Q. I’m looking for a DVD with technical tennis instruction to help develop my game. What would you recommend?”
From Tony S., Haddonfield, NJ
I recommend highly Pete Collins’ “Successful Doubles” (http://www.successfuldoubles.com/video.html). There are three video CDs and whether you are a doubles player or not, there’s plenty there about playing tennis to be of much help.
Another CD is Brett Hobden’s “Understanding Modern Tennis” (www.modernTennis.com).
From Skip, Tallahassee, FL
Without a doubt, Oscar Wegner has one of the best DVD’s out there. His techniques are easy to understand and implement. I was amazed how by just making some simple adjustments I was able to change the level of my game. The hardest part for me is forgetting the bad habits I learned from the people who taught tennis the “conventional” way.
From Phil, Briarcliff Manor, NY
I have the ideal solution to your request. Watch every finals match that Federer has played in the last three years that you can get your hands on for form and tactics. Watch his strokes in slo-mo and stop action, frame by frame to analyze what he does. Emulate everything.
