"Start winning matches against players you've never beaten before"
The only way to quickly improve your tennis is to play a smarter tactical game. In fact, smarter play is what separates champions from average tennis players…
Dear tennis friend,
If you want to start winning matches you’ve been losing, feel better about yourself, and combine your nice strokes with intelligent tactical play (without spending dozens of hours on court and lots of money on tennis lessons), then you’ve discovered the way.
My name is Tomaz Mencinger. I have been a tennis pro (USPTR Professional) and an expert tennis player for over 15 years. I am not a copywriter, but I want to share something with you that will help you play better tennis and win more matches, regardless of your tennis skills.
When I started playing tennis at the age of 15, I had no one to coach me. I learned by watching TV, by using my VCR to observe and analyze Andre Agassi's forehand in slow motion, and by relentless practicing in front of the mirror.
Then I hit the courts and tried to practice the strokes while hitting with my friends. Since the talent was there from other sports, I quickly developed very good technique. I then felt ready to play in tournaments and various leagues around my country.
I'm sure you can guess what happened...
It was a disaster!
My pretty strokes were useless. On the other side of the net were players twice or three times my age with funny looking strokes and big bellies, totally unfit.
The result? 0-6, 1-6!
I felt like a yoyo yanked from side to side, back and forth. Before I realized what was happening it was over. My opponent shook hands with a slight sly smile, probably thinking: »Another one who doesn't know what tennis is all about…«.
Here I was, giving my best effort, working hard, playing good »looking« tennis, and yet I was out of the tournament in the first round with a humiliating score.
This had to stop!
It was too painful, especially since I felt that I had the potential to play good tennis. Obviously, something goes on in a match that I was unaware of. Somehow, my opponent was outsmarting me. And I didn't like that. ;)
With the same determination I applied to my strokes, I started studying tennis strategy and tactics. I watched hundreds of matches live and on TV, asking myself: »WHY are they playing like this? What is the purpose of this shot? What will they achieve if they play like that?«
The answers gradually appeared in my mind. I realized that beneath the outer game of tennis there is another game — the strategic and tactical one to outsmart your opponent.
I realized that strokes are just the tools of achieving something else — winning the match with smarter play.
And soon after this realization something else happened!
I started winning more and more matches!
Same strokes, same abilities, different thinking, smarter play, better analysis of my opponent, and increasing belief in myself — it all translated into winning most matches I played against players at my level.
This journey continued for 15 years. I played; I coached players from club level to national ranking; and I continued to study tennis strategy.
Because of my own struggle to find the hidden code within the game and because of the thousands of hours I’ve spent watching tennis matches, you now have the opportunity to cut years off your learning curve:
"The Tennis Strategy Encyclopedia"
"Start Winning Against Players You've Never Beaten Before!"
This is an ebook in Adobe PDF format that you can immediately download to your computer.
It is truly an encyclopedia of tennis strategies and tactics for every level of play, whether you are a beginner or an expert tennis player.
Actually as you will discover expert players base most of their game on very simple tactics that are suitable even for beginners. And only on top of those basic patterns they choose more advanced and expert tactical combinations.
So the encyclopedia teaches players of every level how to play better tennis and use their potential to the maximum.
|»Very cool. This ebook helped my game a lot. I now know how to play even the most difficult opponents and find their weaknesses. |
I feel a much more mature player especially when I meet new and different opponents.«

Then what can you learn from it?
You get more than 100 pages of condensed and organized information showing you:
- The secret to playing good tennis (It's NOT trying to beat your opponent!)
- The 4 basic tennis laws — the foundation of tennis (If you don’t know them, you are sending your opponent a gift every few points.
- The first one is the simplest but isn’t used enough.
- Crosscourt or down the line? Which direction? When?
- How to cover the court so that you move as little as possible
- What to do with your second serve even if your opponent has good strokes on both sides?
- The 6 general tennis strategies that you can use at EVERY level of play — from beginners in mini tennis to the Andre Agassi and Roger Federer level of play:
- How 10% improvement gives you 100% of the point
- How to force more short balls from your opponent
- How to make the best of your tennis skills
- How to make the best of your opponent's weaknesses
- How to make your opponent feel that your shots are coming faster and faster, even though you hit them the same
- What you can do to break the rhythm of even the best players
You'll then see how to apply those 6 general strategies to all 5 game-playing situations: when serving, when returning serve, when both players are at the baseline, when playing at the net, and when hitting a passing shot or lob. This gives you 30 situations that you can practice.
Imagine being at least proficient with them. Could anyone then predict how you are going to play the next point?
I read your ebook on Tennis Strategy with great interest. I have played for 26 years on various teams and also in small local tournaments. I have read many different books on the subject but have never encountered something as complete as this.|
Particularly, valuable is how you give readers specific summaries of what to do in certain situations. There were many eye-opening strategies that I had never ever heard about.
Most impressive was your analysis of professional tennis matches in which you trace out exactly how even the very best players rely on basic strategies to win points. I even went to youtube and verified it for myself. Your analysis was right on the mark.
I also want to point out that your willingness to answer emails directly makes this offer cheaper than anything on the market. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about the X's and O's of tennis.
One last thing, I implemented many of these strategies on the court with great success!

|"This was a refreshing read - not about someone's "correct" way to hit a tennis ball, but rather how to think about what tennis shots to hit, and why good choices will help you win. |
This book is going in my tennis bag!"
To Inrease Your Tactical Knowledge Even More...
... and to make you a smarter and tougher competitor, you also learn expert playing tips used only by the most skilled players (or players striving to become one):
- How to play a drop shot so that your opponent has no idea what you are up to
- How to turn your opponent's anticipation of the drop shot in your favor (After you do this, your opponent will be totally confused and not know what comes next.)
- The Pavlov Trick (an »ace up your sleeve«)
- How to double-wrongfoot your opponent (Use this trick at your own risk — your opponent might get furious.)
But wait, that’s only the FIRST PART of The Strategy Encyclopedia!
And all those tactics in it work regardless of the type of player you are facing!
So, you already have a wealth of tactical information to help you win more matches. But the Encyclopedia gives you A LOT more…
The second part of the Strategy Encyclopedia will show you…
»How to outplay ANY type of player in the tactical and mental part of the game!«
You probably know what type of opponent is your Achilles heel. There are just some players who aren’t very good, yet you regularly lose to them. Somehow, their game really hurts your way of playing.
And your confidence too, right?
This will end, read on…
There are 4 typical player game-types: the counter-puncher, the aggressive baseliner, the serve-and-volleyer, and the all-court player. Since any type of player can play against any type of opponent, this translates to 16 adaptations of these four main strategies.
So, you will discover:
How to adapt your main strategy if you are a counter-puncher and you play against:
- another counter-puncher
- an aggressive baseliner
- a serve-and-volleyer
- an all-court player
Likewise for the other 3 game types: for each you'll get a detailed tactical and mental plan for how to approach a match against each type of player.
Why the mental plan?
Since both of you may have a good tactical plan, the game may not depend on who plays a smarter game but on who EXECUTES their game better.
To win that battle you need the right mindset. That’s where the two mental battles come in.
One is the battle with your own mind, which might lead you toward goals other than winning the match.
The other mental battle is with your opponent.
Maybe it’s a battle of patience or a battle to be immune to errors or something like that. It’s a battle within the battle. While you execute your tactical patterns, you also compete with your opponent on a different level. And if you lose the mental battle, then your tactical plan is gone, too.
That’s why the tactical battle is only a part of the story. You also need to be mentally tough to get through all the troubles and setbacks you will inevitably meet in high quality tennis matches.
|“The e-book is really good for players and coaches alike. It gives you an in depth information on how to effectively use your strongest weapon - your head! I guarantee you will improve your game in different ways after reading the e-book. |
This could be your missing puzzle to put your game together.”

All Right, You Are Now Halfway Through…
You’ve now mastered playing excellent tactical tennis, whether that means playing smart in general or playing against a specific type of player.
You now need to consider other factors that determine the outcome of a match and go even deeper in understanding how we make decisions during a ball exchange, how intuition helps us play better and more effectively.
That’s what PART III of The Tennis Strategy Encyclopedia will show you.
1. How to play on different court surfaces so that you maximize your playing style on every surface:
- What kind of shots are best used on clay and what to avoid so you minimize unforced errors
- Which tactical plays are most effective on hard courts and indoors and what general approach will win you the most points
- How to play on grass (if you happen to get the chance) so that you take advantage of every characteristic of grass courts (like the low, fast and unpredictable bounces), and how the ball behaves when hit flat, with slice or with topspin.
2. How to play in special situations like the following:
- Playing in the wind — how to adapt your targets and strokes for consistency in those annoying conditions, how to play with the wind in your face, and how to take advantage of a wind at your back.
- Playing a left-hander — a nightmare for many players. Yet there are surprising strategies you can use to outplay this tricky opponent;
- learn how to dominate with your forehand against their backhand,
- learn what to avoid when defending against a left-hander’s crosscourt shots,
- learn how to neutralize their usually effective leftward curving serve to the ad court,
- and learn what mental attitude to adopt so you avoid the frustration that comes when you feel helpless against a left-hander’s tactics
- Winning against a better player — what 3 attributes distinguish good players from those who are merely good hitters. Discover how this information helps you devise your winning tactic against them. You’ll learn what kind of shots it’s best to avoid against good players, how to find their weaknesses, and how to stay positive and fight until you win, even when the match seems lost.
But that still isn’t all...
There are even more strategies in the Encyclopedia!
In PART IV you are going to find out more about how the mind works and how to use all this information from the ebook (and your experience) to help you play your best tennis:
- What are tactical decisions and what is the secret to making quick and correct decisions during the brief time you have while the ball is coming?
- What is the hidden part in the tennis strategy of the best all-court players like Martina Hingis and Roger Federer — the part that enables them to play statistically high-percentage tennis and yet surprise their opponent with the most cunning and unpredictable shots and combinations?
- You’ll of course also learn how to develop this in your game (and mind) to make you a great tactical player, too!
- Last, but not least, you’ll learn how to apply all this information from the Strategy Encyclopedia in a step-by-step manner, so that you don’t feel overwhelmed by the amount of information you absorbed during your study of all these strategies and tactics.
|"In The Tennis Strategy Encyclopedia, Tomaz Mencinger tells us to accept reality in tennis and in life. He tells us what to work on in terms of strategy and tactics. What to do, why to do it, and how to do it.|
He even tells us what we can do now and what we might do as we improve. Tomaz, like a chess teacher, doesn't talk down to us, but instead shows how a real master can explain things in a simple way.
As always, he says good things in an interesting way, so that we can enjoy our education. Tomaz, thank you for sharing your wit and wisdom with me."

So, let’s take a brief recap of everything you’ll learn in The Tennis Strategy Encyclopedia:
PART I introduces you to:
- The 4 basic tennis laws — the foundation of the tennis game
- The 6 general tennis strategies — they apply to every level of play
- Basic tennis tactics — although simple, they are used by best players in almost 2/3 of their tactical decisions
- Advanced tennis tactics — how to upgrade your game to more effective and unpredictable play
- Expert tennis tactics — when you master these plays you’ll have the edge even against your toughest opponents
- Detailed statistical analysis of the Roger Federer – Andre Agassi US Open final in 2005 and what can you learn from their tactics
- Expert tennis tips — disguise your shots and outplay your opponent when they least expect it
In the PART II you’ll learn how to play against specific types of opponents:
- Aggressive baseliner
- All-court player
There are four main strategies and, for each, four modified strategies, one for each type of opponent. So all together, there are 16 adaptations of four main strategies.
For every variation you will discover the keys to winning the tactical and the mental battle that goes on in the match.
PART III explains playing in special situations:
- How to play on different court surfaces (clay, hard court, grass court) so that you can maximize the effect of your playing style
- How to play in the wind, using it to your advantage
- How to tackle lefties and become their nightmare opponent
- How to win matches against players better than you (Learn what separates good players from good hitters and win with your IQ.)
In PART IV you’re going to complete your strategy “training” with deeper subjects like:
- Tactical decisions — what are they and how to train yourself to make them quickly during ball exchanges
- The hidden part of the best tactical players’ games and how you can learn to use that part too
- How to apply all this information in a step-by-step manner and gradually improve your game in every tactical part of tennis
All right, this seems like a lot of expert info!
How much is all that worth to you?
Let’s see by comparing the cost of The Tennis Strategy Encyclopedia to the cost of the other ways you can learn strategy.
One way is by watching matches on TV or live and studying them. This may not cost you much money, but it does take a LOT of time to understand what is going on, since no one will explain it to you.
Another way is by taking lessons. A typical lesson costs between $30 and $60. If a coach just quickly read the book to you, it would take him around 10 hours. Multiply that by $45 (the median price of a lesson) and it would cost you $450 just to listen to all the information once.
But since you can get this ebook immediately with a download, and since I want you to win more and reach the level of play you are capable of, your total investment for the Tennis Strategy Encyclopedia ebook is only $27.
This is what most good USPTA or PTR certified coaches charge for a 30 minute practice.
Why such a low price for a 100-page ebook with all this detailed knowledge on tennis strategies and tactics?
Since you’ll be downloading the ebook directly from the Internet, I have no inventory and no fulfillment costs. That way I can pass the savings to you.
Now think about it — which option will help you improve more: a 30-minute practice on court or the wealth of information from the 38,000 words in the Tennis Strategy Encyclopedia?
And remember — once your practice on court is over, you have to pay again for the next session. But once you get this ebook, you can return to it even years after your investment, since you’ll still have it.
