On Episode 240 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with tennis coach and fellow podcaster Jonathan Stokke about deliberate practice and the keys to winning in college and junior tennis.
Jonathan hosts the Baseline Intelligence Podcast and is a tennis coach in Charleston, South Carolina. He spent 14 years as both a student-athlete and coach with the Duke men’s tennis program. Jonathan helped Duke to two ACC Championship titles (2003, 2006) and was named the ACC Tournament MVP in 2006. He is a former All-American and two-time All-ACC pick and was also named the ITA Carolina Region Assistant Coach of the Year. Jonathan became the first student-athlete in program history to win the ITA National Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship and Leadership Award in 2006 while also earning the USTA Sportsmanship Award.
On the show, you’ll learn what deliberate practice is and how to implement it in your training, the most effective drills you can use during your practices, the keys to success in junior and college tennis, the most important traits of a successful tennis player, how Jonathan became an elite level tennis player, the pros and cons of online tennis instruction, and much more!
