The Tennis Schema clarifies how the tennis forehand and one-handed backhand work. It gives you the necessary information and instructions to play consistently well, to find control. Finally, you will understand what the pros do differently. With some effort and commitment, it will help you improve your tennis and take it to the next level. The Tennis Schema is especially useful for adult players. Its approach is not only comprehensible but practicable, as you need not spend your life on the court doing drills. It explains the fundamentals of tennis in a way that makes them replicable as (slow motion) videos never are.

Most importantly, it is a schema, which makes it applicable to all strokes. You need not first learn many details for the forehand and then just as many different details for the backhand. Instead, you will realize that principles are at work and you will see how the same principles apply to different strokes, including the one-handed backhand. That is the beauty of this approach. It gives you insights into tennis beyond what seemed possible. The Tennis Schema gives you a view from above on tennis technique, as it will let you understand stroke production, even if you only watch tennis or comment on tennis.

I am quite aware that I use terms you haven't heard of, as I invented them. Terms like forearm angles. Without understanding forearm angles in tennis, you can never grasp tennis. Then, the part of your wrist in any tennis-stroke will remain a mystery to you. These concepts I explain in much detail in my book. You have to be open for something new to welcome my writing on tennis as it leads you out of general tennis jargon. You will enter a new conceptual world in tennis. One that holds on the court. This could never come about just by filming the strokes, then showing them in super slow-motion, and talking a little. Writing, in contrast, can be very stringent; at least it is with the earnest writer.

Where writing is demanding, reading is educating, and watching videos is distracting.

If you believe in books and if you want to learn and understand tennis, then this one is for you. The world nowadays is mostly interested in TV, videos and games, as it seems. For that reason, I try to address some people who appreciate books, especially those books that have evolved over a long time. My book is a work coming from the heart, which you will be able to sense. Certainly, it is no mechanical production to make fast money in some niche of the book market. That I could never do anyway, as writing for me is inside out. Often, I surprise myself.

This book does just one thing: it gives you the truth on tennis in a way that holds. Most videos and classes are so much more expensive and, often, lead you astray. The Tennis schema is a lifetime's work.

The first page inside the book explains the cover design to you. Before you judge and believe it does not mean anything, wait, read and experiment. The cover design is not random but hints at a secret to build your stroke correctly.
