    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    Its the way you actively lead with the elbow to begin the swing. So in a modern forehand you turn the shoulders, the arm lags behind, then you pull/swing forwards. Its more like dragging the arm. With the next gen you are actively moving the arm through the body. This is more like throwing...

    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    Thats just a Modern forehand, hes turning his shoulder to pull/whip the arm into the ball. The Next gen has a high degree of arm separation where youre really throwing the racket at the ball. Its a very arm heavy action.

    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    Not that many players use the Next Gen forehand in general, but I see a lot of kids these days being taught it so it might increase, but IMO its an inferior technique to the modern forehand. Felix for example is the youngest of upcoming stars and he uses a Modern forehand

    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    "Next gen" is the name of the technique, its got nothing to do with age. Its like WTA vs ATP forehand, its got nothing to do with whether youre a man a woman, or what tour someone plays on, its simply the name given to the different techniques.

    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    That is the "next gen" technique. Thats how they play. Next gen technique = Jack sock, Kyrgios, Thiem, Kyle Edmund Modern technique = Djokovic, Federer, Nadal, Murray Essentially there are 4 main forehand techniques - Classic, Abbreviated/hybrid, Modern, and Next Gen. You can say "next gen"...

    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    The next gen forehand brings the elbow through the body first. This video of jack sock is the perfect example of this. Skipping stones only refers to the way the next gen forehand works, it doesnt happen in the modern forehand. In the modern forehand the arm is slingshot round from the...

    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    This shows how close the elbow gets. Its not the bend in the elbow, its the fact this technique leads with the elbow. And as i say the simple way to understand it is to skim a stone.

    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    If you watch Kyrgios or Sock or Thiem, you can see they lead with the elbow and the elbow passes very close to the body, almost like theyre cramped. Thats the same way you skim a stone. For the Modern forehand like Nadal, Fed, Djokovic, its a much more rotational swing, that is, the forward...

    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    Its a different technique. Like skimming stones, the forward swing leads much more from the elbow.

    Stop talking nonsense about being relaxed when hitting the ball !!!

    Were not tense, or at least we shouldnt be to get maximum power. You fire your muscle to contract it but continuing to fire the muscle doesnt add power. Indeed in this chart it suggest maximum power comes at roughly 1/3 of the velocity and 1/4 of the force applied from the muscle contraction...

    TRYING to Copy Kyrgios' Forehand ?!

    Kyrgios' forehand is whats considered the next gen forehand. This is different to the modern forehand of Fed and Nadal etc.. The best way to do it is to mimic the motion of skimming stones. It is a very arm and shoulder dominant stroke. So skimming stones or throwing a sideways frisbee is how...

    What advantage does a tense muscle bring you.

    Stop talking nonsense about being relaxed when hitting the ball !!!

    Almost every single sport played at a high level has 1 common factor - relaxation. But to activate the right muscles whilst relaxed is what separates those who play at a high level, whether its football, tennis, swimming, running, baseball, boxing, golf you are at your best when youre relaxed...

    Running around every backhand and still winning

    It about positioning. When you are in the inside out forehand position, your opponent is kind of in no mans land its hard to cover both flanks. And secondly they are on the defensive. They're just trying to save themselves at this point.
