Our tennis pros can help you improve your game during your stay, and so can these tips from some of the tennis world’s most famous players.

The key to mastering tennis fundamentals and swinging like the pros not only involves a lot of practice, it involves practice without a racket. Don’t believe us? Check out these tips from tennis’ most famous sisters:

The key to a serve is your left hand.” – Serena Williams

Work on your toss.” – Venus Williams

Andre Agassi, who won eight Grand Slams put it bluntly: “If you don’t practice you don’t deserve to win.” (Luckily for you, our Tennis Center is open daily, and even has lights so you can play into the evening.)

More than perhaps any other sport, tennis is as mental as it is physical, as any Grand Slam Champion will tell you.

Emotional strength in the game of tennis is everything.” – Billie Jean King

When asked what advice he’d give to players looking to improve their tennis game, Novac Djokovic said, "Passion, believing in yourself, in your abilities."

You’ve just got to get over that mental hurdle and those battles in your own head during matches when things aren’t going so well.” – Samantha Stosur

When it comes down to it, it’s just you, your opponent, and the tennis court. Professional tennis players know that focus and attention are essential to coming out with a win.

The next point? That’s all you must think about.” – Rod Laver

Previously I always thought it was just tactical and technique, but every match has become almost mental and physical—I try to push myself to move well. I try to push myself not to get upset and stay positive, and that's what my biggest improvement is over all those years. Under pressure I can see things very clear.” – Roger Federer
