295 bucks seems kinda steep!
$195 for the basic package. It's $295 for the package and access to the forum, an additional chart and some other things.

One of the most horrible footwork I have ever seen in my life. Please do yourself a favour and tape some pro games and watch what they r doing.

Yah that was kind of weird- are you actually suppose to hit that way in matches?

No, it teaches you how to remain balanced, but I think it is terrible, there`s no weight transfer. There might be some benefit, but I think there are better solutions. If you don`t have balance, you probably won`t ever be good at tennis, and this kind of exercises will not help you if you are not talented. And if you are talented, you do not need it.

The footwork example is good, we had a discussion about this in a recent thread about a month ago. It is where you recover after contact and as you finish, instead of recovering during or after your finish.

But that is a lot of money!

Footwork drills, jump rope, hexagon drills, etc.. will help, I think this guy is trying to help you to be more efficient with your movement more than anything. Let us know if you buy it, how it worked out for you.
