Video: The "High Set" in Tennis

May-June 2010

In this video, Bruce Wright, volunteer assistant coach of Harvard men's tennis, and head men's coach Dave Fish describe and illustrate the concept of "high set" that they are introducing to the Harvard team, who also appear onscreen. As explained in more detail in the article "Game, Match, and High Set,"  Wright, a gymnast, identified the "high set" (high center of gravity) as a central factor that allows tennis players to move more quickly between shots on the court, and to perform more consistently, with less fatigue, and with fewer injuries.
