Synopsis

This book looks inside the science of serves, nerves and on-court dominance. Thought provoking and original, Tennisology delves into the science, psychology and history of tennis, the world's most popular individual sport, in search of the factors that truly influence successful on-court play. Based on the latest research, statistics and analysis, Tennisology provides fascinating insights and observations on development, conditioning and performance. Readers will also discover how to apply the laws of physics to improve accuracy and consistency of shots and serves; how to structure training to minimise fatigue in lengthy matches; and how technology has affected the way the game is played, officiated and coached. From the historical roots of modern tennis to the physical attributes that define the game, Tennisology will captivate readers and make them think more about the game.
