Video of my serve about 3 months ago, when it sucked. Most of it's corrected, and i'm really serving a whole lot better now.

nice video

That you? His strokes are quite nice for 11! The racquet looks to be slowing him down a bit though...

Hate your backhand?:p

Nice strokes, do you ever hit closed stanced or neutral stance? Even when you have the time?


And the racquet...RDS 001?

yea i was sorta in a forehand mode and my coach threw me a backhand. i never hit with a completely closed stance, unless i don't have the time. I do have a more closed stance on my inside-out forehand, but its still relatively open. i will also close up my stance a bit when im looking for angles and for dropshots. and yes thats a rds 001 mp, ive since switched to the fischer pro no.1s for a while and then the prostaff tour 90.

hey nalbandian fan, where are you from? im from wisconsin too.

ipodtennispro
12-11-2006, 09:58 PM
This is easy. You are doing a classic waiter or waitress serve. Your palm is facing upwards on your backswing which is not how you want to serve. Your knuckles, or the back of your hand should point up. I have a free website at ipodtennispros.com and visit the "Serve" section. You can correct that problem very easily. Just follow Dr. Ben Kibler's throwing motion progression.

Were you getting fed to in that vid? You say your only 4.0 or so, but the vid looks like you hit it pretty hard. I ask because I had a hit today with a chick who could hit the ball better than me in the warm up and then we played a match no points over 3 hits I won 6-0.

yea i was being fed to. I do hit almost as hard as that in matches, my main weaknesses are my serve/return, i rarely lose once im in a baseline rally.

K that's good. My point was, this girl looked like she was seriously good, better than me, but when we played a match....well she could not hit more than 2 or 3 shots.

Duzza, I know a really high ranked girl that I sometimes hit with who is exactly like that. She either hits a fantastic winner or it's right into the net. She actually has nicer form on her OHBH than I do! Good thing I'm a two hander!

I've only got a video of me serving in my back garden about a year ago when i was 17 - excuse the quality.

Normal speed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfGyusAeQ_I

Slower: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTq1_kJNJKA

My serve is faster than that now, though i'm not sure as i've just come back from injury and am a bit rusty :(

EDIT: links fixed

01-14-2007, 04:36 PM
I think you need to get up into the court with a slight jump perhpas because it looked like you were going to fall flat on your face!

EDIT:

My strokes, sorry for the crappy quality, just do "fit to original size" or whatever it says and it gets a little better.

you pretty much have no bend at the knees at all
It doesn't seem like your exploding upwards and into the serve as you should be if you were bending your knees

They are pretty good serves, but it seems like you have no stage where you really load your legs so you can explode into the shot. Perhaps thats what the other guy was trying to say.

Hi. I'm new here. I have a son, Stefan Alex, born in 1996 who has been playing tennis since the age of 5. He will turn 11 in Oct. After a few years of developing his deep interest in the game I enrolled him to a structured coaching class twice a week. For the rest of the week, I coach him for 3 hours a day. Recently I produced a collection of 6 videos of him executing all his strokes. Please feel free to look at http://www.youtube.com/user/waltenis

I'm sorry for coming into this thread which is meant for junior players. But I really appreciate it if anyone can give me a much needed constructive opinion how Stefan can improve his game further. Thankyou.

That serve is just all arm, man. No knee bend or real push through the ball at all. Just whipping your arm through it to be honest. Won't be surprised if you tear your rotator cuff when you're warming up that serve.

Doesn't look to bad but needs work, stop making your backleg go up so much after the serve btw it looks kinda gay.
