    haha :) ... yeah, or the pointy thumb or racquet follow through or other stuff, but it felt good and is 'video friendly', I think.

    I have posted 2 videos you tool.

    Honestly, you are the best here at making yourelf look like an idiot - in video and in text.

    Please show us "all those threads and posts". Last time I checked I made 1 - last year.

    Props for calling someone a tool, made me all tingly with 90s nostalgia.

    Yah, because if I want to make point it'd be way better to show my form and use my credentials as a USTA certified nobody then use videos of one of those lame pros like Federer, Djokovic, etc. or pass along tips from popular teaching websites.

    I swing at the ball. Sometimes it goes real good. Makes me happy. And FWIW, I don't feel like I breakdown Cheetah's bh that often. What seems to happen more is that I get taken dtl on balls that I thought he'd have to be conservative on (dtl off the friggin' bh!), and that makes me angry, but it makes me get better.

    If I can see it, then I can do it. If I just believe it, there's nothing to it...

    So seeing the pro do it on Youtube isn't sufficient? I'm not smart enough to rhyme my response.

    Just me personally, but I think someone saying that they slept with your wife or gf is way more insulting. I mean everybody's been bageled before and will be bageled again...except for Dennis because he doesn't play usta.

    Providing a link of a pro doing something and giving your interpretation of how/what/why they're are doing is the same as posting a video of you doing what you're preaching? Ok, that's good to know.

    Btw not you personally, that is a statement directed towards this thread in general.

    Well, just for fun I thought I'd post an old wall hit video. Eh, why not *shrug*. Most of the 1HBH's are near the end of the video. It's only a couple of mins of torture though. lol quick fun vid

    Go search..many have seen my vids. Ill sum it up for you:

    Once again, I live in Orlando FL. I have seen where you said you come to FL or were planning on it. Come on down boy. We can film the before and after and see how aggressive you are in person.

    I have a feeling you will be a little giggling wreck of nerves. Stop mouthing off on here unless you act the same in real life.

    It's been age since I'v posted here and kinda lost interest. I do know when I hit with Jolly years ago, I would say at that time he was a solid 5.5 player. Not sure about now.

    Why did you have to edit it?

    It is OK to think I am a d-bag and a racist.

    my backhand filmed about 3 years ago. probably looks more or less the same now, except I got quite a bit fitter physically since then

    Your bh looks nicer now. More balanced and stable I think.
    You've grown a lot in 3 years.
    thejackal is tall and built now. Imposing looking. You can't tell from his photos.

    You came in here typed in bold and came at me. Dont front like im sensitive for calling you out. You are a clown on here but nice in person? Great. Be cool on here, and i will treat you with the same respect. But dont quote somebody, attack them(while being wrong) and then backpedal. Thats what kids do.

    Of course there are links. I just do not have a 1 hander so why post in this thread? Look for goldeneagle tennis on youtube. Feel free to add me as i will be posting more vids. I also have cool footage from the SEO last year on there.
