Special Announcement
Tennis Manga Graphic Novel to Benefit Agassi Foundation
Share:   

Announcing the availability of graphic novel Aced, Volume One: Tennis Manga. All proceeds will be donated to the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education.

Created by Catherine Chen, a sixteen-year old USTA junior competitor from Southern California, this manga series follows the journey of a Japanese fifth grade student and her fun-filled tennis career. She is a total novice, but with her coach, a pro who had to retire due to injuries, and her supportive best friend, things are going to get interesting!

Check out Aced, Volume One here. You can see the front and back covers, and sample pages, and order from the secured shopping cart run by Yutopian Enterprises, a well established publisher.

The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education has raised millions of dollars for charity and has done wonderful work to transform public education for the underserved. All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Foundation.

The Value of Front Court Skills in College Tennis
I've had several recruits ask for training suggestions as they make the transition to college. A common theme between the three programs I've been part of the past few years has been the amount of work put into developing doubles skills, especially with freshmen. Recruiting players who can make immediate contributions to the doubles lineup has become harder to do, so my suggestion to young players in general is to develop the ability to play the net.
