I think we can all agree Andy Roddick used to have one of the biggest forehands on the tour. All of a sudden, it disappeared around 2005 though. Let's break down the technical differences between his forehand before 2005 and after 2005. Thought it would be a fun idea since Roddick is one of the few pros who made a huge technical change to one of his primary strokes. Here is a video of Roddick practicing when he was younger (I believe this was in 2002, not sure though). I couldn't find any old slow motion videos of Roddick 2004 or before, so this is the best I could do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpZxIZx26C4&feature=related Here is a video of him after his change to the forehand. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-D32RwsD_w The first and most noticeable difference is that Roddick definitely had a much more compact take back in his earlier years. The second, is that Roddick appears to be pronating alot more in the 2nd video then he is in the 1st (although I may be wrong). If John or any other guys could join in the discussion, it would be greatly appreciated. My knowledge of tennis mechanics only goes so far.
