In this revised and expanded edition he shows players of all levels how to apply the same scientific principles used on the court by all of the great players, regardless of their styles of execution. The book is easy to read, fully illustrated and includes instructional cues that highlight the concepts presented for quick reference during practice.

Using research based on kinetics, a branch of science that studies the effects of force upon the motion of a material body, this title seeks to help advanced tennis players improve their game. Chapters on footwork, backhand, ball spin, volleys, serve, and overhead include both short practical drills and technical explanations of why a particular movement will aid performance. The author also covers the use of sports science concepts to determine the appropriate tennis equipment for individual needs. This second edition (the first was entitled Tennis for Advanced Players, Human Kinetics Pub., 1984) contains two additional chapters, both repetitive. Readers will find an understanding of human body mechanics necessary to best utilize the book. This book is recommended for advanced collections only.
