    Federer forehand code cracked

    Nice videos. I think you need to forget about hitting winners full stop. Your strokes are nice, just need to totally focus on consistency for a while. You don’t need to hit any winners at all to beat Aussie suresh. You don’t need to hit anything hard or flat or close to the line. Solid topspin...

    Can you rally 15-20 balls like Tennis_Balla(deep drives, DTM), especially at 3.5 level?

    I do wonder about 3.0 - 4.0 who say drills aren't fun but somehow playing a set of tennis where with 2 double faults every game and average rally length is 2 shots and the vast majority of your court time is spent going to pick up the balls is fun.

    Going to be watching RG within Virtual Reality

    Is there any tennis available to watch in 3D? Not just the VR simulating you watching a TV? Surely that would be the whole point of watching tennis in VR, if it were available.

    I'm adopting MEP style

    Duno about being extremely athletic. He seems a fair bit slower in and out of position than Scott. No question Topher/Ian/Mark are way faster around the court. He's not fat and can go all day, but that's a pretty low bar for tennis athleticism.

    How is average RPM and shot speed measured?

    I’d assume they are calculating off trajectory as Joe days, but that does the beg the question of what the margin of error is and how variables like wind and ball condition could impact the result.

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    I have seen him talk on stream that by UTR he's really a 5.0 level now. I think he uses 4.5 in titles a lot just to sandbag it a bit and shoot down all the inevitable naysayers there would be if he said he was a 5.0.

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    I think that's why Mark S. bought up the different regions NTRP thing. Mark beat Scott 4 and 2 in a "4.5" match, but it's really not like the 4.5 tennis from Tennis Troll's channel. I guess it's somewhat inevitable in any rating system where people don't mix enough. If everyone played everyone...

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    Scott strikes back for the modern topspin game. Pretty heavily as well, dude has serious shots.

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    I'll be very surprised if Scott loses anymore than 3 and 3. For Ian I think the desire to play up the drama is very strong so he'll very likely tank a set before coming through in the end.

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    Their should be an English word for people bragging about being in medicine on internet forums. Seems like a very common thing.

    is there any way I can measure my RPM?

    Yes in theory you could do that. I have my doubts how practicable that is for the average guy with an iphone though.

    is there any way I can measure my RPM?

    I think the only way is visit a court with Playsight (or better, Hawkeye) set up.

    What is the best way to estimate service speed?

    The ball slows down a lot even by the time it crosses the net. The numbers you see on TV are measured right when it's hit. So you won't get comparable numbers to the pros by calculating the average speed of it in flight. Maybe if you're filming in 120fps with a very well positioned camera to...
