    How does he create such speed? Is it his physical strength combined with technique, or what? I understand his racket (PD+) probably adds 10mph, but still, it's amazing. I also noticed he doesn't bring the racket back very far, he just tosses it up, brings it back a bit and smashes it. Interesting technique.

    You can do it too Jay, you just have to realize that "there is no spoon"!

    As long as he drops his racquet to the backscratch position then how he brings the racquet up doesnt really matter. The real power is from his legs. Its almost about 3/4ths of a full horse stance.
