Modern tennis racquets vary in length, weight, and head size. 21" to 26" is normally
a junior's length, while 27" or 27.5" are for stronger and taller adult players. Weights of a racquet also vary between 8 ounces unstrung and 12.5 ounces unstrung.
Great tennis footwork is the key to great tennis, which is a fact too many players overlook.
I see far too many coaches and club players concentrating -- and in fact wasting too much time and energy -- on one or two particular shots.
It doesn't matter how good the shot potentially is if you never get yourself into a good position to hit it.
Before you read on, just back up for a minute and think about this: What exactly happens when you play?
You hit a great return off a good wide serve by your opponent.
You are moving him all over the court when all of a sudden your opponent attacks by deciding to come to the net.

The Outsider: A Memoir
by Jimmy Connors
The Outsider is a no-holds-barred memoir by the original bad boy of tennis, Jimmy Connors.
Connors ignited the tennis boom in the 1970's with his aggressive style of play, turning his matches with John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, and Ivan Lendl into prizefights. But it was his prolonged dedication to his craft that won him the public’s adoration. He capped off one of the most remarkable runs in tennis history at the age of 39 when he reached the semifinals of the 1991 U.S. Open, competing against players half his age.
More than just the story of a tennis champion, The Outsider is the uncensored account of Connors' life, from his complicated relationship with his formidable mother and his storybook romance with tennis legend Chris Evert, to his battles with gambling and fidelity that threatened to derail his career and his long-lasting marriage to Playboy playmate Patti McGuire.
The Open Era in tennis began in April 1968, when the Grand Slam tournaments agreed to allow professional players to compete with amateurs.
