To clarify, I am referencing the FuzzyYellowBalls coaching video:

We start the video with me in the trophy pose. My knees are fully bent and the weight is equally distributed on the balls of each foot. From this position, I push off my legs up and into the tennis court.
So I think everyone can agree that we need to get to the "racket drop" position where the knees are bent and weight equally distributed on the balls of each foot.

From that point, there is some leeway on how we push up off the ground -- either push off leading leg or both legs.
