Before developing an attack strategy for opponents, you need to develop a game plan centered on your strengths. Know Your Own Game sets up several match situations to assess your skills and determine the style you should play, and then it solidifies your game with key drills and games you can use in practice. It’s like hiring your own elite-level tennis coach!
Hosted by Paul Annacone, coach of Roger Federer and former coach of Pete Sampras and Tim Henman, TENNIS Magazine’s Tactical Tennis Series reveals the key strategies and tactics necessary for overcoming any type of opponent. Other DVDs in the series include Beat the Baseliner, Neutralize the Net-Rusher and Attack the All-Court Player.
Human Kinetics DVDs are coded for universal playback and can be played in all regions of the world.
