    You improved your swing speed a lot which makes the ball move faster.

    Thanks for noticing. That was one of the things I worked on.

    To me, the hitting is good in both. However, at the beginning of the second vid I do remember thinking that maybe something about your forehand seems a tad better. Anyway, only a few scattered clinkers here and there. For the most part some nice stroking, imho.

    It would be fun to hit with you. Although I'm sure you'd kill me in a match, I think I could stay with you in practice rallies. :)

    I think you're pretty good in both videos. Dude, that is a very pretty 1HBH.

    Here is a frame by frame sequence of one of your forehands. The three immediate things I noticed that you might want to reconsider is the 'spin of the racket around the elbow', the balance of the upper body before and at impact and a possible torquing of the knee. All those three items could potentially cause injuries. Also the waste does not rotate enough instead you push yourself up with your legs.

    Thank you!

    Yes, I'm really fortunate to have steady partners who are at a higher level than me.

    Thanks so much, corbind. I am suffering from really bad tennis elbow at the moment so I think I was running around my backhand a bit in the latest video, but normally it's my most reliable stroke.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do that! I just read on another thread how many steps you go through to make these progression photos. Thank you very much for doing that for me.

    I really appreciate the advice, as well. I think the spin of the racket around the elbow is definitely something I fix quickly. The rest I'll need to work hard on.

    Thanks again!
