How do you do the jack knife?
Stop watching POT
That shot is just a basic 2BH drive.
More than enough info around on how to do those
Yeah, all that pot is not good for you. Don't they teach you that in school? =p
This was an old term used to help players feel their stomach muscles in the serve. Is this what we are talking about?
well lleyton hewitt uses jack knife too.. so its not always about POT =_=
lol...do you really think that you can volley back an overhead w/o even facing it and have it land on the baseline EVERY TIME? (tsubame gaeshi or w/e it is)
I suggest you watch clips of Safin; he has it down pat.
I haven't watched any pot (except that new ova that came out heh) recently.. is it just a jumping 2hb?
u jump with right foot (if ur a right hander) and as u jump forward u swing two handed back hand, u need a LOT of balance for this move.. but if it works, it's very useful indeed (this move was used to be my winner shot)
Reason u need balance is, because u will land with one foot and if u fall down... ur screwed
I do it with style, baby! Oh, how do you do it? You don't.
The Jack-knife bh is great for high-kicking balls usually hit up at your shoulders. You need a lot of rotational force. When you whip one leg forward and one behind you (like a jack-knife), this helps twist the trunk and generate the torque necessary to hit the shot. Besides the leg work, it is very similar to a bh hit lower to the ground.
2 handed backhand.....weight transfer from right to left leg....safin does it alot.....
I don't think so, unless you are left handed. If you transfer weight from right to left you'll lean back and hit a pretty weak shot.
