I looked at the one video, above. Overall, you seem stiff and the forhand motion is mostly arm/shoulder-- and that was a description of the better forehands. If you enjoy the game and really want to improve-- I believe it would be worth while to find a good instructor and work out the kinks.

I don't see any obvious flaws in the groundstrokes - you just need to keep hitting.

Your arm does not look stiff, but I do see you are hitting most of your forehand with an open stance. You need ot be using more of your core, loading up from the knees and transferring your weight from the hips up. You will get more power and spin by doing this. Loading up on your planter foot (your right foot) will allow you to do this.

Excuse me, but is that court wet? I am thinking you are having a problem getting traction. If it isn't wet, consider switching to a pair of shoes with soles that are more pliant.

Aye it's there but I did a frame by frame of a couple of your forehands and twice there's a frame with your elbow extended out and your forehand pointed almost 75 degrees to the ground and not around your body. This tell me you've lost your rotational momentum from your core and the Ww motion really is really forced.

The racquet head shouldn't drop the extreme in the follow thru, if it drops it should be at the end of your swing at the side of your body not before. If you follow the figure eight rule the racquet head only comes down past contact as the elbow is wrapping around your chest in the deceleration phase.

Don't force the Ww. This is what is causing the the awkward arminess of your swing. Present the dblbend with your core and lift and brush with the arm. However then let momentum carry the racquet through the ball and around your body.

Keep practicing. Nothing major needed just some tweaks. Kudos on your vid.

On my iPad. Don't know how to take still frames on this thing. I'll try it from work. Go frame by frame by opening your video in quick time. Watch for your elbow extended in front and the forearm and racquet at an extreme angle.

Who's that mug? You want to learn forehands from a current touring pro, not some retired rec player.

Lol, that bold calling the former swiss master a retired rec player. No one talks about wilander anymore but I think he's a great model. Kinda of a simon mentality but nevertheless a pretty damn good player.

The top two are shot from two different forehands in your short clip.

The the third is of me in the exact same point in the swing. The final picture is one frame after the 3rd. Can you see the difference? Core rotation and the wrap around?

BTW I like your 2HBH very much. Your structure is very stable with your arms and upper body....not floppy or collapsing at all.

Nice!

I think your stoke production looks pretty good. The only thing that may hold you back is your footwork/balance. It looks like you were off-balance on quite a few of those shots. Work on some more small quick steps to get in better balance and position.
