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.
Yea, but non-hitting arm aside, what is the proper method to initiate the racket turn? a twist of the forearm? a twist of the wrist? or something else?
