    You need more arm extension on that serve.

    Holy Mackrel!

    You are much better in this clip! I love the effort in you movement. Make sure you are going through the ball and careful not to swipe up too much.

    Keep working on thrust upward and forwards. Also, your non-dominant arm needs to fold back into the body for improved acceleration. Really loosen your hitting arm and let it fly.

    Folding your arm back into your body will help you not overrotate away from the ball and fall back more forward into the court.

    Nice strokes and great serve. The only thing that you could improve is the footwork.
    How old are you?

    BH needs to be hit with a little more forward momentum. almost as if at point of impact you are not pushing through the shot but instead stay a bit too upright. I noticed this in another video. FH looks good.

    now to a serious question; what are you looking for? do you have any issues that you feel needs to be looked at? when you post a vid, you will get all sorts of "advice", but try to be more specific or hit a bunch of different FH's if you think you have some FH issues, etc.

    LOL, this is what I mean. "nice" strokes don't mean much. Only feeds someone's ego. Great serve??? How would you possibly know this? Footwork..LOL, if anything his footwork seems to be pretty good. he moves his feet, so its very, very obviosu you don't know what you are looking at.
    These are the kinds of posts that will be given when someone just posts a video and that is it.

    Honestly, every aspect of my game needs LOTS of improvement. I mainly post videos for those who just like watching other people play out of enjoyment. (Me being one of them) Any advice given is taken into consideration!


    There are two serves at the end of the video if you missed it.

    We saw your serve motion.

    if this is the case, kindly ask TW to set up another thread section because this is tennis tips/instructions.

    not coming down on you, but these threads are silly. post yourself on youtube and let others make comments there.

    I really don't see the point of these vidoes. its ok if GWB is working on something and needs some advice, but these "look at me" vids are tiresome.

    I put them on private.





    I'm sorry if these videos annoy you or offend you, I just enjoy tennis and enjoy watching others play, so I thought others would like to see me play as well.

    My apologies..

    Its OK to post vids of yourself, but what is the point of a 30 sec vid?? show a good 5 minue highlite reel or actual match play (I know you play matches). But these little clips annoy A LOT of people and you know that. They and myself know the vids you have been posting are useless. Try to read my entire post to you and comprehend what I am saying. You tend to miss the point.

    really? these 30 sec vids are what you like to see? ok, that is fine. But most of us would like to see something else. we have seen countless video's of GWB and they are just nothing but a waste of bandwith at this point. YOU, should go to utube if you want to see random people hitting a tennis ball. This section is for TIPS/INSTRUCTION. If you don't know what that means, then you are just as clueless as Conquistador and Fedace.

    you seem to be confused. according to your logic, its ok to post ridiculous "look at me" video's just to serve ones ego. It has no reason to be in the tips/instruction section. what is it you don't get? odd, but why do you like watching 30 second clips of teenage boys playing tennis??

    Put these retarded clips on odds/ends. They don't belong here. There is NO tips/instruction going on here.

    let me repeat, this "look at me video" is not appropriate in this section. you are a complete tool.

    confused. police? has a crime been committed? Not sure if it was, however this thread does not belong in a tips/insruction section when all the OP wants is for people to say "wow dude, you hit so nice, great serve man, wish I was as good as you, etc, etc., etc."

    here is an idea, since you have some kind of strange man-love for GWB. ask him to send you personal videos so you can watch them in a more appropriate setting. In this setting, you can enjoy all of Kenny's shots, serves and footwork wile eating popcorn. This way, the thread/section that clearly states TIPS/INSTRUCTION will actually have clips of people seeking help isntead of, well whatever it is you like about watching these types of videos.

    unlike you, I would much rather help out another player with clips of them seeking help. guess you like the videos of people just showing off. creepy if you ask me, very creepy indeed.

    Stop complaining you even gave instruction. You need to grow up and not try to start petty conflict. I you don't care, don't click.

    Excuse me? Who the hell do you think you are? Please tell me where I said or implied ANY of the above bolded.


    I took advice from BB, a respected member on this board and also even asked for HELP on my SERVE which is TIPS/INSTRUCTION.

    I also took into consideration what YOU SAID, and I even typed that I did.

    I don't get where you are getting this "look at me" nonsense because obviously if I needed any EGO boost, I would put up a video full of aces and winners and ask for ratings and etc.

    Look at ALL my posts and threads, I have not once asked for a NTRP or NRTP whatever rating.

    Kenny,
    your vid is a "look at me" video. You stated it yourself. It had nothing to do with asking for help regarding yoour game, again you also stated this yourself. So what is the point of your video? Let me answer; look at me!!!

    You tried the OBVIOUS "look at me videos" and it was a disaster, many times. Your last line is extremely telling of you...OBLIVIOUS.

    To build hype and build up his ego...

    This is the post you are referring to.

    1. I do agree that one of the reasons I post videos are because they are requested and people enjoy watching them.

    BUT, Read in bold and underlined, I SAID I need improvement and I SAID any advice given is going to be taken into consideration

    THIS was NOT your typical "Hey heres my video I'm a 5.0" thread
