The technique I'm talking about is brushing up and across the ball, leading with the side of the racket and pulling inward and to the left.
well that might work for some but to me your description is bro science. it might work as a cue but it is not what is actually happening. but the FYB vid is not describing it all correct too. the WW is pronation and internal rotation of the shoulder. the elbow has not much to do it. the leading with the edge comes if you have a little more forward and less upward component.
BTW fed is swinging in line with the ball longer than anyone else on the tour. he is the master of extension.
