I've received many suggestions that I should film my strokes from behind and this is my first go at it. It's definitely more informative, unfortunately it was getting kind of dark so you guys might have a bit of trouble viewing it. I recommend full screening it as Youtube's white background will only make it more difficult to see.

I'm wearing the red shorts and hat.

What's your NTRP rating? I'm guessing 4.0-4.5 .

imho

your backswing (or the lack of backswing) on the forehand is 5.5+ quality.

the alignment, plane, wrist, arm, supination, kinetic link is excellent. so smooth and loose.

i especially love the transition from backswing to forward swing. its only a small movement of the arm and wrist to get into hitting position, but i think it makes or breaks the forehand. i am sure you have never thought about it. it just came natural to you.


can u descibe for me what you do from the top of the loop to the start of the forward swing? do u actively manipulate your wrist?

footwork, backhand, volleys - piece of cake

develop a big forehand and serve, u are guaranteed a d1 scholarship

Practice with someone who seriously hits and pushes you. This doesn't show much--anyone can hit great shots off of someone who isn't near their level.

UMM.......................................... i'm sorry but you simply cannot conclude so much from this video. You MIGHT not even know what you're talking about. Now that's not saying that Boojay is not good (quite the opposite, his strokes are very good), but that's going a little too far.

Good, fluid strokes. You're not forcing anything. Nice.

the technique is a lot better than the self rated 5.0+ on this forum

thats not an opinion

its common sense

haha truth

If people are going to bash they should post a video of themselves first.

but its hard to conclude much from this video since you're partner isn't very good at rallying.

i agree.



from the movement, pace of the rally and the selection of practice partner, it leads me to believe that he hasnt been playing for a very long for time. And to have that forehand technique, it show a little talent. JMHO

a lot of players who have been playing for a long time dont have technique and rythm like that.

pushing wins, so you think this player is 5.5+? since you said that one of the self rated 5.0 doesnt look like that?

Your strokes are very relaxed and fluid. It is hard to tell a lot because the guy you are hitting with is so weak. The backhand is a bit loose, but possibly because you aren't trying very hard. Move your feet, even in practice (of course I am terrible at that).

Sarcasm on the internet is hard to detect. He's joking about how many people think they are 5.0's but never played in a 5.0 league. When in reality they are probably 3.5's

you sure snacked on a couple of those balls, that flat FH early and the running backhand pass....

pretty nice to watch

Lol pushing_wins....

I Lol'd at the fact that you said he will/could get a scholarship to a D1 college, not at his forehand, backhand, or any part of his game.

Don't take words from my mouth and turn it until BS saying it's common sense that his forehand is like Fed's (I LOL'd at that too.)

i burst out laughing at the serves, not because they were particularly bad, but because it's probably the weirdest motion ive ever seen.

OMFG my eyes are watering from seeing that other guy serve LMAO sorry dude, but when he does the toss and is bending forward for a second it's hilarious for some reason.

Heh, I'm really enjoying reading all the comments. What I find most amusing though, is that while I agree my buddy's serve is rather unorthodox (I told him that long ago), most of you who are making fun of his motion probably can't even return it.

Thanks for the comments.
