Nice video, I'll ignore the fact that you are a Nike fan. You have nice strokes, but do you practice point construction? I would work on turning your body more for your slice backhand, you're coming across the ball more than through it as far as I can tell.

I have a new found respect for you my friend. I might fly out to cali so we can hit and play a few sets if you loosen up on your ground strokes. your forehand looks pretty stiff.

Good video overall. I am still angry that you didn't show anything from the back of the court(behind view), but it's all good.

BTW on your slice backhand bend the knees more. On the backhand volley you let the racquet drop WAY to far.

above the court behind the ad side baseline is a good view for college videos. thats what I did for mine.

Check out his backhand, tiny backswing but still great power.

backhand looks better than the forehand. though you like to run around that and hit the forehand, it looks like. Forehand looks little bit jumpy, could be little better on the balance. You have a very nice racket head speed, and thats a plus, since you can't teach that. I think better conditioning will probably help you as well as better Core strength. Your feet doesn't move as crisp at the end of long rallie and you seem to be getting caught with your feet not being in the right place and losing control somewhat...

Drills are a good way to help, but make sure your shots are varied. Use the angles, I don't see enough of this these days with college players (save for angled volleys, and even then). You're an aggressive player, so you have to change where you hit your big strokes depending on your opponent. If your opponent has a better forehand, pull him out wide on his forehand, and then hit to his backhand. It's pretty elementary stuff, just play it out in your head before a match.

Except for the fact his forehand is better than his backhand and his backhand technique is different. Similar footwork though, seems too on edge and not "layed back" enough (or not loose enough, IMO...).

technically my backhand has always been better, but i am more comfortable hitting my forehand. i agree on the balance and footwork, any tips to improve?

Quick feedback:

Fundamentally I encourage you to work on improving at matchplay. Agree on the point construction feedback.

Your technique is decent; I like your 1HBH drive.

As for do you stand a chance - you have potential. I see plenty of kids who can hit like you or better though. The real indicator is: Are you getting to semis in tournaments against quality competition? Mentally are you able to do so in a variety of conditions where seemingly everything in addition to your opponent is working against you?

I see you as an above average hitter with potential from this video.

Other technical points I'd suggest you improve when you get a chance:

1) Your footwork/movement - you seem to be bouncing all over the place - I'd encourage you to work on efficiently covering the court. Your speed is decent though you seem to expend lots of energy doing so and could get better at that.
2) I'd recommend more of a knee bend and lowering your butt on your forehand; seems to me like you're standing straight upright on many if not most of the FHs I saw.
3) Agree on BH volley; looks too wristy to me.
4) For your 1st serve - I'd encourage you to toss the ball more infront of you and step into the court; seems very vertical to me today; you could get more power out of it that way and improve your placement.

A decent first effort, though I'd encourage you to update it and do another one before you send it off to college coaches.

Good Luck! K_I

David Johnson is a good player, plays county level, for the county of Surrey just outside London.

No where near the top national boys though.
