oh my god.... thank you! Usually I see videos that are crappy and you can't even see when they contact the ball. This is a beautiful clip of his backhand!

I can see the ball deform! If this video were any better I could count how many times the ball rotates.

Hey, they work for me now. I just love the second clip, it looks like he's floating if you watch how his feet are and how he lands, haha.

yeah he does seem to float on stills... also notice how his racquet accelerates sooo quick just before he hits it, and his wrist is actually laid back until AFTER contact, he follows through with pronation, he doesn't actually wrist the forehand...
