analyzing stroke errors
passing a written exam that covers a wide range of tennis topics, including teaching, playing, equipment, and history
Uhh, I've done it.. Many of my lessons have done it over the years. Again, passing the test, or even doing well on the test certainly does not prove much in terms of developing games. Suresh, do you work for the USTA? You seem like the prototype, which is a middle aged hack who has never actually been on the court, but seems to think they have all the answers.
