    The music was extremely annoying. It loses a lot with it. The tennis was good just make sure you think of your target audience if this is a college video.

    I think a college coach would rather see a video of a couple of your matches rather than a practice session...JMO

    Haha yeah you had some really exaggerated split steps. I used the same song, but only for a short clip in the intro. Personally I feel that you can use music in the intro and credits, but otherwise it should just be hitting. If you look at my sig you can see how I did it.

    Pretty nice hitting though.

    Soufiane,
    First, I usually don't comment on these, so take it for what it is worth ...

    1. Your footwork is extraordinary ... both in a good way and a bad way. First, I would love to have all that energy (I'm alot older). Most lack footwork (some are lazy) to consistently get into the hitting position. You do not have that problem. You, however, go the other way ... the split step and hop that you do expends too much extra energy. You will need to become more efficient with your energy ... especially when you get into longer matches.

    2. I like your groundstrokes. One thing I think you can work on is your backhand. You tend to open up a bit as you stroke the ball. Think about driving more forward towards the net as you complete your stroke.

    Anyway, best of luck.

    Nice vid, music not appropriate for a college video IMHO (nice track but not sure if the recruiters will appreciate gangsta..)

    You're like a little jack rabbit with the pronouced split step...is that natural for you or is that something your coach has emphasized?

    I'm a college coach at Drew University in Madison, NJ. Some exaggerated split stepping, but some nice looking shots. I would say music with curse words, probably not a good idea if its a college video. Also, match play is much more important than just watching a hitting session. Although, I wouldn't hold it against you.
