THE BOOK CAME, THE BOOK CAME, THE BOOK CAME. Although there is isn't an invoice enclosed, it was sent "airmail" (Royal Mail) from Awesome Books Co. UK - I ordered from Amazon (New York?). The other rather strange twist is that it doesn't even have my last name on the label but the book itself and package look brand new so it hasn't been kicking around. So "airmail" from the UK to Florida took 13 days. OK, so right to page 22 having only flipped through the book. Server's partner position is exactly where I would place them - in the middle of the service box. Those that prefer stepping forward on serve, I'd start about a step back from center but still centered on service box (diagram 2.8). So, it would appear the advice her is that the server's partner should step at a 45 degree angle from initial position - one way or another. You know I'm not going to agree with that. Why would they automatically take a step toward the alley - I'll keep reading, must be for you calling for a wide serve. How many times does that happen and as net person your kinda hung out there and out of things. Not quite sure what diagram 2.7 is but checking. Lots of letter/number designations, dotted lines and arrows. Actually, I'm not sure what its all about even having read it - maybe its me or I'm tired because I'm having trouble following the logic here. I also didn't see the part where your coverage is better the closer you are to net - maybe that's in another section. Alright back to the words under "Whole Territory". Little bit on the confusing side here. If I'm server, I don't want partner standing in different locations depending on what type of serve I'm about to hit - kind of gives it away doesn't it? Second thing I don't want anyone doing is looking back after the ball has passed them - bad thing to do and probably the best way I know of to catch a ball in the face. But I guess the point here is that if I call for server to hit up the "T" than I should step toward center at a 45 degree angle and if I call for wide serve, I should step toward alley the same distance. Yeah, maybe - would depend on if the serve actually goes there and how wide the returner might be pulled off court, I might have to take several steps because returner could go down the line in back of me. So, I've got to mirror the returner, not exactly but somewhat. Now, just the comment, "Having communicated with server before every point to ascertain serve direction" - this in itself assumes a lot, including skill levels involved. Most Club players don't do this, maybe a few but most don't - I think they should but just watch them. Then it goes on to say "at the professional level, the net player wants to be as close to the net ...........". Goes on to say that most professional players don't lob on return of serve and so forth. Ever watch club players - this seems to be a favorite shot. OK, then it says as if in passing, club players can play anywhere they choose between the center of the box and the service line. So, we read all this including two diagrams and one sentence basically says, don't play attention to this if your a club player. My words, not his but for almost two pages one is led through this process and then you find out it only pertains to the professional game - little strange. I think I would have started out saying if your not a high level player, don't read this section because its not applicable to your game. For the average club player, this might spell disaster. Although I have every intention of reading this book from cover to cover, my initial impression is that its very different that what I've been working on. I've seen many books with similar looking diagrams (actually every tennis book seems to have them) but I'll have to do some reading. And by the way, I did find someone this morning that was familiar with Louis Cayer - said he had heard of him, "wasn't he a coach?" Guy is from Canada and a walking sports encyclopedia.
