Don't do this! It is very bad for the ankles, even when I was watching Gael play two years ago JMac and someone else were wondering why he was sliding on hard courts and were commenting on how dangerous this is.

HOWEVER...

If you really do want to slide, when you are moving to one direction, slide on the innersole of your outer shoe. ex; If you are on the run going right and you are going to hit a forehand slice (right handed) slide on the inner arch of the right foot.

That's just how I do it when I absolutely feel like I must.

Well thats what I do but its not on purpose. And my ankles are weak too. I should wear braces.

first, ive been doing this for years and ive never ever hurt myself doing this.

second, you need to be able to run really really fast to do this, if you cant, forget this

third, you have to have great legs, strenght and good articulations.

fourth, dont try to do this. It should come naturally. well, it did to me.
