    It's all about the finish!

    Let me give you some support here and show you that you are likely more correct than you realize. There are quite a few quality ways to finish and the phrase, "The finish shapes the shot", comes into play in knowing what type of finish you should use. You are focused on one type finish and...

    The Swivel

    I also have top national jrs and pros as clients, but you are right it isn't the same. I'm helping players on here for free while these guys are generally hyping flawed basic items as the next thing like the sham wow salesman. I don't have a problem with them doing it, and the sham wow did...

    Inconsistent Forehand

    and you see that really in that bottom graph, there are only 2-6 balls that are truly deep, past the 3-4' from the baseline mark. We can see here that easily 80%+ of the shots land well short of what is traditionally seen as excellent depth. **Also a huge factor Imo, is they don't show all the...

    Inconsistent Forehand

    I say don't miss, but if you do miss, it should be wide, trying to take your opponent off the court instead of trying to hit thru someone. You can only hit thru far weaker players or when 2 players lock up doing the same style.

    Video of lesson today

    Maybe you are right, but how can you be "Early" and have a smooth timing on your stroke. Seems you are talking about good solid timing and not early or late...

    Inconsistent Forehand

    Sure, but also, the deeper you hit, the more often you will miss long so that they don't need to move you around anymore.

    Inconsistent Forehand

    Yes, you really got some great feedback and impressive how this forum has become such an improved source of advice! I liked the 3 above best and feel what they are saying is that you need to have a more true "rally ball" from the area you were hitting. My comment would be that the reason you are...

    String tension and topspin

    and that is why it is a balancing act to find how low you can keep tension without beginning to force yourself to slow your swing to maintain control......unless protecting the arm is such a big issue that slowing the swing is worth it to protect arm health. Imo in most cases arm health is about...

    String tension and topspin

    just shooting from the hip on this one, but Imo, with the tighter tensions you can swing much faster without loosing control, thus create more "usable", controllable topspin.

    The Swivel

    Actually no, very different. First off, I don't think I ever claim to be the the first to do something. Maybe I've made that mistake along the way a few times, but the way I see it, most everything has been done before in sports like tennis, and probably by more than one person. Unlike these...

    Another take on ATP versus WTA Forehand (TPA Tennis)

    Well, you are right that the form that we now call the ATP or Timing Enhanced Fh has been in the game longer than you might expect in both the women's and men's game, but not right about the best young players, as Fed and Nadal both played early teens with a version that would fall on the WTA...

    Drastically improved my serve this summer

    good catch on the shoulder positioning, as that is a bit odd with someone doing so many other things well as you did. Imo you shouldn't just think about it as shoulders, but also the elbows....meaning notice how the hitting elbow should stay inline with the plane of the shoulders, extending that...
