Your daughter uses both backhands and I'm not just referring to the 1 handed slice. Will she decide on just one backhand in the future? I would certainly lean toward the one hander, but then again, I'm biased.

O-M-G

You daughter has another fan. She moves her feet, she is all business. Loved how she even changed the scorecard back at the end. Like.. another day in the office. She keeps moving her feet.. I can go on and on. She keeps it up.. we have a future pro champion.

P.S. In that first video. The side court shot where the boy runs into the curtain. I almost lost it laughing. Just didnt expect it.

Congratulations. Remember Nike is better than Adidas. :)

Very impressive! My jaw dropped at the first one-hand backhand she hit. Such a young girl with a nice one-hander has to be very, very rare. Keep up the good work!

I also liked the curtain shot very much; that kid was flying.

I'm going to laugh at you if she burns out. I never understood what drives parents to make children this young compete. Oh well...

goober 11-29-2007 12:10 PM

I still can't get over how she is using a Pure Drive Roddick. That is heavier than my racquet. I feel so weak! :?

Klatu Verata Necktie 11-29-2007 12:15 PM

8 years old, and she's already got a killer forehand. Amazing! Congratulations on your little champ.

Well is it better than my parents who pretty much discouraged participation in any type of competitive sports all through my childhood in favor of academics?

I am not sure what the problem here as long as they don't over do it or put undue pressure on her. I know tons of kids that were in competitive soccer (AYSO), little league, pee wee football at that age and most of them turned out fine :???:

A child can't play tennis? What is your problem?

jmverdugo 11-29-2007 12:21 PM

I think i should learn a couple of thing from your daughter mental toughness, she is really into it and she seems to be having fun...

Goober, are you sure is the PDR? she swing it very fast and effortless...

Her parents mentioned it in another thread. A lot of forum members were very negative on it. So unless she switched to a different PD I assume she is still using it.

those 10 yrs old can't handle the slice hehe

kevhen 11-29-2007 01:00 PM

I like her forehand and she has good serve motion and very exacting in her shots and good footwork and positioning. She could beat some 3.5s already at age 8.

I just don't like parents who pressure their children. From previous posts and this, I assumed this was the case. Obviously assumptions are bad, and I may have made a faulty one here :) Apologies if this is the case.

She originally use 2h backhand, then switched to 1h, but she sometimes still use 2h to deal high ball or fast ball.

at very begining, I brought her to tennis. she liked it and had fun. so I asked her if she want to play, and explained to her that she need to be persistant whatever she wanted to learn. so we started training since then, half to one hour a day for both kids. for a period of time, they feel frustrated and bored by those training, then feel very proud when people started watching them practice. Now Nina want to practice every day after she taste the victory. but I felt she got a bit cocky.

drakulie 11-29-2007 02:32 PM

I'm surprised the "TT Racquet Police" isn't all over this being that she is using an "advanced frame" for her age. :roll:

Anyway, Congratulations! Very nice strokes!

Thanks for sharing the video.

That's something I can do to this day, hit with a 2 handed backhand, but I haven't used a 2 hander in over 3 years exept while horsing around. When I play lefty, I use the 2 handed backhand because it feels very much like a righty forehand. Your little girl has a good strategy, but she needs to eventually wean off the 2 hander altogether.

She is using Pure drive team plus. my 7 years old use PDR plus.

They both love the rackets and swing with no problem. actually my 7 yearsold play much better after switching to PDR plus from Head Junior racket. I will take some video when she finish her first tournament in Dec.
