    I like how fluid your strokes are (and they sound impressive!), and your footwork is solid. You have a rather loose arm.

    Very nice backhand!
    For the FH, I do believe you can coil your hips and shoulders more, and shorten your takeback a bit, it may help your timing.

    From just this video, I'd say these are technically solid, 4.0/4.5 shots.
    The limitations of wall vids are such that we can't see how you handle higher pace/spin, as would come from a live hitting session.

    Do you have any advice for developing better footwork?

    Thank you so much. Totally forgot to ask what is my level. Last critique posters said I am 3.0/3.5 level.



    Well, for me because i have a 1hbh, my comfort zone is one step behind the baseline. So I try not to be too aggressive with my footwork on the baseline. I mostly hit open stance unless I have to do close stance or inside forehand. One step behind the baseline is a different story. I do like a little kick backward with my right foot to generate a little extra power. Not sure if that make sense to anyone else besides me. Otherwise, I guess i am just young.

    very nice!

    were you aiming at all? or just randomly hitting. your legs are too straight when you coil to my taste.

    No i wasnt aiming at all, was too focus on getting the ball over and keeping the rally going.

    What do you mean by coil?

    or pivot? basically when you do backswing and you body doesn't get lower much.

    ah this kind of walling style seems normal and it really looks like awesome. I do walling like this however, on game time, I sucked!

    And I know the reasons. This walling routine is solely for solidifying your grip and swing habits, no more no less.

    Now comes gametime, you will notice 50% of the activity is footwork. I think someone here getting this experience.
