Pressestimmen

"Oscar is a great coach. In a few days he helped me regain my strokes and my feel for the ball."-Bjorn Borg, 5 time Wimbledon Champion, 6 time French Open Champion."

Kurzbeschreibung

Can tennis really be this simple?

Just ask the dozens of world-class players who have made it to the top using Oscar Wegner’s groundbreaking approach. But if playing tennis isn’t so easy for you, if you never seem to play up to your potential, don’t blame yourself—blame the coach who taught you a lot of uselessly complex techniques. Play Better Tennis in 2 Hours is your guide to tennis as the pros play it—more intuitive, more fluid, and more fun. World-renowned tennis coach and ESPN commentator Oscar Wegner shows you how to focus your efforts on one thing—hitting the ball correctly. Your own natural athleticism will take care of everything else. Follow the simple drills in this power-packed handbook, and you’ll learn how to:

  • Move to the ball efficiently and fluidly
  • Stop worrying about foot position and stance
  • Hit every stroke harder and more accurately
  • Put a wicked topspin on your forehand
  • Master both one- and two-handed backhands
  • Combine control and power on your volleys
  • Put more speed and spin into your serve and more punch in your return

"Known and respected all around the world, Oscar has given us another great contribution to tennis with this book."—Gustavo Kuerten, three-time French Open champion

"Oscar has broken the mold, demystifying the modern tennis stroke. There's genius in his analysis of pro techniques—the dynamics of what the racquet does to the ball, how power and spin are added. He understands how top pros really stroke the ball, and always have, all the way back to Tilden."—Andy Rosenberg, Director for NBC Sports Wimbledon and French Open

Hi,

Great short book by Wegner. Clearly, he knows his business. I used to play Tennis for some 7 years with weekly trainings and club/league matches until age 18 ish. Recently my colleagues and friends ask me to play Tennis, but actually I play Golf nowadays, however couldn't resist the challenge.
I had this AHA-Effect, some neurons fired again and I remembered something about the technical side of the game. Wegner presents a modern approach, definitely the way it has to be played.

Great book if you want to refresh or if you play Tennis since years and finally come to the point to ask yourself: What am I doing? Is there a manual?

Wegner beschreibt die Biomechanik beim Tennis ausgehend von Beobachtungen der Profis. Seine Schlussfolgerungen kommen zum genauen Gegenteil dessen, was traditionell gelehrt wird.

Beispiele: "Beliebiges Anlaufen" des Balles anstatt irgendwelcher Sidestep Schemata, bewusst spätes Ausholen anstatt frühes, sehr kurzer Backswing anstatt langer Vorbereitung, langsam an den Ball - erst im Treffpunkt beschleunigen (Push) anstatt hartes Draufprügeln (hit "hard-hitter"), den Arm vor dem Körper "across" (quer) ziehen (schwingen / beschleunigen) anstatt dem Ball "auf seinem Pfad" mit dem Schläger folgen, open stance anstatt close stance wann immer es natürlich geht, volle Rotation des Körpers im Schlag anstatt einer linearen Bewegung usw.

Der Sinn besteht darin dem Spieler seine natürliche Bewegung und Herangehensweise an den Ball wieder nahe zu bringen.

Dadurch soll die Konzentration frei werden auf die drei zentralen Punkte: Finden des Balles (find), fühlen des Balles (feel) und volles durchschwingen (finish).

Alle Aspekte des Buches gefallen mir sehr gut. Habe es ausprobiert und empfinde nach 30 Jahren klassischer Schule diese Methode als deutlich überlegen - obwohl ich noch Konzentration aufwenden muss nicht in die alten, automatisierten Mechanismen zurück zu fallen. Das die biomechanischen Überlegungen richtig sind spürt man schnell und kann es in jedem Profi- Tennis Clip sich ansehen.

Das Buch ist für Anfänger wie Fortgeschrittene gedacht und geeignet mit jeweils untschiedlichen Drills. Bin vollauf zufrieden. Ein Wunder dass Wegners Methoden in Deutschland weitgehend unbekannt sind. Würde auch 6 Sterne geben :-)

In meinen Augen ein außerordentlich hilfreiches Buch mit deutlich praktischerem Ansatz als einige andere Tennis-Lehrbücher. Absolute Empfehlung für Anfänger und fortgeschrittene Spieler, die in bestimmten Bereichen ihres Spiels noch unausreichende Konstanz besitzen.

Excellent book, very handy especially for beginners and intermediates who are inconsistent in certain areas of their game

That is really one of the two best books on tennis I've come across (the other one is Frank Early's "Strokes that win"). Now 48, I began playing four years ago. I somehow felt that I needed very efficient instruction, so additionally to taking on a good pro, I've read a lot of books on tennis. I always come back to this gem. Although my knowledge of technique (not necssarly my application of it) has improved a lot, I always find some useful tips which I overlooked earlier. Very recommended at any stage of skills.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Destroy false miths! 13. Juni 2005
Von TenArch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Many people think tennis is a very difficult game to get to the level of enjoying. The biggest reason is that most coaches teach the wrong way to play. When we see the tennis tournaments in TV, pros are playing differently from what most coaches tell amateurs to do. Stance, running, backswing, arm bending, weight transfer, follow-thru finish... This is the point where Oscar Wegner focuses on, and I totally agree with him.

Amateur golfers are taught the very similar way to what pros are trained by. Compared to tennis lovers, Weekend golfers are well aware of theories of swing technics and physics.
The harder you are trained with wrong method, the hardlier you can advance to high quality tennis. I have played tennis for 34 years and I believe that the right concept is 70%, training is 30%.

I examined many books and videos on tennis and many of them gave me useful but functionally limited tips.
Oscar's book and videos destroyed the shell of miths and made this lovely sport more lovable.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Summary Start 6. Februar 2006
Von Rick Spell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I've played tennis for years and now play at a fairly high level. Always looking for the silver bullet to help my game I'm a sucker for any new books with a different angle. I would rate this book close to the tops of those but it still suffers from a significant issue: how to write a book for all levels of tennis.

The basic premise of this book is do what your body tells you and don't overanalyze or over-instruct. In this respect the book is very good and gives numerous examples including pros on why this works better. Also, it approaches the basic learning from this thought process. I would recommend this book highly for beginners as it has very simplistic initial tasks to help the beginner and they sound quite helpful.

Therefore I recommend this book but don't believe it to be the silver bullet that will make you a star.

4.0 von 5 Sternen If I started my tennis lesson this way...... 10. November 2006
Von Dawson Lin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is all about the so called Wegner method of learning modern tennis. You can see from the start that this method is somewhat different from the traditional way of learning tennis.

I myself started play tennis from 10 years old, trained all the way by the traditional method of course. I didn't play very good, just an average college level player. I have become a partime coach for some kids recent years which made me started to look for new coaching materials. And something I found making sense is this Wegner method.

From my traditional training, I doubt this book at first, maybe like a lot other readers who are trained by traditional methods. But after some thnking and trying, I found some new concept and the best of all....it works!!!

Not only can I use this on my teaching tennis to some great result on kids, my tennis had improved amazingly after I adjust my concept of play. And, I found out that I play more and more like the PROs...such as Federer!!! I remembered in the old days that I had asked my coach:" Why is Agasii amd Sampras played different from us, and different from what you taught us?..." I was scolded by the coach:" BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT AGASSI!!!" Now I know everyone can play the way the top pros play, it is just the concepts, not your physical diffenrence!!!

But, there are still some weakpoint in this book that makde me ranked it at a 4 stars rather than a 5 stars. The concepts are good but the description is a little misleading. Mr.Wegner tried to opposed the traditional way too much that sometimes he overexagerated his point. Which lead to some misunderstanding. For example, he keep exagerated the point " don't prepare too early"...whick is misleading in my point of view. What he is really trying to say is "prepare early, but do not take your racket back too early"......And if you try to practice by this misconcept, it will be a disaster...

If I started my tennis lessons this way(the correct concept way of course), I think maybe you would have heard my names in some grand slams, HAHAHA.....

Since I am too old now, I tried to teach some kids with these concepts , and now there are a lot of good and happy kid players in my team. I appreciate this book and this method. Think first and try this, you will like it!!!

I agree with Gustavo Kuerten, three-time french open champion.This book has given us another great contribution regarding to how to move to the ball efficiently and fluidly,stop worrying about foot position and stance,hit every stroke harder and more accurately, put a wicked topspin on your forehand, combine control and power on your volley and so on.

I have read the book two times!

The book works for beginners as well as advanced club players.It teaches the basics in a more natural way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Can it really be this simple? 14. Oktober 2006
Von Larry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It works for me. Just like a lot of enthusiasts I've purchase more than a fair amount of tennis media. I bought Nick Bollettieri's Tennis Handbook, and hated it. He goes into excruciating detail which I found difficult to conceptualize, consequently increasing my frustration levels.

Now here comes a book that's claiming to simplify the game to just a few basic concepts. How can this be? In addition, it also goes against the grain of every traditional coaching style. I found the book to be one of the most enjoyable reads of anything I'd read before, and it is simple!

Oscar's advice to play like the pros makes so much sense. After all looking at the best in the world should give good examples of what to do. Just make a tape of Andre Agassi hitting his backhand is probably one of the best instructional videos. (Oops he's retired) I still take occasional lessons for drill purposes. Interestingly, my tennis pro says he see a dramatic improvement in my game. If he only knew, and I still haven't told him.

I was so impressed with the book that I purchased Oscar's DVD series which I feel is a bargain. I'm no tennis pro, and I don't know if everything he says is correct. What I do know is that after years of frustration, in just a few hours (no not 2)my enjoyment of the game has increased significantly. I have more power and consistency. Best of all I can beat my son who is on the tennis team at school every once in a while.

I say give it a try. You have nothing to lose.
