Newsletter Article May - June 2017


This is a fun time of the year for professional tennis.  The second Grand Slam of the year, the French Open begins May 29th.  The French Open (played in Paris) is known for its slow red clay court which defiantly suits the more consistent players.  As opposed to playing on grass courts (like Wimbledon with begins July 3rd) that are much faster as the ball skids off the grass, which helps big servers and power players win quicker points.  If you watch the French Open, you'll see players using controlled slides into the hitting zone, heavy topspin groundstrokes and standing well behind the baseline to handle spins.  It's not my best surface but I can appreciate the skills, fitness, patience and mental toughness to stay on court for a best of 5 set match which could last as long as 7 hours.

I had a fun question put to me by one of the members at the club. The club celebrates when a member hits a hole in one, as they should, it’s a big deal and a rear feat. I was asked, what thing in tennis is the same as a hole in one at golf?  I’ve had trouble thinking of one as golf is played against the course and tennis is played against another player.  4 aces in a game, a golden set (winning every point in a set, 24 points to 0 points) etc. I thought these were good but it depends as you could be playing someone that’s not at your level. The best answer will receive a free hour long private tennis lesson. If you have any thoughts, please email me at  

One Reason to Play Tennis
