This is the first episode in a four-part series on doubles strategy. If you’ve never thought about strategy before or are new to doubles, this series will get you started and help you turn into a smarter, more effective tennis player.

In this episode, I discuss the foundations and fundamentals that you need to know to become a good doubles player. I also teach you how to be mentally tougher on the doubles court, including how to deal with anger and how we should be viewing each point.

You’ll also learn what you should do between points to improve your in-match strategy. Then I briefly share the role or job of all four players on the doubles court.


Listen to all four episodes in this series on doubles strategy:

  1. Foundations of Double Strategy & The Mental Game (this episode)
  2. Serve Team Strategy for Doubles
  3. Winning Return Strategies for Doubles
  4. Net Play Strategy for Doubles
