"On Court with USPTA" is the cable TV show produced by the United States Professional Tennis Association. In this episode USPTA Master Professional Jorge Capestany reveals several tactical secrets that can be utilized when playing a doubles match.
Many club-level doubles teams often lose matches because they fail to implement specific tactics that greatly increase their chances of victory. In this show Capestany touches on shot selection, shot placement, doubles communication and formation, and demonstrates how viewers and their doubles partners can use these tips to win matches.
