    More shoulder turn.

    Also, just something I noticed...

    When you did more of a WW finish, and came 'up' on the ball, your shots consistently went deeper and with more spin.
    You seemed very inconsistent when flattening out.

    Your skills are pretty much exactly like mine.. i started playing tennis in may/june..

    Choosing the forehand as often as possible..
    Im not the guy to ask, but i think you hit okey..

    The guys in the blue has some really ugly moves.. looks like when i force my girlfriend to play with me .... :)

    nice stroke but very retro.. looong looping backswing on the forehand, you don't see that much anymore.

    That takeback...is sort of weird.

    Your racket angles off at 45 degrees to the right. o_O

    interesting observation - except for three shots, your balls kept landing on the deuce side (or in the middle). by the way, those three shots were an overhead and two non-playable balls. is this a conscious thing or what??

    It was probably b/c he was a lefty so i was trying to hit to his BH side more often. Good observation though, I didnt catch that.

    it actually looks alot like a WTA style swing

    OP, with your 1hbh, try to unit turn without involving the arms
