View Full Version : semi-open stance problems

10-23-2007, 04:31 PM
Hello, I currently hit a open-stance forehand with a semi western grip. I would like to have a semi-open stance but I have tried many times without avail. Are there any tips that would aid me in this problem. And does the power come from body rotation(open) or forward weight shift(closed/neutral) with this stance. Thank you

Technique for open, semi-open, neutral and closed stances are indeed different with every grip. Certain shots are possible and others are very low percentage.

So what problems specifically are you having ?

What body physics apply to semi open that also apply to open stance. any tips on how to make the switch. there is no specific problem. Any advice is appreciated!

You already created a muscle memory on your stroke. The best way to adopt another stance is to drill. Have someone feed balls to you without you worrying about the returns.
