How can I train properly during the winter months?
Real Tennis Players - Like You! - Asking For and Offering Advice on the Sport They Love
Player to Player is USTA.com’s regular feature in which everyday tennis players are given a forum to ask advice on the sport they love – and their fellow players will dish out advice. We’ll post a number of the best responses we receive to our question of the week.
Player to Player:
This week's question from Joshua, courtesy of playtennis.com:
Can someone give me an explanation of how to hit a topspin forehand? Also, some tips on how to use it would be nice. Thanks.
Please share your thoughts by e-mailing Player@usta.com, and include your name and hometown.

Got a question of your own? Send that along, too!
Last week's question from Jesse:
(Please note: There is no need to send additional responses to this question.)
I just played my first season for my high school tennis team. It is too cold out to play now, and I was wondering what you could suggest I do for the winter months. Any help would be appreciated!

Player Responses:

From Deepa P., via playtennis.com:
Personally I would try to find some indoor courts nearby in order to stay in good shape.
From Michelle, New York:
I would find a local gym, where you can work on conditioning as well as your tennis game.
*Please note that any advice given out in this forum should in no way be confused with actual medical advice. Before starting any new exercise regimen or altering your existing one, we strongly urge you to consult with your regular physician.
