    **My Tennis Set [VIDEO]**

    Hey,
    I just got back from the bay area and a friend of mine wanted to play a set, as he had also not played for a couple weeks. I had my camcorder in my bag and set it up to catch some of the action. I am in the white shirt and ended up losing the set 4-6. I was going to upload part 2 as well, but I am past my uploading limit.
    Enjoy the vid!

    You don't want to perform a shot while running.
    For example, on approach shots you hit the ball while running.

    On approch shots, yeah, you should try and have your feet set but there are quite a few shots that can (or have to) be hit while you're running.

    Well approach shots, you really want to have a set base.

    react faster to short balls. a lot of times you let it drop and you hit a low percentage shot.

    Yeah what everyone is saying about the short balls and you don't want to take a huge swing when you are running up there.

    Run up there, stop, just brush up low to high and place it. Unless ofcourse it floats in and sits up.

    thanks for the advice guys, I should have part 2 posted within a few days. And in the future i won't post another video until i get a tripod or someone willing to film us at a better angle.

    I am not trying to bash anyone, but I usually take huge swings because its my style of play and allows me to place a lot more topspin for those short angled crosscourt winners. Unless you were aiming for drop or half vollys.

    Alright I almost forgot to post part 2 so here it is now:
    http://www.vimeo.com/888517
    I lost the set 4-6, but looking back on it I probably could have won if I could only return my partner's 2nd serves more effectively. When he floats the 2nd serves and gives me sitters I tend to over think the shot and just make errors.

    I am going to hit with another friend tomorrow morning and just got a legit tripod so I will have a new video up sometime next week.
