TFP 287: Rick Macci — How to Develop Rock Solid Technique: From the 2019 archive
Listen now
[From the archive: This episode was originally recorded and published in 2019] On Episode 287 of The Tennis Files Podcast, you’ll learn how to develop rock solid technique with legendary coach Rick Macci. This is a great interview that I had with Rick from 2019 and I want to bring it back for you because the lessons are valuable and timeless. Rick has coached five number one players: Venus and Serena Williams, Jennifer Capriati, Andy Roddick, and Maria Sharapova, as well as hundreds of world class professionals. He has guided his players to a combined 247+ USTA National Championships since 1985, and is widely regarded as one of the best tennis coaches of all time. Rick is also the founder of Rick Macci Tennis Academy, and is a highly sought out motivational speaker, clinician, and author.  On this episode, Rick discusses his philosophy on developing biomechanically-sound technique, gives us simple yet super-effective technique tips, and explains some huge mistakes in our technique that, if fixed, will supercharge your efficiency and power. I particularly love the power leak Rick mentions for the serve in the interview (I won't spoil it for you, you'll have to tune in to find out! :O) ). I hope you enjoy this podcast interview episode with Rick! Let us know what you think about it in the comments below! Rick Macci Tennis Academy Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
