Steve Smith is more than a coach. He’s a coach’s coach. He’s a teacher. He’s also a student. Steve has worked in the tennis profession for nearly 50 years and has more tennis knowledge in his left pinky than I have in my entire body.

In this conversation, we discuss where the serve and volley went, why doubles has lost popularity over the last 30-40 years, and why your volleys are floating instead of penetrating through the court. We talk doubles strategy and technique, but mostly I let Steve tell his stories and absorb his wealth of knowledge.
