    Seems like everyone whos brave from Jo11y to TomT has a video posted on here. So I figured I would dig up something and put it on here as well.

    Question! Would you classify my forehand as double bend or straight arm? I've always thought I had a double bend, but I swear from some of the different angles it looks straight arm. :confused:

    Also, NTRP police welcome! I already know what my rating is, so feel free to call me a 1.5 or whatever you like :)

    I apologize for the spooky music. I liked it because it reminded me of A Nightmare Before Christmas.

    Nice hitting, especially given the conditions...

    At the start of the FH takeback, try keeping your hand higher and racquet pointing upwards, like this:

    Just got back from trying it. Not too bad. The variation doesn't seem to affect my shots that much though. It did seem to help me drive through the ball a bit more, but I think that was just in my head. Regardless, felt much more natural than I thought it was going to.

    Your forehand is double bend. How long have you been playing?

    Your strokes need overall improving but what im really concerned about is the asthetics of your technique.

    Couple things you absolutly need to fix.
    1. Lose the long shorts. It makes you look 4ft tall.
    2. When you hit a forehand fix the crook in your left hand on the follow through.
    3. Work on the overall flayling of arms and legs when hitting.

    I wont rate your ntrp because i cant really do that if not watching an actual match. But your technique needs some work. You look fairly young im sure you will grow into and make some great improvements as you get stronger.

    Good point about the shorts. Next video I'm thinking much shorter....
