Mastering The Volley

Even though Roger Federer didn't win the US Open 2015, he came very close. How did he do this at the age of 34? I think one factor is his newly developed net game. Roger has finally embraced the volley, thanks to his coach (since Dec 2013) Stefan Edberg, holder of 6 grand slam singles titles and king of the volley. By volleying more, Roger has surprised his opponents, conserved his energy, and reduced his risk of injury. His more aggressive net-game strategy catapulted the Swiss to the final, in which he gave Djokovic a run for his money. The beauty of the perfect volley is its simplicity, less is more.

If you're a tennis coach in London, or know any tennis coaches in London, let me know and I'll add more to this directory.

Fitness Training for Tennis

You need to focus on sports-specific training to boost your tennis performance, and you also need to correct the left/right physical imbalances that result from playing a lot of tennis. If tennis is the only physical activity you get, you'll develop a very imbalanced upper body. Don't rely on tennis alone for your fitness. As well as being a personal trainer in London, I'm a keen tennis player, so fitness training for tennis is one of my specialities.

Injury Prevention

Like all raquet sports, tennis puts great demand on the joints. So it's worth strengthening the muscles round your main joints to reduce the risk of injury. Muscles take the strain away from the joint, and act as a shock-absorber. For instance, to avoid tennis elbow, it's worth strengthening your arm muscles. That said, tennis elbow often results from poor technique in your tennis strokes, so strong muscles won't guarantee you'll be free from tennis elbow. You need to learn good tennis stroke technique too, and good footwork so you're in the right place at the right time.

Without doubt the best example of good tennis technique is Roger Federer, and it's no coincidence that he suffers far less injury than the other top players.

For shoulder strength, make sure you strengthen all three heads of the shoulder muscle: the anterior/posterior/lateral heads. And don't forget your rotator cuff, small stabilising muscles that get injured easily. Ensure also that you have good flexibility in the shoulders, so you can perform a full range of movement.

The other key joint to focus on is the knees. Weak calf/hamstring/quad muscles can lead to injury in the knee joint, so devote some time each week to strengthening these three muscle groups. And beware - the hamstrings are particularly prone to being too tight, so stretch your hamstrings for a good minute per stretch. Women who wear high heels are prone to tightness in the calf muscles, so if this is you, make sure you spend a bit of extra time stretching your calf muscles.

The most notorious tennis injury is tennis elbow. The most common cause is bad technique, so get some coaching! Also known as lateral elbow tendonitis, it's most common among ages 35-50, particularly if you play frequently. And your risk increases if you have a single-handed backhand. The forearm muscles that connect at the outside of the elbow are the source of pain, and the first thing to do is to take a break from tennis until the inflammation has subsided. Here are some things to avoid:

-playing with wet or heavy balls
-using a raquet with wrong sized grip, or a heavy raquet
-poor footwork, not rotating body properly, not following through smoothly, over-hitting

Core Strength

A strong core is essential to withstand all the dynamic movement and sudden changes of direction that tennis throws at you. Make sure you strengthen your rectus abdominus (the classic six-pack) and also your obliques and transverse abdominus (these two abdominal muscles are often neglected). The best exercise for the transverse abdominus, the deepest abdominal muscle, is the plank.

Your lower back muscles are the other key element of core strength. Check out my YouTube channel (Fitness4London)for lower back exercises.

The most neglected aspect of core strength is your glutes, or bum muscles. Lunging is the best exercise to develop strong glutes.

Speed Training

Once your core is strong, it's time to turn to speed training, so you reach the oncoming ball faster, and get yourself back into optimum position faster, as soon as you've hit the ball. You can use the tennis court for speed drills, running from the baseline to the net, running sideways along the baseline, running backwards, there's no end to the variety you can devise.
