1) Internet Explorer 5.0 on Macs
There is a know problem with the 5.0 version of Internet Explorer for Macs that will cause the error "Security failure. Data decryption error." to be displayed when accessing secure pages, such as the new registration or renewal pages. Please use a different browser such as Safari or Netscape to register or renew your account.

2) QuickTime problem with Jaguar on Mac OS X
The QuickTime movies used in the ProStrokes Gallery are not displaying correctly when viewed through the Jaguar browser using the new Mac OS X (Tiger) operating system. Until a patch is released from Apple to fix this problem please use a different browser to access and view these movies. In the meantime we're continuing to investigate possible work-arounds.

Please verify the following if you are having difficulties viewing the TennisOne videos:

  1. Verify that QuickTime is installed and working on your computer by launching the QuickTime application. Click on the Start button and select All Programs/QuickTime/QuickTime Player. The QuickTime Player should launch. Click here to download the free QuickTime Player from Apple's website.

3) QuickTime7 problem with Safari on Mac OS X (Tiger)
The QuickTime movies used in the ProStrokes Gallery are not displaying correctly when viewed through the Safari browser using the new Mac OS X (Tiger) operating system. Until a patch is released from Apple to fix there are three possible solutions.

Solution 1: Use a Different Browser

Perhaps the easiest solution is to simply use a different browser such as Internet Explorer, Netscape, or Mozilla to access the TennisOne site.

Solution 2: Downgrade to QuickTime 6.5.2

Apple has provided a utility to remove QuickTime 7 and reinstall QuickTime 6.5.2. The QuickTime 6.5.2 Reinstaller can be downloaded by clicking here to go to Apple's support page.

Solution 3: Archive QuickTime Plugin.webplugin

If you'd like to continue to use Apple's Safari browser without downgrading to QuickTime 7 you can easily archive the QuickTime Plugin.webplugin file and you will then be able to view the videos on the TennisOne site. To archive the QuickTime Plugin.webplugin file, follow these steps:

  1. Open up the Library>Internet Plug-in folder located on your hard-drive.
  2. Select the QuickTime Plugin.webplugin file by clicking on it.
  3. Choose Create Archive of "QuickTime Plugin.webplugin" from the File menu. This will create a new zip file called "QuickTime", and leaves the original file in place.
  4. Delete the existing QuickTime Plugin.webplugin file. (This file can be restored by double-clicking on the zip file if you later decide you need it.)
  5. Quit completely out of the Safari browser and restart it. You should now be able to view the videos. It's possible that you'll need to restart you computer before these changes will be go into effect.

Doing a search on TennisOne is fun and easy. Simply type one or more search terms (the words or phrase that best describe the information you want to find) into the search box and hit the 'Go' key. In response, TennisOne produces a results page: a list of TennisOne web pages related to your search terms, with the most relevant page appearing first , then the next, and so on.

TennisOne simplifies the display of the results page by organizing the content into three different areas:

  1. Articles (general articles, lessons, and tips)
  2. Prostrokes (videos of your favorite professional men/women tennis players)
  3. Newsletters (free content published weeklyl)

Search results for both the Articles and Newletters will include the author's name.

As a TennisOne member, you may navigate to content in any of the three areas. If you are a guest, you are limited to the free content area.

Choosing Search Words

Choosing the right search terms is the key to finding the information you need. Start with the obvious - if your'e looking for general information on Agassi, try Agassi. If you are looking for more specific information such as Agassi's forehand then try Agassi Forehand.


TennisOne searches are case insensitive. All letters, regardless of how you type them, will be understood as lower case. For example, searches for Andre Agassi, andre agassi, and aNdRe AgAsSi will all return the same results.

Types of Searches

If the checkbox titled Match any keyword is unchecked (i.e the default), if you enter multiple search words, TennisOne will only return pages that contain all of the required search words.

If the checkbox titled Match any keyword is checked, if you enter multiple search words, TennisOne will return any page that contains at least one of the required search words.

Display Occurrences

By default, TennisOne will display the first five most revelant occurrences in each of the areas. As a TennisOne member you can modify these preferences by modifying them within your My TennisOne page. Select the My Preferences tab and use the drop-down boxes to select the number of occurences you would like displayed for each area. If you change a selection make sure to click on the Save Search Options button.
