    Left eye dominance - play more 2HBH open / semi-open stance?

    2nd para was what worked for me

    Left eye dominance - play more 2HBH open / semi-open stance?

    I guess this is to compensate for your dominant eye being farther from contact than your weak eye? If you hit a righty 2HBH neutral/closed your right eye would naturally be closer to the contact point. I think this has some basis. Eye dominance has affected me when playing baseball too. I am a...

    The obvious reason junk ballers are so much better at match play than you are

    Oh yes definitely agree. Junkballers should be people who try "weird" shots like constant lobs, short slices, dropshots etc.

    Sam Groth's opinion on western forehand grips

    I tend to avoid these blanket statements like the plague. Full western is not advised for the general tennis population, sure. But different people have different body configurations and it's bound to work for some. Also wouldn't pros be terrible examples to prove this case as I would argue the...

    Nadal is massively underrated outside clay

    If variety is so important I think the proponents of this view should also support the equality of opportunity on the slam and masters surfaces, as a one-trick pony on hard is gonna unfairly skew the totals in favour of him despite being, as they call him, a one-trick pony. Slams should be 1-1-1...

    "Tennis is a percentage game". Which racquet sports are not?

    I think table tennis is too fast for people to even think about being safe. Sure there are safer shot patterns but in general you are relying on instincts and topspinning most shots as hard as you can. It also doesn't help that slow topspins will get you killed unless as a once in a blue moon...

    Toni Nadal on Rafa: “He still has two or three good years left”

    Already with the injury excuses ha. But yes I wouldn't count Nadal out - he's come back multiple times

    The obvious reason junk ballers are so much better at match play than you are

    I think it's more about the replicability of the technique and the higher margin of their shots. An underspin hack is much easier to perform and replicate than a topspin groundstroke. It's much easier to keep the ball in by opening up your racquet face and just dinking than brushing up the ball...

    Completely losing your feel every time you start practice

    I can honestly check almost all the problems above! Haven't restrung in a year, overgrip is old, not warming up, nervous... I'll try to eliminate as many variables as possible
