I think the bigger hitters don't go to the left as much as he does. They seem to be throwing their weight towards 1 oclock-ish (11oclock for lefties). More weight forward and thru and they use more ground forces.

even murray here who has a big rotation and ends up totally on the left seems to still have weight going more into the ball and then just continues around. His right shoulder is really going into the ball here before the weight swings around. That's what it looks like to me.

Now look at OP's swing. It looks like his whole momentum is going to 11 or 10 o'Clock before he even makes contact.
Thanks Cheetah. Wow, the sense of speed you get from those videos is just amazing.

Haha thanks, but I really don't think I could. Some, but probably not a lot.

I chose DIII for the academics. Realistically I know I'm a student first and then an athlete. I'm not going to go to some mediocre school for tennis and gamble with my education.
