Hi all, I mistimed a forehand today and hit it closer to my body than usual (I usually try to hit as far out as possible) and realised that I had more power hitting that way. It was still in front of my front foot, but I think all the while I was hitting the ball too far out, when my racket starts to decelerate. Is there such a thing? I use a SW grip. Any ideas? Another thing, I've read that the contact point for an open stance is more in front of the body than the semi open stance. Is this in relation to the head, or the front foot. In my mind, the contact point should remain constant in relation to the head, but since your left foot is farther back, the contact point is farther out in front? Thanks!
