    I can't seem to ever find rhythm in doubles, AKA doubles sucks. . . . .ok it's me. but it still sucks.

    That’s exactly what makes it useful for singles player development - getting better control of your shots, getting more mindful of shot selection, developing problem solving. Developing and learning to apply wider range of tools. Meanwhile, I get what you say. And it’s ok to not play doubles if...

    I can't seem to ever find rhythm in doubles, AKA doubles sucks. . . . .ok it's me. but it still sucks.

    The great thing about tennis - it’s a deep game. Despite what they say, good level singles requires wide variety of skills and good knowledge & experience for decision making. One can play one-dimensional game given good stamina and patience, but at some point there’s a ceiling to hit. For...

    How many things are wrong with my forehand!

    There could be a hitch at low point of drop, but I don't see anything of this kind in OP's swing. I see danger in trying what you described. There's flip/slap techniques of Kyrgios, but it's not what I recommend to use. Based on who are best young players of today, so-called "next-gen FH" is...

    How many things are wrong with my forehand!

    Prep a bit late again, if you ask me. Rush "full back high" position by bounce. Now you get pushed by the ball.

    How many things are wrong with my forehand!

    @Sweatii_yetii I like your form in this video as well as early preparation. I’m with those who earlier suggested to make it work against more challenging balls - deeper, wider. As well as make it work with various intention and placement - go deep, hit CC, DTL, I/O. Hit to recover. Hit to rally...

    How many things are wrong with my forehand!

    If he starts accelerating forcefully before dropping, he’ll ruin his FH.

    Wall hitting. Over or under rated.

    Yeah I’ve been hitting the wall a ton. It can be effective for different things, but one needs to keep on-court memories and always keep in mind - wall is to improve aspects of tennis, not a complete discipline to maser. Some people stuck with maintaining wall rallies as long as possible, which...

    If your goal is to warmup shoulder - ok :cool:

    Shadow swing serves?

    When shadow-swinging, don’t forget to visualize the ball and contact and intended ball flight. Swing without contact image might bring you way off.

    Babolat Pure Storm Tour modern equivalent

    One approach to replacing XL racquets is to use models with sweetspot expanded well enough towards the tip. Try Gravity Pro, try Yonex isometric options (new VCore PRO might be a thing), maybe use some lead tape at 12 o'clock. Getting that sweetspot move 0.5" higher is not something crazy. And...

    Beginner Flat Serve Practice - Constructive Criticisms?

    I prefer to say it the other way around: racquet not dropping is a consequence of not applying throwing motion to accelerate the racquet. Even if the motion is a bit tight, and drop is shallow inititally, it can further be developed. Pushing the ball forward, whith drop, from "backscratch", or...

    Beginner Flat Serve Practice - Constructive Criticisms?

    Wasn’t FH grip and using pushing motion the main problem?

    Help on serve analysis

    Here's as far as I personally go on spin serves. Not very flexible - more of leaning back (limbo position) before leg drive, and overhead toss.

    Beginner Serve Help Day 10 - New Tossing Motion

    @will_ling_motivation one big issue with your shadow swings and actual execution of serves is slowing down here: You compromise your key acceleration phase and try to forcefully accelerate with "pronation", which should accually be a release phase instead.
