On Episode 128 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with former ATP pro, Taylor Dent, about how you can develop a solid serve and volley game that will put your opponents on the defensive.
Taylor achieved a career high ranking of #21 in the world on the ATP Tour and won four singles titles. He reached the 4th round of Wimbledon and the US Open. He also placed 4th in the 2004 Olympics. Taylor has defeated numerous tennis legends such as Andy Roddick, Novak Djokovic, James Blake, Lleyton Hewitt, Marat Safin, and many other unbelievable players with his huge serve and volley game. His parents, half-brother, godfather, and wife also played tennis professionally. Taylor is a coach and co-founder of the Dent Tennis Academy at The Birch Racquet and Lawn Club in Keller, Texas.
On the show, you’ll learn how to think like a professional serve and volleyer, the right tactics to use when you are at net, drills you can perform to become a better serve and volleyer, Taylor’s toughest battles in his tennis career, the secret to hitting a 149mph serve, the big change Taylor made to his game early on to succeed on the pro tour, and much more!
