both sides are kinda wristy, it might help you flatten out the ball by using less wrist and more legs.

solid.

Yeah. My legs are what holds back my serve.:neutral:

You need more balance and less fawn jumpy energy.
Get to the ball, set feet, then hit. Concentrate more on shoulder turn.
Watch vids of AussieOpen players and watch their balance and economy of movement. Try to be less jumpy. That would add weight to your shots.

That started after Orange Bowl... It keeps me from falling asleep.

guys cut the OP a slack... kids that age, with legs like bamboo sticks, they do move like that..... give them some time to grow some meat, the body will get stronger and more stable.

you hit good.

1 thing on the slice - give a bit more push-foward on the shot... it lacks penetration and pops up.

Your strokes look better to me than mine do, so I can't criticize. Whatever the more knowledgeable posters say. Thanks for the video. Good camera perspective. Make some videos where you're hitting full out more.

Fantastic. :)

I thought your forehands looked pretty good. Backhand was a bit off balance and didn't have enough drive/extension through the stroke. I can tell you're a good player - and it seems like you spend enough time playing to where you'll figure this stuff out pretty fast.

Everything good except slice. It's popping up with 5 ft net clearance. That's not a slice. To fix it, make the racket face less open, and thrust more downwards.

I don't mean to go off topic but I laughed at your video of you cutting that tennis racquet in half.

I had one too many Red Bulls that night... I think I filmed that around 2am... :mrgreen:

Don't lift rear foot and push off both legs on the backhand.

On forehand side try to set up deeper - more leg bend, more shoulder rotation (use your left arm more). On arm action try to smoothly extend the forearm a bit down and behind you right at the end of take back, so you get more upwards brush on the ball from the arm, instead of just relying on very narrow wrist action window

I've started doing that stupid "hold your hands one inch away from your body" thing, I thought I got away from that.
