Occam's Raquet: 12 Steps to Smarter Tennis  

Introduction by Stanford Coach Dick Gould


Tennis is a complex game, but it doesn't need to be difficult. Occam's Racquet breaks down the game of tennis and shows players how to change their approach to learning and playing the game.  Each of the twelve chapters focuses on one area of the physical or mental game of tennis.  For the many players struggling to master the "pro game" and modern teaching methods, the techniques in the book will help craft a reliable and consistent game, even for players with limited practice time.

Marcus Paul Cootsona is a tennis teaching professional in Northern California. He began playing tennis at age four and competed in tournaments until college and then began his tennis teaching career. Marcus has taught tennis for the past 29 years to all level players and has developed a simplified, modular approach to understanding the game. During that time he has also been an award-winning tennis specialty store owner, an importer, a retail consultant, a playwright and a screenwriter. Given enough time, he will surely find another career or two to pursue. Currently, he lives in Northern California with his wife and son and with two dogs he is teaching to play.
