    His 7.0 rating isn't NTRP. He's from France and their rating system is different. Old video, already been posted and discussed on here and the owner of that video came on TT to explain as well.

    I don't understand how you can arm the ball when you have your whole body moving forwards.

    On top of what has already been said, the guy in the video played mid-level DI tennis.

    Want to see some "all arm" swings? Go watch some women's 2.0/2.5 league some time.

    This dude would beat 99% of players here. Most people are too harsh here when videos of legitimately good players post videos.

    NTRP = French NTRP / 2 = 7.0 / 2 = 3.5 - .5 (for SoCal Vietnamese) = 3.0 (all arms)

    OP, this is a self-promoted thread. are you in the video?

    I am pretty ok with my topspin but I never tell anyone my level is. I knew lots of people are better than I am. I am playing tennis for fun only...

    he has strange technique...very compact....is it a more modern technique to follow through on the right leg like he does? Or is it a flawed? He has good footwork though imo...
