In the last 30 years of tennis expansion and popularity, there have been numerous "instruction" books to satisfy every flavor of TV tennis idol tennis fandom requires. Perhaps you are one who acquired those "hip" strokes of your favorite player and you can compete reasonably well. But when you slip into sloppiness or erratic play,and age perhaps catches up with you, it will be time to repair those instantly-acquired strokes that have caused you arm or body pain of some kind. You will look for a clinic, perhaps. Well, the clinic you seek is here in this lodestone of tennis instruction, over 40 years of instruction condensed into nuggets of simplicity a child of 10 will swallow with wonderment and enthusiasm.I can attest to the simple techniques that this master of instruction devised and put in this book. Camp kids progressed from beginners to fine club players in 3 weeks. A master instructor, like Van Der Meer, is one who sees the complexities and breaks them down into digestible, productive results.He does this both for the young and the adult player normally learning-resistant. These techniques work, the drills enhance your athleticism and elevate your play measurably. If you absorb the lessons of this master and you reinforce them in competitive play, you will realize you have achieved the classic style of stroke production that never strains the arms, legs or back. Think Gonzales, Smith, Ashe and Federer. All played pain-free with fluid stokes like those illustrated throughout the book. A non-playing parent could teach anyone to be a competitive player with this book without any additional aid.
