TFP 117: Q&A Edition – Playing Serve and Volleyers, Serving Bigger, Movement Tips, and More!

FB TFP 117_ Q and A Edition - Playing Serve and Volleyers, Serving Bigger, Movement Tips, and More with Mehrban Iranshad

On Episode 117 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I am back to answering questions that I received from our fellow tennis players about playing against serve and volleyers and counterpunchers, maintaining fitness and improving movement, controlling power on our strokes, hitting faster serves and more! I routinely receive emails and messages on my social media accounts asking questions about how to level up, and I picked out eight of them to answer on the podcast today.

I really enjoy receiving emails from the Tennis Files community and do my best to answer them all (even if it takes a little while!). I really appreciate all your questions because they will help a lot of passionate tennis players like you and me improve our games. Thanks again to every single one of you who has contacted me with your excellent questions!

I really hope you enjoy this episode! If you like the format, let me know in the comments below so that I can do more Q&A episodes in the future!

  • Q.4 My strokes are great but my movement needs to be faster as I'm overweight. Other than slimming down, what can I do to get faster moving around the court and to get into ready position?
