Inertial tennis is the first internally coherent set of tennis techniques of strokes and movement, created around a theoretical structure embedded in the verified scientific knowledge. Each element of inertial tennis can be scientifically tested.

Inertial tennis is a technically complete structure: it consists of well-defined types of strokes combined into groups (forehands, backhands, volleys, overheads and serves). Movement techniques are efficient and deeply integrated with the strokes.

Inertial strokes use the same physical principles that are critical for the uniqueness of Roger Federer forehands.

Inertial strokes are powerful but effortless, the risk of injuries seems to be very low. Timings and flexibility are more important than athletic power.

Inertial tennis is a generalization of typical tennis. In critical situations inertial techniques give you place and time to reduce your technique into a non-inertial version.

It's easy to learn elements of inertial techniques. Total transformation is harder and should take 3-4 years. Due to the coherence of techniques, the longer you practice, the faster progress you see.

Inertial tennis should be tested in scientific experiments. There are no teaching programmes, no dedicated athletic workouts etc. Help to create them!

The full description of inertial tennis will be presented in the book "Inertial Tennis: The Sources of Internal Power". The book will probably be published as a crowdfunded project, and should be available at the beginning of 2020.

Inertial tennis is an open source project. Everyone can use it, verify it, extend it, and even make money using it - as long as the knowledge behind his/her work is available for other people.

We have to talk 27 January 2022
Today marks the seventh anniversary of the day when inertial tennis was transformed from a hypothesis into physical reality.

We need to talk. Honestly.

The Evolution of Inertial Tennis 29 May 2020
FRIDAY, 22:28
Two tales in one video: the history of inertial tennis and the visualization of the power of real scientific knowledge. You can watch "Inertial Tennis: The Evolution" here. You will probably be surprised by the type of exercises that allowed me to make such radical changes in my habits.

This video was finished two years ago. I did not present it due to the lack of interest in inertial techniques. Now, to be honest, I do not care anymore. It makes no sense to fight against inertia of the tennis world. We have to wait. 2 years? 5? 10? Maybe longer? Who knows?

This is Inertial Tennis 26 July 2019
FRIDAY, 15:52
The first complete presentation of inertial techniques is online. You can watch the video on the IT YouTube channel:

"This is Inertial Tennis"

All shots were recorded in 2017/2018, less than four years after the first successful execution of the inertial topspin backhand.

Today's uniqueness for tomorrow's many of us 10 July 2019
In modern tennis, the best players emerge as a result of multiple selections. This process is blind. What is worse, it does not improve the technical level of the entire population, it just removes the majority of players and exposes individuals with unique skills. Do we have any choice? Read the article "Dawn of a New Era" to discover, why Roger Federer is more exceptional than you think - and less unique at the same time.

Inertial chalice grip 28 June 2019
FRIDAY, 16:14
The first technical article about inertial tennis is online. Do not expect a revolution - it describes a small (but useful) detail of the serving sequence. After reading the article, you should have a better idea about the inertial approach to tennis techniques. Enjoy the reading: "Inertial Chalice Grip".

Stable core of modern tennis? 17 May 2019
FRIDAY, 16:12
Many qualitatively new ideas were born when people began to look closely at the foundations of their current knowledge. Inertial tennis was created in identical circumstances. So, is a scientific core of modern tennis as stable as people think? Find an answer in the article "Wind of Change" in Resources. Enjoy it - and start asking your own questions.
