This afternoon I received the IFT book Technique Development in Tennis Stroke Production
(2009), B. Elliott, M. Reid and M. Crespo
Suppliers Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. all list it as ‘out of stock’. No wonder I had not heard of this 2009 biomechanics book on tennis stroke techniques. I found it for sale at the ITF Store. $20 + $8 shipping. (ITF, get some book retailers!)
1 Talent Development: A Progressive Approach
2 Biomechanical and Anatomical Principles
3 'Heaviness' in Stroke Production
4 Variability an Integral Feature of Stroke Development
5 Service Mechanics
6 Forehand Mechanics (including return of serve)
7 Backhand Mechanics
8 Net Play Mechanics
9 Contemporary Coaching of Technique
Includes a section identifying the joint motions. Very readable. Overall and detailed perspectives. Extensive references for each chapter.
Best tennis book I've seen, a great reference book!
