I have been having some trouble with making good contact on my forehand side. My backhand is perfectly fine, but having poor contact is becoming a major problem and my forehand has been really inconsistent lately. I've done a quick search, but none of the answers were really satisfactory... And I'll try to post up a video of myself as soon as I can, but I've been having some trouble finding a hitting partner and have been hitting against the wall for quite some time... So, for one, when is the best time to start the takeback? And conversely, when is it too late to start the takeback, so I know know when it's best to start because I won't always be able to start the takeback at the best time. Also, I use a conservative SW on the forehand with a pretty straight arm, so I was wondering what would be the best height to make contact? I've seen Nick Bolletieri's tips on this, but his take on the SW is with a pretty big double bend, which I don't do. And how far away from my body should my contact point be? I always find myself getting jammed up. Any tips to prevent this (aside from visualizing making contact with the end of the racquet)? Finally, I know there have been a few threads on this recently, but how can I better watch the ball? I've tried watching for the bounce and going to the bounce, but this makes me jam up even more. Is experience the only solution to reading the height of the bounce and gauge how much the ball will speed up (from topspin) after the bounce? Sorry for all of the questions and thanks in advance for any response.
