Has a mechanical model of the ideal serve and forehand ever been put together. In golf they have a swing based on some of the best players in history, and I was wondering if anyone has done the same thing with tennis. I know many descriptions exist about the positions you should achieve are published, but it is much easier to grasp in a moving model. Also, it is very easy to just put on a tape of Agassi, Federer, and Gonzo, then start copying what they do. However, I feel like history has shown us, the best technique is yet to come. Are any people out there truly working on figuring out the biomechanics of tennis, or are they just waiting for some players to stumble upon a better method so they can study it and then teach it to the rest. Bolletieri was essentially doing a copy and paste with his players. Agassi comes along so he teaches Agassi's forehand. Flipper comes along, and we get the sonic serve. For that reason, I have always maintained a stance that Nick is just a business man in tennis attire. I doubt any guys from MIT are going to dedicate themselves to tennis, but I am sure someone with the understanding of human physiology has done some work on it. If anyone has any information or opinions, please post.
