Tennisnerd Academy - Become a better tennis player

So here is something new! We introduce Tennisnerd Academy, a feature I will do together with tennis coaches and brothers Nik and Vijay Siwach who used to run their own academy in Germany and are now based in Malta. What tennis stroke or situation do you struggle with? Please comment and let us know!

The idea behind Tennisnerd academy is to give multiple solutions to common tennis problems. But we will also allow ourselves to stray a bit and do trick shots, get in-depth and discuss pro player techniques. This is, after all, for you (and us!) tennis nerds.

Tennisnerd Academy – We need your help!

Tennisnerd Academy - Become a better tennis player

The idea behind Tennisnerd Academy is to listen to YOU, the players out there and the issues you face when you are playing a tournament, or a practice match or just training with your friends. Do you want more spin on your forehand? Are you struggling with high balls? Do you want more kick on your second serve? We hope to give you tips and ideas on how to work on those shots. The aim is for you to become a better tennis player, but for that, we need your help. What are you struggling with? Please comment below and we will make a list of all the common issues we see and try to tackle them one by one.

As you might know, I am extremely passionate about tennis in general and becoming a better tennis player is one of my lifelong challenges. And it is not to achieve better tournament results, it is because I want my technique and movement to be as good as it possibly can. You might have a different goal with your tennis game. Maybe it is to beat your colleague at work? Win that club tournament or even to one day become a pro. We hope we can serve all different levels of tennis with a few nuggets of wisdom here and there.

Hi Jonas

I’m too tentative with the forehand and not sure if grip, too close to the ball are the problem. I find when concentrating on one aspect its easy to miss the others. Any suggestions ?

Hi Coaches
In addition I forgot to mention the forehands hit the net or lower more often.

I”d be interested in understanding tennis movement (for singles), where to recover to – and how to quickly anticipate opponents shots to get in the right position to respond. I don’t see any of the other online tennis channels talk about movement.

Also what rackets / strings / tensions are you all playing with – Jonas have you gone back to a head racket?

Question regarding technique:
How can you finish a ‘looping’ ball landing short on court to your backhand side using a single handed backhand?
I don’t want to stand at baseline and wait for the ball to come to waist level. It just gives more time to your opponent to recover.

Hi Ed, I like to know how I can serve hitting the target more down the middle

Hi Jonas,

As you know I hit my forehand too close to the body and too late. I struggle with the spacing cause I feel closer to the body means more control.
