  • Momentum Guidelines

    By Tyler Tarnasky | In Tennis | on June 22, 2017

    1.) It takes two points to have momentum. If you simply win one point and then lose the next point, you have no momentum. Focus on winning two points in a row. The game of tennis is designed around 2 point swings. Win the first two points of the game, up 30-0, now you need another two points to finish the game. Deuce…win two points, win the game.

    2.) If you have just won a point; play high % the following point.

    3.) If you have just lost a point; play more aggressive, attack, or run a quick pressure play.

    4.) If you have the momentum, it is better to play a little faster. If you do not have the momentum, it is better to slow things down and take your time (within the rules!).

    5.) If something is working — keep doing it. If something is not working — mix it up.

    6.) Momentum serving : (1) If you have just broken serve, under no circumstances, should you double fault to start your service game. It is best to use a high % spin first serve to ensure you do not. (2) If you have just hit an ace, under no circumstances, should you double fault the next point. It is best to use a high % spin first serve to ensure you do not.

    7.) If you are up 40-0, even if you opponent has just made 3 unforced errors, play aggressive, attack, or run a quick pressure play. Your opponent will likely play their best at 0-40. If they don’t — you win the game anyways. However, if they do, it will take a winning shot to close out the game. Also, this creates a relaxed offensive mentality rather than a tight defensive mentality which is usually behind 40-0 leads lost.

    8.) Be flexible. These are guidelines. Sometimes though you need to rely on instincts and the flow of the match rather than rigid rules

  • How to Come From Behind

    By Tyler Tarnasky | In Tennis | on May 18, 2017

    1.) Never give up on yourself. Never accept defeat. Keep giving your 100% best effort. If you give up on yourself, even 1%, you will hurt your chances significantly of coming back. Positive self-talk can help you maintain great fight.

    2.) Be fit enough to go the distance. A comeback usually requires times and energy. You want your fitness level to be a huge confidence boost for your moral. Knowing you have what it takes physically is critical. If fitness is an issue for you, get fitter. If your already fit enough…get fitter.

    3.) Remember this fact: you can never run out of time. You always have enough time to comeback, that is part of what makes tennis great. Keep reminding yourself, the match is not over.

    4.) Embrace the situation. You are facing a big deficit. It is certainly not ideal, but everyone takes a tremendous amount of pride in situations that they have come back from in the past. Embrace the opportunity ahead of you.

    5.) Strategy wise — the obvious thought is “change up” what you are doing, however, sometimes when you go away from your primary strategies and tactics you only become a worse version of yourself. Sometimes it is better to go even more in on your primary strategy and tactics. Win or go down with your best stuff.
