Seizing Control with Coach Cvjetkovic

To win tennis matches, you need to win tennis points. And those points often depend on the very first shot: the serve. But consistency and strategy extend beyond just powerful serves. Here’s how to play points that set you up for victory: 

1. Serve with Precision 

  • Aim for high first-serve percentages and avoid double faults
  • Use the serve to set up an attacking position. 
  • Practice serving drills regularly to develop consistency and accuracy. 

2. Minimize Unforced Errors 

  • Relentlessly focus on reducing unforced errors, especially early in matches and games. 
  • Warm up effectively to establish rhythm and shot control. 
  • Emphasize consistency in practice sessions. 

3. Attack with Confidence 

  • Look for opportunities to hit winners or use aggressive shots to create easy follow-through. 
  • Capitalize on opponents’ weak returns and play with confidence. 

4. Adapt to Different Styles of Play 

  • Be prepared to adjust your strategy based on your opponent’s tendencies. 
  • Experiment with different formats (like next gen sets) to challenge yourself and work on various skills. 

5. Start Strong, Finish Stronger 

  • Recognize the importance of starting points and games with focus and precision. 
  • Maintain concentration and intensity throughout each set, from first point to last. 
  • Embrace the work required to improve your tennis game and embrace every opportunity to learn and grow.
