Highlights:
-The first couple of minutes are more of a warm up, so if you're not going to watch the whole thing maybe skip to the middle (like 8:00 or so)
-There are slowmotion ground strokes at 1:16 and 8:05
-Serving starts at 18:58
-Slow motion serving is at 19:11
-Match/Point play comes shortly after serving

Alright, GO! Compare, Critique, Compliment, whatever. Do your worst TTW!
Thanks for posting the vid. I enjoyed it, but would like it a lot more if you put the camera a little lower (but still centered behind you) to capture the whole court, so we can see ball trajectory and how effective your shots are.

I can't offer any critiques or technical recommendations, just a few observations. On the whole, your strokes/shots look good to me (fluid and you make good contact ... around 4.0 level? ... just guessing), but not as consistent as they might be. Your serve looks fluid, but it looks like you're foot faulting a lot. Some good approaches and volleys, imo.

I think you have a fairly nice game now with the potential to make it a lot better.

Post more vids.
