I was hitting with a friend and my forehand has a chronic issue with going long a lot. I used to use a short loop takeback but it wasn't helping. I was trying some tweaks when I tried the Soderling forehand which features a straight takeback. I used it and on my very first forehand, I hit a winner right on the left single sideline. I kept with it and not only was a hitting really solid forehands, I felt less tired. I'm a straight-backer for good. Anyone had this experience?
