    No, I don`t mean that. Two of my students already got killed by my forehand. It is a killer forehand.

    Anyones forehand is going to be killa if they're playing lower players. Since you said you're killing your students with your forehand, why not play someone your own level? Then it might not be so killa after all lol/....

    When it is on, it is ON. When it is not, it is not a pretty sight.

    Ya I like passingshots. U don't really have to get depth on them, just gotta get that angle or be able to dip it low with lots of spin.. Sometimes I throw a slice into the player and they'll net the volley cause of the different pace/spin.. better players will of course putaway any slice lol

    I have one if I'm on, and it usually is now so thats alright. But it is my main weapon when its on and causes the most damage and helps me out the most. Playing people who are better then me. most anyway.

    Yes, I have it. :p

    It is not hard to do if you do not force it and you simply meet the ball.

    Funny you should throw X's name on there because my forehand is flat and fast like his. X is a perfect example of a flat forehand that's explosive, but you have to watch out because you'll be hitting that net more than usual if you always hit X-man type forehands.

    Who have you killed, Mr. Bungalo, with your killa forehand? And does it make a loud BOOOOOOOM sound like a shotgun, or like a pellet gun? :cool:

    No, don't I have it or at least only have it 50% of the time which is not good enough. I did rifle one past the netman in doubles the other night and totally took him by surprise as I rarely rip 80-90mph forehand winners but that one felt good!
