So pretty much the general rule is that there is no order to how these movements happen, but that they will happen as long as you don't try to force anything? I'm used to teaching younger children who need steps 1, 2, and 3 to hit a forehand or it's all a big mess, so to hear that there's no given order to the pronations and wrist deviations on a standard forehand is weird to me
IMO there are at least three completely different types of forehands with semiwestern/western grip:
1. Flat FH
2. Topspin FH (WW FH)
3. Hard topspin FH
Which one do you want to talk first?
