The USA was looking to show high progress in years to come.
Regrettably, mandatory 10 and under coaching courses, now sponsored by USTA, USPTA, and PTR, are back to conventional lore. So are beginner instructions which will throw USA tennis back into the ice age: early preparation, close stance, racquet back, stepping into the ball and following towards the target before finishing across are basic musts.
In contrast, Modern Tennis Methodology, well liked overseas, promotes open stance, stalking the ball, windshield wiper and hitting pulling across. Natural, topspin tennis, well adjusted to the body and to the needs of those who want to excel in the sport.
Choose how you start and you will be a winner or a write off.
Furthermore, if you are a parent intending to help your children into tennis, you better learn about this.
