This includes the serve to the forehand and backhand, playing to the net and, most importantly, holding one's nerve against any opponent and winning the match. The book features comprehensive coverage of ATP and WTA tours and gives a full explanation as to how their ranking system works. The book features photographs, illustrations and court diagrams for proper technique, practice and conditioning elements. It also includes tips on the right diet, exercise, flexibility and attaining the levels of mental and physical fitness required to get the level of tennis the reader wishes to obtain.
