Continued from page 1
The stretching exercises should be done before and after a game. Some sort of warm up needs to be done before embarking on stretching exercises so as to avoid injury. This does not need to be very elaborate. You can for example walk very briskly from car to course as your warm up program. The ides is to avoid suddenly stretching your muscles when they are cold and stiff from inactivity.
A simple exercise program where some of stretching exercises can even be done in office on your desk when you have a moment will help any golfer avoid golfer elbow. And those golfers who already have a nagging golfer elbow can also speed their way to complete recovery by taking some expert advice in use of golf-specific exercises.

The 6 game situations in TennisWritten by Mark Luyk
Continued from page 1
5.Hitting passing shots + lobs..........Most people at first have a tendency to 'panic' when their opponent shows up at net. (Some people never leave this stage... ;-) Once you realize you can go for winner, or first play a subtle 'dinky' shot and then blast it by your opponent, or choose to play a lob, this situation can become a fun and challenging one. 6.Lob recovery.........................When your opponent hits a lob you cannot put away with a smash, you can often run after it and keep ball in play, for example with a lob of your own. You'll see craziest shots in this situation. People will apply 'pancake method' and try to flip ball over their shoulder holding racket with both hands, or they will go for 'Sabatweeny' (named after Argentinean player Gabriela Sabatini who would on occasion hit ball between her legs with her back to net), some people will try to smash ball either keeping their backs to net or trying to turn while hitting. So six game-situations are: 1.Serving. 2.Returning serve. 3.Playing a baseline rally. 4.Approaching and hitting volleys 5.Hitting passing shots and lobs 6.Lob recovery So what are you supposed to do in these situations? Let's talk some more about that in next weekly tennis tip. That's all for now. Enjoy game and see if you can recognize these 6 situations.
