My two favorite ideas that help tennis players engage their legs more...
Unfortunately, tennis coaches' and online instructions on how to use your legs correctly to help you generate more power and spin for your forehands and backhands often boil down to “bend your knees.” However, bending your knees is just half the answer, and, in my experience, it's much better to ...

Very interesting tennis website that suggest a perfect racket based on your playing style, rating, age and other factors.
TennisRacket.me has developed a proprietary algorithm that allows you to find a tennis racket perfectly suited for your playing style in under 2 minutes.

Sharing one of my favorite drills to improve the timing of the split step
A split step is the foundation of footwork in tennis. It requires very precise timing in relation to the moment when your opponent hits the ball. That's why it's quite challenging to master. But if you time the split step well, it can help you move much quicker off the mark because your legs ...

How to correct the most common problem on the backhand slice stroke
The backhand slice stroke in tennis is a great stroke to have to change the rhythm of the game and to play effective, neutralizing shots from defensive situations. But often times, the slice shot floats too much and therefore bounces too high with not enough speed, which gives your opponent enough time to set up …

Simple tips for finding the right grip in tennis
Having a correct grip for your forehand and backhand strokes in tennis is the key to hitting your shots with consistency and power. An incorrect grip will always hold you back in some way when you're hitting your strokes as it will force you to improvise in some way instead of allowing your body ...

Get the upper hand as a returner when you receive short second serves in tennis
Wouldn't it be great if you could crush those short second serves that so invitingly sit up in front of you? You may be of two minds, not being sure what to do because when you go for a winner you make too many mistakes, but when you don't attack them you play back to your opponent and waste an ...

The serve is tricky and here's why...
Have you ever wondered why the serve in tennis is so difficult? When you compare the forehands and backhands of recreational tennis players with the pros' technique, there isn't a huge difference, but when it comes to serves, the difference is very obvious. While there are many reasons why the ...

A simple drill you can apply to all strokes that helps you hit a cleaner ball.
There’s a very common mistake that happens basically on all tennis strokes that robs you of the maximum power you can produce. It also prevents you from hitting a clean ball and therefore prevents you from having very consistent strokes. This mistake is orienting towards the target too early. This involves: turning towards the intended …

The right way to adding power to your strokes is the long term approach...
Hitting with more power in tennis comes with very obvious benefits: you’re hitting winners, forcing mistakes and generally giving your opponent very little time to react. But having powerful strokes that are at the same time technically sound and therefore consistent is not something you can develop very quickly. The wrong way of developing power …

Story
Tagline
A tennis coach and internet entrepreneur on a journey of freedom.
Introduction
Played volleyball for 16 years semi-professionally, won the National Championships in 2000, then focused 100% on tennis coaching which I was doing since 1996.

In 2005 started my first tennis website (with Site Build It) called Tennis Mind Game.

Moved to Thailand to teach in Tennis Academy of Asia and worked there 18 months.

I started other websites and eventually started earning enough money to quit my job and work only for myself. I now work from home on my websites, travel to Thailand often, teach tennis and help other people achieve financial freedom with the power of the Internet.

The service at the reception and their organization is horrible. I arrived on check in at 16.30 which is two and half hours after the check-in time (14.00) and yet my room was still not ready. I still had to wait in the lobby 15 minutes. They suggested I take advantage of the free drink voucher at the bar which I did but there was no bartender for 5 minutes - so I couldn't order my drink. At the check-out there was only one lady in front of me checking in. First, nobody paid attention to me when I stood there with my bags ready to check out. There was no "Good morning, sir, we'll ready for you in a minute..." or something like that. I was not acknowledged and my time was not precious to the receptionist - her name was Karolina. There was another man working with her behing the desk and he also didn't acknowledge me or say anything. After a few minutes waiting I heard that the lady who was checking in was asking all sorts of things like - how far is it to the town, how will I get there, which bus must I take and so on. The receptionist was explaining all that, took out a map, showing some directions, checked out some things on Google while no one said anything to me, they didn't care about my time and in some way at least let me know that they are aware of the time that I am wasting there. After about 10 minutes I wawed my card and told them that I am looking to check out but Karolina just nodded without any apology for taking so much of my time. I have been in hundreds of hotels as I am a tennis coach and I travel a lot - and I know that explaining directions and all the little details is NOT a part of check-in WHEN you have other guests waiting - especially if you realize that the person asking questions will probably ask more questions and spend a lot of time there. The receptionist should have excused to the lady and asked her to wait a few minutes or come later so that she could process my check-out. But that didn't happen so after 15 minutes of waiting for Karolina to explain all the little details of travel to this lady I finally was able to start my check out. The worst thing is that once I mentioned to Karolina that I feel that my time was not precious to them, that I was not acknowledged, that no one made any attempt to try and expedite the process, she defended all the claims. She argued with me that she did notice me - but of course she didn't say anything and acknowledge me and let me know that my time is important to them too. She argued that giving detailed directions and explaining every little details to that lady IS a part of check-in. I told her that I waited 15 minutes and she argued that it was less - and so on. So there was total lack of respect for my time and total lack of respect when addressing a guest. I can also mention that at breakfast I ordered an omelette and the cook forgot about it. So I waited 15 minutes and then ordered it again - but at least the cook (female) apologized quite a few times for it and I felt ok - everyone of course makes mistakes. But of course Karolina would never acknowledge that. My recommendation - stay away from Hotel Phoenix, their staff is not trained and they don't really care about the time and well being of their guests. You're also more than 20 minutes of drive from the city center if you drive your car and more than 40 minutes if you take the bus.
