    Looks like you are not a fan of the straight up and down toss in the serve

    Correct. If you subscribed you would know more! Kidding.

    The path of the tossing arm motion and the path of the toss itself are both on arcs. This is how players find the contact points that balance velocity and spin.

    Speaking of subscribing, your commercials during Indian Wells were interesting. I would suggest facing the viewer if you make a "buy" next year for ads. It just seemed a little awkward. Maybe some marketing person convinced you the 45 degree angle [maybe 30] to the camera was the way to go. With the amount of respect your site earns, just face the viewer next time and just go for it man! Love having you on the boards, keep up the good work.

    Thanks mikeler. The reviews on the camera placement in the ad were definitely mixed. People emailed and asked if I was missing an ear, among other less than positive comments. Others absolutely loved it, including a few TV media types... We did get a great response in terms of subscribers.

    But what about those who toss straight up and then bend their bodies and reach out to the ball?

    Uh, they don't exist? This is why we have 65,000 clips.

    Hey, if it brings in subscribers then maybe you found the secret formula!

    Could be. The magazine itself is probably the secret.

    Trying a slightly more arced toss (towards myself) now and seems to be better

    No, I think our friendly government agencies are doing much better in that regard.

    Also did not follow why you would give away your technical secrets to everybody. I don't think you are like Google who will give everything away for free so that they can sell ads eventually.

    You're right I am not like google, that's for sure. As for the giveaway...well there is a huge bounty there still. I'd have to post all day everyday for a couple of years.

    Not likely, but I did get the shout outs that meant the most to me...from My
    son and daughter that both went to college on full D1 scholarships. :)
    Priceless!

    I agree Ash thanks, but neither of us is looking to diminish JY's shout out on
    that program. I'm very impressed at JY's new outlook to dealing with folks on here
    and expect if he can stick to it, he will see some excellent benefits for his effort.
