Hey, if you choose to think that "hit through the ball," "get sideways" and "manipulate the hand/racquet for ball direction" are holy secrets that only high-level pros can impart, you're welcome to think that!
For myself I feel like these are generalities which one hears frequently. The issue is translating them into correct action. Reading them on a message board, no matter who posts them, won't get us there.
Good post and right on target for these issues.
suresh calls you a nobody, & puts his faith in real pros who blah, blah.....unless it
that Pro is Stan Smith or any other pro he disagrees with, lol.
