    Every piece of hardware that makes up a computer must work together in synchronicity for the computer to operate, and if you want to avoid making frequent runs to the Apple store, they must be maintained too. Likewise, every muscle, bone, tendon, and ligament in your body works together synchronistically with every shot you make and every serve you take on the tennis court. When your body is well maintained and you are in complete control, you stand to win more often than not. If you want to be successful as a professional tennis player, you must be healthy and fit. Your body must be nurtured and maintained. You must train properly, avoid injury, and understand the mechanics of every shot you make. This book is the only comprehensive source of all the physical skills required to compete as a professional tennis player. If you, your child, or your students are ready to stop taking risks when it comes to health and well-being and instead have the best shot at making it pro, then this book is for you.

    The awareness game

    Tennis is awareness. This study of technical, strategical, tactical, physical and mental awareness, as
    well as that of a person’s own personality, is the common theme of each chapter of this book and in every approach I take to coaching.
    Tennis exposes strengths and weaknesses. It is an equalizer, putting everyone on equal footing. On the court, there is no one you can ask for help.
    There is only you, your abilities and your experience in an unpredictable situation, where the only certainty is the awareness forged by experience.
    I took my inspiration from the Spanish Method of Luis Bruguera for who needs certainties and solid points, to the development of stances and podalic proprioceptivity of S. Sosa and A. Musulin, fundamental for a solid technique. Visual training analysis by postural and behavioral optometrist is
    the starting point to search motorial awareness. Chapters about psychomotor development analyze motor literacy building in which you can grasp that you can’t omit any letter. Criticalities in losses of balance accustom to adapt yourself to any situation E. Meyer affirms. American methodology by G. Jaramillo suggests the monothematic approach to automate learning.
    My work is also founded on my studies in Sport Science, following in-depth study and then, more importantly, on testing – first on myself and then on thousands of athletes that have truly brought “The game of awareness” to life.

    Tennis is not a game for the faint of heart. It is one of the few sports where a player must not only keep score but also act as both umpire and referee. A tennis match has no time clock, no halftime, no timeouts, no substitutions, and can last anywhere from thirty minutes to four hours. During that time, players may run over five miles and hit well over a thousand shots. In the end, both the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat rest solely upon the players’ shoulders. So what can a player do today to win more games than not?
    
    John Ruder relies on thirty-five years of coaching and teaching tennis to share a Tactical Point Control System that breaks the tennis point into four distinct phases, teaches competitors how to play in each phase, provides a checkpoint system that allows players to discover why they are winning or losing each point, and shares guidance on how to develop a game plan that enables players to better compete against opponents of all levels.
    
    Winning Tennis with the Tactical Point Control System shares a simple and effective game plan that allows tennis players to excel in the game and score points against their toughest opponents.
