Improving Tennis Strokes

Attorney Fred A. Schwartz, partner in charge at the Boca Raton office of Kopelowitz Ostrow Firm, PA, maintains an active lifestyle outside of the office. A fan of sports, Fred A. Schwartz plays tennis at least twice a week.

Increasing serving power improves overall tennis performance by making the ball more difficult for opponents to hit. Medicine ball overhead slams represent a great way of improving upper body power, and adding just two sets into regular practice goes a long way. Improving stroke production across different angles makes players more comfortable with the various situations that may arise during a game. If a specific stroke is difficult, such as hitting high balls on the backhand, focusing largely on those areas during practice will make a difference.

Moving closer or farther away from the net not only allows players to hit the ball to a greater variety of areas on the court – it often disrupts an opponent’s rhythm, making the shot more difficult to return. This allows for a decrease in the time it takes for players to score, which in turn keeps games from lasting too long. Learning to stay calm, handle distractions, and focus on the ball improves the mental aspects of tennis.
