Tennis Web Sites
This site has an exceptionally focused breakdown of the tactics and strategy used in doubles play for tennis. Some topics include re-positioning, eye work, footwork and setting up formations. The main message: stay out of your partner's way and in your opponent's way. There is also a question and answer forum with Kathy Krajco, a tennis coach since she was 18, and the Web site's producer. The site is broken down in an outline format with endless subcategories, so Krajco's messages are easy to follow.
