    Real 4.5 match play

    I need to see some grind it out rallies where they're not getting open court. Maybe a second serve or a backhand at some point? They have some good strokes but I can't really evaluate their game from highlights.

    What do you think about the evolution of sport science with regard to Federer?

    Ever consider that maybe it's the ginormous amount of money that they've made? Federer was probably the first in the history of the tour who could afford a personal 747 with a full training team, medical staff and chef etc. He can literally fly from city to city with an entire crew, a hyperbaric...

    One Handed Backhand vs Two Handed Backhand

    I keep my off hand on the throat to preload tension. If I get jammed with a ball I'm not prepared for I simply block it high with my left hand. It helps obviously that my old 2 handed backhand used a semi western grip so grabbing the throat has the same face orientation that I'm used to.

    One Handed Backhand vs Two Handed Backhand

    I can hit out breaking ball off my cross court 1hbh that is much harder to reach as compared to my inside out forehand. My backhand may be doing slight less 55mph vs 60 mph on the forehand but it's nasty because it's going to push you deep into the alley. I trained the crap out of my inside out...

    One Handed Backhand vs Two Handed Backhand

    I use the same grip on both sides. It saves me a lot of time.

    One Handed Backhand vs Two Handed Backhand

    Heavily right hand dominant players will almost always hit crap 2h backhands. I spent 3 years hitting weak 2 handers. The first time I got serious and tried to rip a cross court 1hb it was like magic.

    Puncture marks are visible on both Rafa's knees

    If his knees required draining at this event(based on lack of recent playing) and the softness of the clay then this might be the last rodeo. There's no way his knees should be that bad off with just 2 tournaments on the books in 8 months. His total court movement was less than Thiem's one match...

    Puncture marks are visible on both Rafa's knees

    Science has come a long way in the last decade. I will say that clay is easier on the cartilage but harder on the quad tendons. The cartilage is what wears out... so maybe his dedication to clay is paying off over the long haul.

    Swing Vision AI line calls and Analysis

    @swupnil indicated to me that a couple of new features should be coming in 7.5 so I was curious to see if they made it into the final build.

    Swing Vision AI line calls and Analysis

    I noticed 7.5 came out yesterday. What improvements did you release in this build? I'm still trying to decide what the cheapest possible route is for me to get an apple device(I hate giving them money).

    Tips for not destroying the body on hardcourt?

    First, stop using NSAID's. They destroy cartilage. There has been a lot of research done in the last 10 years and your body needs inflammation to restore articular cartilage and tendon/ligament. Tylenol if you absolutely need something or the IPA option... I indulge multiple times per night in...

    4.5: Josh v Scott

    I'm not saying that you should remove all topspin but you need to drive it directly at the corner without hitting up on it unless you're late and the ball has already fallen too much. If you're in the court to hit a short ball then your goal should be to take away time. An arcing topspin ball is...

    4.5: Josh v Scott

    You're not going to win many matches against any opponent unless your forehand is able to penetrate the court and drive them off of the baseline. I'd start every match with some exploratory balls to figure out the conditions(ball quality, temp, humidity, wind) and then try to decide what type of...

    How long shall Nadal continue to win RG?

    Everyone needs to remember that Rafa is riding high on 6 months of vacation. If he restricts his play to Clay and grass then he might look like this full time for the next few years. Old knees don't like the 6 month hard Court season.
