Tennis “Check” Booklet:
This booklet allows a coach to track players and opponents’ performances by “checking” boxes. Use the Notes pages for common shot patterns opponents used, what to do different the next time and what the player can take from the match. Compare your analysis with your player and use as a learning tool. Reference notes and match check points (strengths, weaknesses, etc.) before your next match!

Focus on the Positive
I was talking with Coach Tom Lang from the DC area and he made a good point about a coachable moment. One of his players had just lost the first set badly and Coach Lang heads to the fence.

This is a great coaching strategy for a couple of reasons. First, you do not want your player to become too analytical trying to figure out what is going wrong, at least not during a match. Second by focusing on something positive you can build on one or two things going into the next set. Players will also increase their energy level by being positive. Here are some of drills/games to use from to help emphasize staying positive and gaining some momentum;
