Just finished looking at some fed fhs and his racket turn/pronation seems similar but just slightly different than what im doing right now.
It's kind of an essay on the tennis windup. The key thing is that, in the windup, the center of gravity must go forward through all stages of the windup. And that's really hard to pick up from just looking at other video footage.

The problem is theres only 2 ways I can think of the racket turn can be completed
1. twisting the wrist near height of takeback
2. twisting the forearm?
Say you wanted to turn a thumbs up to a thumbs down.

1) You can do this by leading with the thumb. That would be twisting by wrist.

2) You can do this by turning around the elbow. That would be twisting by forearm.

I think it might be easier if you properly visualize the non-hitting arm as we discussed before. The hitting arm will usually follow in kind after that. You were really, really close that time, but the mismatch of the non-hitting arm and the hitting arm threw off your timing.
