Why does it keeps on folding up, almost hitting my butt whenever I do a stroke? Any strokes, forehand, 1hbh or 2hbh. I mean, it totally folds up. If im wearing heels while playing, the heels would struck my butt.

I haven't seen anybody in person that have this yet. No one from the pros either. Their legs almost doesn't leave the ground when they do a stroke.

Does anybody have this while playing?

You should video tape yourself and post the footage.

I notice this on 1hbh players sometimes, as a natural counter balance thing. I supposed it can happen to 2hbh shots, too, but a little less.

Not sure how it would happen on a forehand, even on an open stance fh. Your left foot may rise a little bit there to counter balance, but not totally folding up.

I understand you, i do it RARELY at times on my 2hbh when the ball is really low and im approaching a shot. it is probably a bad habit dat u just developed. try hitting against the wall, Maybe it may help

Check out the Bailey Method of tennis footwork---at the site and on the web---is that what you are doing? If so you might be ahead of the traditional training curve!
