I'm in my mid-30s and I picked up tennis about 1.5 years ago. I would love to hear some advice to improve my groundstrokes. I have attached short video from last Friday njght ...forgive me for the poor quality.

you seem to be arming your strokes a little. could benefit from more rotation around your core on the forehand.

will give you a lot of easy power and will take a lot of stress off of your arm.

i'm not a coach though.

OP pay attention to your footwork.... splits, adjustments.... there are none.

put them in your game and you will look like a lot more legit player...

yeah shots are armed.... but who doesn't after 1.5 years lol.

have fun..

new players sure can benefit from exposure to a good coach. Ask the players in your area who the best coaches are.
