    Hey guys I just made a video of me hitting some groundstrokes in my basement. I use a soft stress ball to hit against my wall because its already cracking because I used to use a tennis ball to hit against it. It is exactly like a tennis ball in regards to size, but its just a ball of foam instead of an actual tennis ball. It bounces slower and it actually lets me hit hard against my wall.

    Any critique or advice on my groundstrokes are welcome, thanks.

    Pretty smooth an fluid!
    Now if you can find someone to play using that ball, you'd be 4.0 !:shock:
    Your 2hbh is pretty solid, your forehand all over the map.

    Cant really say much against a wall... Looks ok overall but i think u could load up the shoulders on the FH side a little more and earlier.

    Thanks. I will try to get a video of actual hitting eventually but I usually never bring a camera onto the court.

    Yeah, same here. I never have the patience to set it all up to ensure I get a good vid anyways tho.
