The premier tennis organization in the world offers the latest ideas on how to learn and play the game, illuminated in easy-to-follow sequences as demonstrated by the world's best players. Debunking the theory that tennis is a difficult sport to learn, this book details how to play the game before it even teaches how to actually hit the ball, based on the growing practice of starting beginners in a game, rather than on exercises and drills. An invaluable resource for players and coaches, the book will offer step-by-step instructions on learning and mastering the strokes, illustrated from start to finish by the groundbreaking high-speed photography compiled by the USTA coaching department. All strokes will be demonstrated with photographs of the world's top players: Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, Venus and Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, and many more. The book also offers information about equipment, practice drills, tournament play, playing styles, and general fitness, as well as an analysis of the top players and their games, making the book as important for those who watch tennis as it is for those who play.
