Tennis For Beginners, Tomaz Mencinger

I recently was asked to review Tomaz Mencinger's new set of beginner instructional videos. After watching his videos, I was incredibly impressed with Tomaz's instruction. He teaches the modern game, but simplifies it by starting with the contact point and extension through the ball.
 
 
BOOKS
Tennis Strokes That Win, Frank Early

I think Tennis Strokes That Win is the best tennis book ever written. Early teaches us about a well timed "hip and shoulder rotation". About the "gears" of the swinging system. About creating body stretches and coiling up energy and creating elasticity. About balance and efficiency. He understands the paramount role of the BODY in tennis. While most everyone else is obsessed with the racket and racket head speed, Early takes a step back and sees how the BODY, in harmony with the racket, works to create and release energy into the ball. This book is a must-own. Pure brilliance.
