5. As you find yourself regaining your potential conditions and game form, you will probably want to start serious, focused practice with a hitting partner who shares your desire to improve.
4e. You need to ease back into hitting. If you haven’t hit for a while, your hands will not be calloused. The last thing you want is to develop blisters as you are trying to get back into competitive form. That’s why we recommend that for the first two weeks, you hit every other day. By the end of the two weeks, your hands should have develop most of the necessary calluses.
4d. Don’t neglect you serve! This is the single most important stroke in tennis and for some players it’s the stroke that is least practiced. Spend lots of time hitting serves…especially second serves. If you never lost your serve in a match, you wouldn’t lose the match. If you nerve double faulted, your chances of winning the game go up significantly. So, second servers are really of utmost importance.

If you are really dedicated, you can probably only change a maximum of three strokes in a given 5 – month tennis session. Most players can only change and improve one stroke.
4. Recapturing and improving your strokes is the next on your planning list. If you are a fairly well skilled player, it will take at least two weeks of hitting (assuming you hit at least five days per week) to get back your old form. The question is: “Do I want to regain my old form or do I want a new one?”
3e. Finally, you probably want to take a look at your diet. If you are not eating properly, you are not going to perform at your maximum potential. Again, your physician is the best person to consult when it comes to the diet that will work best for you.
3d. Stretching before and after each workout can go a long way in helping you to avoid injuries.
3c. It is important to start slow and to increase at reasonable rate. One doesn’t want to sustain an injury before tennis season begins. If you are strength training or working out a t a gym, you might want to consult with a personal trainer. See or he may be able to devise a plan that meets your needs with the least amount of risk.
