Found this while trolling YouTube. I don't normally like watching western forehands but his looks really nice. I know people have asked for videos of Futures level players in the past, so I thought there might be some interest in this. His profile has more videos btw.

That's pretty cool, I enjoyed the second half of the vid most, with the "from behind" camera angle.

way better than 3.5

depending on his match exp, he would be 5.0+

^^^ Yea.

I hope 3.5 was just a joke.

The whole "3.5 at best" thing is kind of a joke around here for those of you who don't know. We say that to everything because some troll always talks about how a great video of someone (see: tonlars's thread) is just a video of some crappy player.

Good strokes though here!

If that's 3.5, then I'm going to go cry in my little corner. :(

If that's a 3.5.....oh. It's not. It's a 5.0+ player.

He's got a great forehand. Doesn't seem to have any backhand, though. :-)

Watch more of his vids. He's got a nice backhand.

If that's a futures player then so am I. Problem is, I'm not even close and unless I'm much mistaken, if that guy competed at that level, he'd get beaten pretty badly.

Yeah he's got a ways to go to compete in the big leagues. Looks like a decent college player maybe.

*SIGH*. You guys are killing me! He has videos posted of him PLAYING futures matches. He is clearly that caliber of player. I just want to scream when I read what some people jabber on about...AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Please post videos of yourself so I can laugh at this comment while I watch them.

Didn't look like a good backhand in the video, but most players-even futures players-are basically a forehand and a serve these days, and compensate for the weaker wing. They can run around the backhand, as he did through most of the video. He'd beat the pants off of me.

His coach looks like he has a pretty nice backhand and a one-hander. That's nice to see.

Check out the other videos he's posted Phil. He's posted match play where he uses his backhand quite a bit. It looks very effective.

What kind of racquet is that? It looks more square than any racquet I've seen.

Its the K-Factor and the headshape is an illusion...

Btw, this guy is really good!

I'd rather watch his coach, he didn't miss much at all.

Damn i'm looking at his other videos and i dont' know if this is another guy but i'd have to say he's 5.0+.

Western forehand with a K-Factor? That's odd... I thought those racquets were for flat eastern handed people.

I know some people who hit it with a western grip. But you would think that must people who use the k factor racket would hit more flat strokes

if he is 3.5, then i am -3.0

What is odd about hitting a western forehand with a k-factor? What made you think that racket is for flat eastern handed people? I don't think rackets are designed for a specific stroke. If anything, they may be designed for specific playing styles.
