I first got serious about tennis after reading Tim Galloways book The Inner Game of Tennis. Mary Pat is the only instructor I know that could convert that book to the practice of tennis and take it beyond. In over 20 years of taking lessons and drills from Mary Pat, I am consistently amazed at how her instruction is constantly evolving and growing in depth. If I had to use two words to sum up Mary Pat, it would be fundamentals and flexibility. That would be the fundamentals of footwork, body motion, and racquet along with the flexibility of the mind to constantly adjust and grow.
