Here is a picture of my forehand, sorry I don't have a video. Any comments on whether I've got it right from the pic would be appreciated.

if you miss the ball, does it roll all the way down to the bottom of the hill?

hahaha yes, but eventually you stop missing

if your feet and hips are rotating to open stance for the landing,
this looks pretty good, although it looks somewhat cramped like you may
have stayed closed too long.
I like the wrist lay back and it seems mostly out front.

can't tell much from the pic.... if you have true SW grip, the contact looks late..

but if you have an Eastern, that position is almost exactly where Steffi Graf makes contact.

Looks a lot like Steffi's, doesn't it.

Northern New England somewhere. My guess would be NH.

From the angle of the picture, it seems like your hitting slightly late.

Vermont looks beautiful!

If you were hitting the ball at the camera then your feet are very good. That's why it looks a little cramped and late.

Pretty good contact; the only thing i would say is to have the contact a little bit further, and more hip/upper body rotation, but I understand that you are not on an actual court

It's an old timer mechanic: linear motion dictates stroke production: you basically do not rotate your body, your left hand still in front of you when contact occur. Several years ago, there is a web site: Revolutionary Tennis mention about it in a great deal. It work well by the woody tennis racket time (increase contact time) but obviously now, it's obsolete.
