Tennis Student Before and After Video Analysis

Each tennis student I coach demonstrates technical and tactical improvement over time. We also incorporate footwork like the top pro tennis players. I met some of the junior students at local tennis tournaments. The adult players contacted me. The players (or their parents) asked me about my tennis coaching methods. I explained to them how I could help take their game to the next level.

They liked what they heard and were eager to do an evaluation lesson with me. During the one-hour lesson, I videotaped their current forehand, backhand, volley, and serve technique. Then I taught the student the forehand technique. The player saw the immediate results in swinging like the top pros.

The parents can sit in on the first few lessons, so they can understand the progression of training. I explain the stages of development that we use. We do quite a bit of shadowing in the lessons. Once the student achieves the correct form in the preparation, hitting zone, and ending, then we advance to feeding balls to the player.

If the student maintains the form perfectly while hitting a ball fed to him or her, then we move to the next stage of development. The footwork is introduced, and then the student hits while moving out of the comfort zone. This takes most of the hour, and then I videotape the “enhanced” forehand technique at the end of the lesson.

You can view the “before and after” video profiles of each tennis student at my YouTube tennis channel. Also, you can see the following students here - Savy, Annika, Rina, Ken, and Brian. Their forehand, backhand, volley, and serve is discussed using Dartfish video analysis where they are placed side by side a pro tennis player. The videos are short (start and stop the video as needed). Hopefully you can pick up some tennis tips for your own game by reading these profiles.

When I see your stroke I'll give you at least three technical tips to help you improve your form.
