...best (DVDs) I've ever seen. Kids and touring pros alike should memorize them, word by word, image by image. -- Andres Gomez, 1990 French Open Champion
Twice the power with half the effort! Improved ball control! Less chance of injury! More effective use of spin! A wider range of shot-making possibilities! These are among the many benefits of modern forehand technique developed by touring pros benefits that can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels and all ages from 3 to 83+. The great irony is that, with very few exceptions, modern tennis technique is rarely taught, or taught well. The old, traditional technique of the 1970s still persists in most tennis teaching around the world, especially at the recreational level.
