Sureshs got me thinking. What does this forum need now to fight the short day, cold weather tedium that approaches us more quickly than a Federer forehand? A renewed discussion on modern technique, that's what! All aspects; forehands, backhands, serves, volleys, and others; are fair game. To Wegner, Yandell, 5263, balla, Ash, and other coaches, welcome! To those who are not coaches but are interested in a lively debate, welcome as well! But please keep it civil. I don't want any bashing of others or to see anyone get banned. But enough with that: let the discussion commence!
