Source: Simplest and most efficient tennis technique

Tennis can be a graceful and stylish sport.

Like a gazelle, a top player darts off the ground, while the rhino gets stuck on it.

If you hold a tennis ball in your left hand and flick it upwards with your right middle finger, the ball rises about one foot. Now set the ball on the ground and flick it forward and it rolls ten or fifteen feet. Same force applied, the vertical resistance of gravity shows here to be ten to fifteen times as much as the horizontal one.

Is tennis mainly horizontal? This demonstration shows it is mainly vertical!

I call my system Modern Tennis Methodology. I have had the integrity and the courage to develop a most simple and effective tennis coaching method, something that can be applied from beginner to pro level, from a little child to an elder. It results not only in an efficient game but also the stylish performance that you see in the best pros.

No matter what the industry says in its confused search through vapid stereotypes, truths are surfacing like pure water from a natural spring – in some cases, more like hot thermal haze that evaporates the myriad misconceptions that abound.

The public knows!

Tennis can be a natural, easy sport to learn!

FROM REVOLUTION TO EVOLUTION AND BACK AGAIN In a stunning display of mastery on both the men’s and women’s sides at the 2017 Australian Open Finals, four of the sport’s all-time g…


There has never been a system that explained how top tennis pros become top tennis pros, one self-teaching methodology that assembles all the components of the sport of TENNIS in a simple, natural, efficient and easily applicable manner.

There is one now, Modern Tennis Methodology, developed by Oscar Wegner in a very graphic and detailed manner in his greatest book ever:
Play Like the Pros
published in March 2016 and with free access @

Avail yourself of it and your game will never be the same. EVOLVE !!!

Our teachings, Modern Tennis Methodology, MTM for short, are totally natural, efficient, and non intrusive.

After all, it is you, the being, the spirit, who plays tennis, not the mind (read THINKING) with a bunch of ideas that complicate the process and your performance in the game.

The hands and the feel of the ball are all you need to focus on. You learned how to walk and run when you were two or three years old. Your feet will take you anywhere you want to go without even a thought.

Look, don’t think, and as you do that, LOOK how the ball changes speed. Tennis is a SLOW GAME. What makes it FAST? Using your MIND, THINKING.

Relax, move, execute and FEEL above all. Forget the power. You have it within.

Touch and feel the ball!

What’s the secret?

It is the extreme simplicity of a NO-THOUGHT-ALL-FEEL STATE, so intense but so focused that time expands.

If at times you’ve had such an experience you would know how serene, how all-feeling you can connect to action yourself!

For Martial Arts, Bruce Lee said “Be Like Water”!

For Tennis, Oscar says, “Be Like Air”. It’s everywhere!

I wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderful 2017.

We reinstated the Holiday 50% discount on all products until midnight January 2nd. Use the discount code “2016”.
With my best wishes and regards, 

Oscar Wegner

Roger is back on track for his comeback in 2017.

Two things will be the clue to his success, provided he regains his speed of foot:

FIRST, his extreme technical simplicity, which most observers call his incredible fluidity.

SECOND, his forehand open stance, which was compromised by an unfortunate one year stint, an intense training scenario from a very known coach he highly respected.

The miscue? “Step into the ball”, repeated over and over! Federer questioned why he was asked to do that (he had the best forehand in the world at the time this started) and he was told he needed such important fundamental.

Sadly, he complied, and the extreme accuracy (and confidence) in his forehand was gone. It was one year that cost him several Grand Slams he could have won on his own. Plus a deviation from the extreme fluidity he had had!

Beware of such specious and damaging ideas that can make you think of your feet and take away from the ultimate truth: tennis is a game of hand-eye coordination exclusively, not hand-eye-foot! You learned to move naturally when you were two or three years old!

Step into the ball and close stance are perhaps the biggest barriers to tennis prowess, although insisted by 90% or more of coaches today!

From today December 10 through Sunday December 18 all products on, including streaming of all DVDs, are discounted 50%. Use this opportunity to become familiar with all the revolutionary techniques that will propel your game to new heights. The code for the 50% discount is “2016”.

With my best regards and wishes for a very Happy Holiday Season,

There is an intimate relationship between simplicity and the quality of your game.

Actually, by actual survey, the top pros get to that stage by eliminating as many complications as possible from their game.

This process, for them, becomes so extreme that they favor coaches that make them FEEL they are playing a simpler and easier game, and they reject anyone that adds details that make them THINK more. Some of those coaches so favored are former champions themselves!

And right there are two keywords to a superior game. Tennis is a game of FEEL, not of THINK, although this needs to be clarified. We all love FEEL in all endeavors of life, It’s an ability to be in touch (forgive my pun) with the physical.

Whose ability? Here comes the philosophical: the SPIRIT WITHIN (each one of us).

There are two types of “thinking”. One is with the “mind”, the other more “knowing”, much higher into the aesthetic waves. You look at something, you find it “aesthetic”, beautiful, more natural, more consonant (in agreement or harmony) with who you are.

Getting back to the practical, tennis is a game of feel, of simplicity, of mental calmness, of doing what is natural, efficient, and the way to achieve that is taking the game’s basics to its upmost irreducible principles that include how you learned to walk, how to use your hands, how to feel with them, how to find something, how to play games.

Further, tested with kids, it works unbelievably well. Kids rally back and forth in no time!

That is why I teach open stance, like shaking hands (which could be also called NO STANCE, NATURAL-STANCE, NO-THOUGHT STANCE), tracking the ball until it is within your reach, rather than undue “preparation”. Just run to where you want to meet the ball, FIND it, FEEL and FINISH the stroke (the 3 Fs).

Why that FINISH? So you relate this FINISH to where the ball just went, without any other thought. It is part of that FEEL that is the aesthetic memory of the athlete within!

The reason to turn for the one-handed backhand is because it the playing hand closer to the ball and allows an easier FFF (Federer, Wawrinka, Dimitrov, Kuerten, Henin, Sabatini). Natural stance again!

Two-handed backhands, so well demonstrated by the Williams sisters, also open stance.

You find that in all my DVDs and books, the irreducible basics of a superb performer and the delicate developments thereof.

Why did I get so simple? Why do I keep repeating the?

Simply, to counteract the tennis world “experts” that keep adding misconceptions and complication that “kill” the game!

For most people, tennis being easy is a difficult concept to agree with. So let me ask you a few questions:

1) Do you like applying your own physical makeup, slow, fast, strong or delicate, easily when you play? Or do you adjust to strict ideas as to how to perform (i.e. conventional)?

2) Do you like ease and naturalness on your footwork? Or should there be a lot of detail and structure in your moves?

3) Would you want power without too much effort? Or do you think more power is necessarily dependent on force and effort?

4) Would you want to carry on your decisions with ease? Or do you shun simplicity fearing you would lose control?

5) Would you want your moves to naturally help your shots? Or do you feel you need body “positions” to succeed?

6) Would you want to have extra time for your shots? Or do you feel tennis is too fast and you need to prepare “early”?

Here is where you can test your answers: Modern Tennis Methodology loves the simplicity, ease and naturalness of techniques that will work for your body’s preference, your particular physique, your beingness (rather than “thinkingness”), your feel rather than “mind”, and much more.

Smoothness and ease are some of the most notable results from these techniques. Control, ball placement, touch and power are some other results.

If these align with your goals, you need to inspect them at a low price but high results. The four Tennis Into the Future DVDs (about six hours comprising all strokes plus a bonus 2 hr. DVD compilation of the best of my works), are only $59.95. The eleven Oscar’s DVDs are $89.95, or streamed $47.

Your well being, love for the game and confidence will benefit or your money back, guaranteed.

For the best example of ease and simplicity look at Roger Federer. He cleaned up and simplified his game lately to what it was when he was number one, and is coming back next year most likely to be again somewhat in command on the tour.

Join the revolution and evolution. Tennis is really a much easier sport to learn than what has been portrayed!

Oscar Wegner,



Why Great Players Are Not (Necessarily) Great Coaches

Screen Shot 2016-06-24 at 7.53.02 PM Tim Mayotte demonstrating his version of how to hit like GOAT Roger Federer

In 1968 Oscar Wegner took a position at the Beverly Hills Tennis Club as Assistant Coach to Pancho Segura. Wegner had spent five years on the international tour playing and practicing with many of the greatest names in tennis, and when he made the transition to coaching the first thing he noticed was that tennis was not being taught the way it was played by the pros. When he asked Pancho why this was so, the masterful Segura had no answer and gave Oscar permission to find one with many of his celebrity clients. During this period Wegner tested and developed a revolutionary new way of teaching tennis that he would later name Modern Tennis Methodology (MTM). Over the next two decades Wegner worked successfully with countless players…
