The Edge     

Conventional tennis had been thought to be played with the strings meeting squarely the ball.

Modern tennis power emphasis is led mostly with the racquet’s edge.

Think of it in terms of Martial Arts.  The edge of the hand is your powerful weapon, and also your defense.

Today’s high power game is more of deflection than straight power.  You want spin on nearly every ball.

Lead with your racquet’s edges, top edge for topspin, bottom edge for slice, and you’ll have more control.
