She must of been 10yo but hit with great intensity and great technique using this millenium forward style that you mention (which is basically the federer FH). Not sure what her name was but I think the initials where AM, but not sure and in fact I found out later that she does go to Strive academy.
Yep shes one of our girls.Three of them were there this weekend including my daughter. They are struggling now because they are doing it right.Its just hard watching them lose to the girls with terrible technique that play to win and keep the ball in play. It wont be long and our girls will be on another planet than the other girls.When you do it right it takes time to develop. Our girls are only 10 except one is 12 but she wasn't there.
