How to improve your tennis game by watching TV!

Watch More TV and Improve Your Tennis Game: What You Can Learn from Your Favourite Players

While practice on the court should always come first, you can continue to improve your game by doing something we all love: watching tv.

Of course, that old episode of Friends isn’t what we’re talking about.

Watching the best of the best play on the court, however, is well worth your time. In fact, there’s an awful lot you can learn by being attentive to certain players’ unique strengths. Below are a few notable players and what you should watch for while they take the court. 

Caroline Wozniacki

This 27-year-old Danish phenom is lethal on the court, especially when she strikes one of her signature backhands. Studying her down-the-line shot is well-worth your time. 

Venus Williams

Of course you’ve heard of her. And while there’s little not to enjoy watching while she plays, the technique behind her powerful serve and her movement as she approaches her forehand are worthy of several “rewind” moments.

Karolina Pliskova

Known in the tennis world as “The Serve,” the Czech “Ace Queen” should be studied for her serve, obviously, but also for her impressive ability to utilize her groundstrokes on all surfaces, from clay to grass.

Garbine Muguruza

This Spanish player has taken the tennis world by storm, beating both Williams sisters in Grand Slam championships. How’d she do it? Her aggressiveness on the court gives her a huge advantage, mentally and physically.

Jelena Ostapenko

Climbing the rankings (she’s currently at number 6) in the Women’s Tennis Association, Jelena is often studied for her risk-taking moves and her lightning-fast forehand. Both are reasons enough to tune in to any of her matches this year.
