Features:

1) How an Injury can Help Your Tennis Game

Many times a problem can turn into a good thing. I bruised my lower back
recently by incorrectly doing a Deadlift. It has been taking me a long time
to heal my back. I decided to play tennis the Monday of our so-called
blizzard even though I was not fully recovered.

I decided to take it easy and only hit second serves. This I thought might
be easier on my back. (Though it turned out I was quite sore the next day
anyway.) The key here is that I limited myself to only one serve, my second
serve slice.

It turned out to really work to my advantage. This serve is very easy for me
to get in. Plus the fact that I was only doing that serve reduced my options
and allowed me to focus on mastering one kind of serve. I didn't have to do
a hard flat, kick or even a hard slice serve. So I went from four choices of
a basic serve down to one basic choice. I only hit my Super Slice second
serve.

For some reason this made me very calm and therefore confident. I was
breathing deeply when going to serve. The serve was very effective. My
doubles competition was complaining about how un-hittable my serve was. At
one point we won about 10 straight points on my serve. They never broke my
serve, even though in the last game they had us done love 40.

One of our opponents thought I was bragging when I told them I only used my
second serve. But I was just amazed at how effective just one slice serve
could be. There are two keys to this serve. One is that my second serve had
a very heavy spin and was curving quite a bit to the left. The speed was
moderately fast, not even close to my top speed serve. The other key was
good placement. Since I felt confident in getting my serve in, my placement
got better.

There are 4 major factors in serving; placement, depth, spin and speed. I
combined 3 of those factors very well in one type of serve that was easy to
get in. What makes Pete Sampras so un-hittable is that he combines all the
factors at once. Also all of Pete's serves are hit in almost the exact same
manner. He just changes a couple of things a millisecond before striking the
ball. That makes him very relaxed because he doesn't have to constantly
adjust to doing a different kind of serve.

To play better, pick only one way for hitting each stroke and stick to it as
much as possible. I did this same technique many years ago in a tournament.
I played much better than the previous tournament because my game was
simplified and I was able to get into a groove and then later the zone.

In fact I just realized something. The times I felt I have gotten into the
Zone were times when I was very relaxed. This may be a key to continuous
Peak Performance. I'll try to do relaxation exercises before every match and
see how that affects my playing ability in the future. Good luck with your
tennis games. I hope this tip was helpful.

I've put up more useful articles at my website. There are a total of 15
articles to help you improve your tennis game. Go to
http://supertennis1.bizland.com/superlearningtips.htm I've also rearranged
the articles into two sections:

1. Peak Performance Reports for the Mental Game
2. Stroke Mechanics Articles

2) Improve Your Game by Working Out

I've been exercising a lot lately with my self-devised no-equipment workout.
I've put on extra muscle all over my body. Being stronger and more fit has
improved my tennis game even though I haven't been playing that much. My
serve seems to have increased power as well as my groundstrokes. My
self-confidence levels on the tennis court have gone way up. I can't quite
explain this self-confidence thing except that it has naturally occurred
after doing my strength program. For some reason I expect to be competitive
against players I used to be awed by. Iím also faster which is very
important for tennis.

You can easily improve your speed by running sprints once or twice per week.
I do it when I go jogging. During the jog I'll decide to sprint about 75 to
100 yards. Then I'll walk until I have recovered my breath and continue
jogging. I do these sprints just 3 times during my jog and I have gotten a
noticeable increase in my court coverage.

3) Free set of Wilson PolyLast 16g String to the first person who emails me

I received a free set of string from Wilson to test out. I want one of you
to play test it. The string is designed for heavy string breakers. So if you
break your strings at least once per month you may be interested in trying
this string out. Polyester strings last a real long time and they have a
fairly nice feel to them. Many players in Europe have been using Polyester
strings for years. The first person I receive an email from can get their
racquet strung with Wilson PolyLast string. All you'll have to do is pay for
the service charge, which is $12 or $10 if you are a frequent stringing
customer. The normal price for this stringing would be $23.

To visit my online Tennis Pro Shop go to
http://supertennis1.bizland.com/proshop.htm There you can find the strings,
grips, accessories and racquets that I carry. As well as my drop off
locations, referral program and a log of equipment and string tensions the
Pros use.

========================================================

STRINGING WITH PRIDE: I take a lot of pride in stringing your racquets. I
have two stringing certifications from the United States Racquet Stringers
Association and 17 years stringing experience. If you come to me, you can
have confidence in your racquet being properly strung and the racquet's
performance being maximized. I've strung over 24,000 racquets in my day and
have a very large and loyal following in the East Brunswick area. If you
ever have any problem or question with a racquet I've strung, feel free to
contact me and I'll gladly do my best to make sure you are satisfied.

I hope you enjoyed and benefited from this update. Please email me if you
have any suggestions as to how I can make it more useful for you. I'm here
to serve you.

Haeske
