Guillermo with James Blake at The West Side Tennis Club

How do I stop hitting the ball so hard!

Hi Guillermo,

I feel the need to put speed on the ball too often to try to keep it in the court.  As a result many of my shots go out because my margin of error is compromised.

Can you help……..


Opening the Face of the Racquet!

Hi Guillermo,

I have a problem.  I tend to close the face of my racquet without realizing it.  As a result sometimes my shots dont keep a good margin of error over the net.

Do you think I should change my grip or is there something else I can try to help me open the face.

Thanks for any help…….Caroline

Add to that the elegance of the grass court play in front of you, a spectacular sunset, a few friends, a glass of fine wine or champagne, and a crackling fireplace and it’s easy to overlook the fine international lunches, dinners, BBQ’s and Buffets that we enjoy here at The West Side Tennis Club.
