    Hey all,

    I am serious about improving my game/technique as far as I can possibly go, and was wondering whether any of you know of websites which give detailled analysis/instruction of every shot in the book - Sort of an online coach.

    If any of you can recommend any of these websites, I'd be very grateful.

    Thanks (and apologies if this has been asked before).

    Vin, how much does it cost to be a subscriber on most of those sites?

    Do yourself a favor and go back and read BB's many posts - they are right on the money and best of all FREE. You can spend hundreds buying tapes, books, etc. but his stuff is better than most of the material available.

    Hi Guys,

    All of the above sites are great. Any time you can view the mechanics/strokes of the great players in slow motion it has got to help your game. It is a lot of fun to mentally overlay your swing path with theirs and try to see what aspects of their's you might be able to pick-up. I know in my case from watching the matches on TV and the clips on these sites is how weak my follow through really is. To break old habits and establish the swing path/mechanics you want, you have to go out there and work, work, work. You can't just see it and wish you could hit like that.

    Another site you might want to check out is:
    http://www.tennisgeometrics.com

    This site does not go deep into the mechanics as such but it calls attention the various grips, how to find them and other issues such as leverage. traction and the shape of the handle. Your swing path, racquet head speed and contact point can all be perfect but if you have the wrong racquet head angle it is all for naught.

    You have got to love the game.

    Thanks very much for all the useful info.

    Vin, of the websites you listed, would you say that easitennis.com was the most helpful to you?

    And who is BB, by the way? (I'm kinda new here).
