Play Tennis with Passion

(Edgar Giffening)

This book is for every player who feels stuck and frustrated by lack of improvement. It is the perfect guide to understanding and developing every aspect of the game.

After writing Developing High Performance Tennis Players – a system to develop competitive players – I wanted to utilize my fifty years experience as a competitor, high performance coach, coaches’ coach and instructor of players of all ages and levels to write a practical book with the most effective strategies for anyone to improve and enjoy the game.

The book breaks tennis down into ten performance-determining factors that directly establish a player’s performance level: consistency, precision, footwork, perception and anticipation, variation, spin, ball speed, camouflage, mental skill and decision making


Developing High Performance Tennis Players

(Edgar Giffening)

This book is an attempt to answer the questions that I have pondered most of my life: What does it take to be a great tennis player and what is the most effective way to train.

It is a summary of 40 years in competitive tennis as a high performance player and coach of elite athletes. Within its pages you will find a player development system that guides coaches, players and parents through the intricacies of high performance tennis training.

It provides an in-depth analysis and explanation of every important aspect of the game and presents a clear and complete roadmap for anyone interested in truly understanding what it takes to excel in this marvelous sport.

Tennis Techniktraining

Tennis Techniktraining
by Richard Schönborn


Comment: "In depth explanation of the new approach to train technique based on the analyses of the physical and physiological demands of the tennisgame. It starts with the biomechanics principles, then the stages of learning, training and mastery and it ends with a chapter about drills for each phase along the stages. This book also includes a chapter about nutrition for optimal energy which is a little bit out of place in my opinion, but with useful information."
