To start, wanted to say hello to everyone here. My name is Michael, a recent transplant from NYC to SF. 99% of my family plays tennis aside from myself, and I'm now just getting into it at the age of 25.
I wanted to ask for some advice, as I did take 2-3 lessons about 5 years ago; and the instructor said I had great form and should just keep practicing. At this point, I signed up at a local club and will be taking private lessons + group sessions; but was curious if anyone had any advice on anything I should/should not be doing off the start. I want to make sure I don't develop something along the lines of bad form or comparable, which I have a hard time correcting in the future.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, look forward to hopefully asking more advanced questions soon!
Re: New Player
1- Practice regularly.
2- Eat proteins, vegatables and juices.
3- If you have, go for clay courts. It's easy to learn to how to play on it.
4- Be patient, you'll not going to become a good player in 2-3 months. You have to practice hard and regular. Also you have to keep your body tough.

Agreed, Luinir is absolutely right on all counts. Practice makes perfect. Additionally you should join the San Francisco Tennis Ladder. It's a great way to meet new players and find matches (which you need to play in order to really play!)
