims repeatedly that he will show you the way to determine whether a one- or two- handed backhand is best for you. You wait and wait - until finally he gives his advice: "Try both and see which one is more comfortable for you" Duh! With all that talking, he never gives any real advice or discussion on the topic. A two-handed backhand is a more powerful shot when you don't have to stretch for the ball, and is probably easier to learn and better for children. A one-hander has more range and is usually more comfortable hitting slices and backhands at the net.

With the good and bad, there is also the ugly. There are several glowing reviews for people claiming to be 4.0 or 4.5 (advanced) players. These reviews are almost surely phoney - there is absolutely nothing in these dvds that would be useful to anyone at that level. For example, according to ussearch, noone by the name of "Dean Esterberg" lives in Davenport WA, nor is he listed in the USTA records, even though he claims to be "a certified 4.5 player"

5.0 out of 5 stars Game, Set and Match! May 29, 2006
By JohnD
I've never written a review before, but felt compelled to do so after reading daveparker's petty and cynical assessment of a product he has never even seen. Dave must be fun to play tennis with...

I'm from London in the UK (so no, I am not the father/son/brother/agent of Jensen) and we have no tennis instructional DVD's of this high quality - maybe that's why we are no good at tennis!

I bought the 10 DVD box set and as you Americans like to say, it's AWESOME. Top quality production and very clear instruction - I watch them consistently before and after matches.

I've saved a small fortune on tennis coaching fees with these DVD's, but I'd still recommend having the occasional private tennis lesson, to ensure that you personally are implementing all of Jensen's instructions correctly.

Good luck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent DVDs - Worth looking at August 15, 2006
By Zugzy
I have seen 9 of the 10 DVDs (I skipped the Doubles dvd) and I will say that overall that I liked them. Mr. Jensen is very good at verbally explaining the techniques of each shot. My main complaint is that I wish he used more video slow motion shots to explain each shot and less talking. Sometimes the talking is a bit too much.... but you can't say that he does not try hammer a point home, at least.

Even with that said, I will say that the DVDs are worth the purchase. He does give good advice and has the kind of enthusiastic personality that makes him a nice instructor to learn from.

My tennis has greatly improved in just few weeks. James Jensen deserves a 10. It is his repetition and his clarity of information that makes his presentation work so well. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
