Well this was taken after about 3 hours of play and 45 minutes of drills, so my legs were shot. Balance is a bit better in the previous video I posted. I would prefer to be able to hit from multiple stances as the situation dictates, but given enough time to set up, I do prefer the semiopen stance. Sometimes I stay too open.

Soderling has too long a swing for me, am trying to shorten it up for easier timing/consistency. The takeback in my last vid struck me as more Agassi than Fed, I think...like here:

Here's a real time video, with me holding the edge of the racquet face to shorten the swing:

Links to useful stuff I placed here for easy reference...

Found this video today...perhaps I do need to raise the right elbow a bit more...

Hand fed dead ball drill might help:
