About the Author

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) is the governing body for tennis in the United States. Its mission is to promote and develop the growth of tennis. The USTA's membership includes more than 500,000 individuals and nearly 6,500 organizations, including schools, park and recreation departments, community tennis associations, and tennis clubs.The USTA is widely known as the owner and operator of the U.S. Open Championships, one of the four Grand Slam tournaments in worldwide tennis competition. It also sponsors amateur tennis competition for players of all ages and abilities. More than 5 million schoolchildren are introduced to tennis each year through USTA school programs, and opportunities for further instruction and play are provided by a menu of USTA entry-level programs.A full range of player development and sport-science programs is offered at Player Development Headquarters in Key Biscayne, Florida, at 120 Area Training Centers throughout the country, and in communities (through a network of Local Excellence Training Programs). In addition, the USTA emphasizes coaching education and development through an ambitious offering of coaching seminars, workshops, and conferences. It works closely with the two major organizations certifying coaches--the U.S. Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) and the U.S. Professional Tennis Registry (USPTR)--together accounting for more than 18,000 members.Ron Woods, director of player development for the USTA, wrote "Tennis Tactics" with the help of the USTA sport-science staff and coaches. Woods is responsible for planning and implementing programs that help players--from beginners to veterans in the professional ranks--achieve their maximum potential.Woods is also a senior staff member for the USTA committees in charge of player development, sport science, Olympic tennis, junior competition, and collegiate tennis. A former member of the International Tennis Federation's Coaches Commission, he serves on the coaching committee of the U.S. Olympic Committee. The USPTA honored him as 1982 National Coach of the Year and designated him a Master Professional in 1984. Ron is also an honorary member of the USPTR.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A great book, as a coach I use it regularly for putting together my lesson plans. There are various drills covering the important situations you will find yourself in a match ranging from beginner to professional. However any professional drill can easily be simplified and applied to a player of a lesser standard.
As a player, I would describe it as the equivilent of learning the openings of chess or another way is tennis by numbers. Knowing the drills throughly you will know where you put the ball without thinking about it and your opponents likely reply. I'm learning to improve my strategy and have experienced an improvement in my performence
