    So I've just started playing tennis (few months back) after a 15 year hiatus and am now looking to improve my skills.

    So here's a short vid of some hitting. Feel free to give some tips.

    I should point out that I've been hitting for about 2h when I recorded this so I'm really tired hence the somewhat lazy footwork.

    Good hitting. It seems like you're really hitting through it; that's great!

    I'd just say your forehand has a pretty extreme grip. That's probably the reason for your awkward follow through with that extreme grip + hitting through the ball combination. But from this view it looks like it works for you.

    Try getting some of your shots from the back perspective next time.

    You look to be a solid ball striker. Thanks for the vid. Post some more, but if possible place the camera centered and behind you.

    Cheers for the comments. I'll place the camera behind me next time.
