On Episode 184 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I interviewed Kevin Garlington, the founder of Total Tennis Domination, on how we can go from being stuck and frustrated to rapidly improving our games.

Kevin is the Head Tennis Pro at Cedar Ridge Country Club in Oklahoma and also churns out online tennis instruction content at Total Tennis Domination. He previously worked with my friend Ian Westermann at Essential Tennis, one of the biggest and most well-known online tennis businesses in the world. Kevin is a 5.0+ player and competed at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University, as well as on the Pro Circuit in the US and Spain. Both Kevin and his wife Megan have been teaching tennis together for many years and have helped improve thousands of players with their top quality instruction. Kevin has also been a featured coach on my online Tennis Summits.

On the show, you’ll learn why players get stuck for years at the same level, what to focus on in your game to make big improvements, Kevin’s systematic approach to developing adult tennis players, what part of the serve players struggle with most and how to fix it, winning singles strategies, Kevin’s tennis journey from a late start in his teens to Division I college tennis baller and eventual world-class coach, and much more!

I hope you enjoy my interview with Kevin! Let us know what you think about this episode in the comments below!
