    Am I correct in assuming that ALL pros have somewhat of an inside-out swing?

    Imo much of this confusion comes from a focus on the RH, but forgetting the hand. The swing is a great example of Dual objectives, understanding that yes, we are controlling the RH, but to do that the main focus is how it's done with the hand. The hand is the main thing that shouldn't be...

    Critique my son's serve

    excellent answer above....I'd just how his racket get too vertical at contact and as Dragy mentioned, too flat. He also needs to work on rising into the serve even if he never leaves his feet. He can just extend the legs from bent to straight to rise into contact. But can't say enough about how...

    Are all forehands windshield wiper?

    actually the basic WW aspect is simple, but I agree the different styles or versions that can spin off will add some complications to grasp....but few things are more complicated than trying to hit strong, flat and accurate.

    Zverev serve analysis

    he wants to fix that serve if for no other reason than it feels horrible to be on such a stage and suffer the yips and breaking down on International tv.

    Federer forehand deceleration of turn

    I tend to agree, but we are forced to deal with it because some argue we shouldn't talk about lag, drag, pronation or any number of techniques they claim or natural. They are not natural for everyone or all of the time, so we need to study them and know how to teach them for those who need the...

    Half kick half slice - what serve is that?

    American twist on one side and topslice on the other is what I use.

    Jeff Salzy put out a new one maybe directed at Z

    use the '>' button....guess you know that method, right? here is a vid of Z that gives a good angle.....notice as it rolls into the 1:33 sec that 33rd and 34th sec the 'hand' is moving out to the right. See how it starts under the opponent then crosses the center line as the hand moves out to...

    Jeff Salzy put out a new one maybe directed at Z

    also worth noting that 'up' can be referenced from the body position.....meaning that if you launch up at a 10-15 degree angle up & forward with your lift up towards contact, this body position creates a new perspective for upward orientation. 90 degrees direction from the body/torso orientation...

    Do you think about (precise) ball placement?

    This is a solid description of fairly advanced singles perspective. Most players never really get past level 1 tennis (the rally), Imo mostly because they are trying to do too much in the rally areas of the court, thus don't get that good at it. If you don't get good at the aggressive rally, it...

    Do you think about (precise) ball placement?

    stumbled across this old thread and this guy is probably long gone now, but he clearly didn't get a solid understanding of the hitting lanes created by Smart Targets. Just to be clear, there is nothing in the Smart Targets about hitting ( or making the ball bounce at) a certain spot. In fact...

    Jeff Salzy put out a new one maybe directed at Z

    so are you focused on the Rh, because that area you reference is where the hand has changed course and is no longer moving out towards contact, but has turned enough to be working back inward
