    How many things are wrong with my forehand!

    Yeah, there is something to be said for getting the hitting elbow in line with the two shoulders. You are very athletic. You will be very good if you keep working at it.

    There will be one person that will tell you to stop serving immediately before you hurt yourself. There are probably easier ways to get to the trophy position, but that is for a later time. Did you get that ball back? SpaceX would be proud. Anyway, I am flummoxed on the forehand. I do see one...

    Kick serve, or topspin serve?

    Can I please be excluded? I already have a hole in my palm from trying to remove an avocado pit with a fork. I don’t need any more trouble.

    Oh ok. Maybe Nadal and Federer had gene transplants since they were juniors. It is apparent their genetic predisposition let them hit bent arm forehands earlier in life. Different techniques. A guy making a living teaching tennis should be better than this.

    Dumbest video ever made about tennis. Genetic predisposition. LMFAO.

    How many things are wrong with my forehand!

    Currently your swing starts too low, because you wait to accelerate into contact until you have dropped your elbow to its lowest point. The elbow dropping is part of the forward swing, not the backswing. If you are trying to rip a 100mph forehand, the elbow won’t make it down very far, ball...
