This book is very interesting for tennis players who have a scientific background. It may be a tad complicated for the average Joe tennis player. It explains the why hows and what to do's to give you the best chance of winning in tennis based on physics. I feel that if I had read this book when I was 12, 13, or 14 I would have been a much better tennis player. I don't think I would have been able to play pro successfully though. At the time I read this book (1992), this book was the most advanced book on tennis technique you could get.

Rose Of Winds
This is a very readable book which will appeal to tennis aficionados who want to understand the "why's" of tennis. It is not really a "how to do it" sort of book.
Sections in the book explain the physics of tennis strings and the tennis racket frame itself, as well as the physics of tennis strokes (e.g., why certain types of shots are more likely to go out or into the net).
Some of the subject matter has since been explored in greater detail by the online tennis community, but this book nevertheless remains very informative and relevant to tennis players and coaches who like to tinker with their equipment and their game.

This book is very interesting for tennis players who have a scientific background. It may be a tad complicated for the average Joe tennis player. It explains the why hows and what to do's to give you the best chance of winning in tennis based on physics. The book however is quite dated and talks about the oversized Prince racket as a new design and Borg as a current player. The new racket designs and strings have changed the modern game of tennis. I would have liked a more up to date version or at least a new chapter.

I read many (complete) parts of this book when I was 17, and 18 years of age. At the time, I still wanted to make a living playing tennis professionally. I never did so, after attaining a national ranking of no. 10 in my first year of Boys 18s in Portugal. I ranked 57 in the Eastern Tennis Association in my last year of Boys 16 (non-ITF rules).

This book was the most powerful "thing" that improved my game. I feel that if I had read this book when I was 12, 13, or 14 I would have been a much better tennis player. I don't think I would have been able to play pro successfully though.

At the time I read this book (1992), this book was the most advanced book on tennis technique you could get. The book was one step "higher" than—also a good contribution to anyone's game—High Tech Tennis by Groppel.

The data, analysis, and general advise/suggestions given in this book remain valid. Unless you are one of those guys who wrote the seminal textbook on Tennis Biomechanics (from some University in Germany), you are likely to gain from reading this book. Tennis Teachers/Instructors/Coaches, unless they have a degree in Kinesiology, or are conducting their own research will benefit greatly from the book.
Players, of all levels, including Professional Player level will also benefit, although they might find it too risky to implement the suggestions given in the book.

I did not read the entire book, but quickly reviewed it upon receiving it so please consider that my review is based on a quick glance. I anticipated the book would center on the lighter side of science and be aimed at helping the weekend tennis player make better on court decisions. It apperared to focus on tennis equipment with less information on science based strategy...although it did have some useful insights into the physical aspects of the game. It would have been a much better book if the information was presented from a tennis player's viewpoint with a little humor to lighten it up. Far too many graphs and charts when a good cartoon would have made the point much stand out much better.

There is so much misinformation in tennis! This book sorts through all the hype and confusion and gives true information on what makes a tennis ball go. From rackets to strings to strokes, this book shows what is important and what is not. For instance, why is it so hard to hit a hard shot from mid-court? Why do shots down the line go out so much? Should I serve hard or slow? How can I become more consistent at serving and groundstrokes? Should I crowd the net or stay back and get ready for a lob?
This book finally gives answers to these perplexing questions.
