    How to stop the excessive take back on forehand

    Try and mimmick the forehand while holding your right elbow with your left hand. In order to have a compact takeback, you should always be able to do that.(touch your right elbow with left hand) Once you get a feeling of it, drop the left hand. :) This is the best advice I ever had on the...

    Words of wisdom

    When a rainbow appears vividly in the sky, you can see its beautiful colors, yet you could not wear as clothing or put it on as an ornament. It arises through the conjunction of various factors, but there is nothing about it that can be grasped. Likewise, thoughts that arise in the mind have no...

    Which country produces the most, best tennis players (ATP)?

    France by a large margin ! You cannot produce slam winners (it is an anomaly), but a great tennis country can produce many good professional players IMO.

    Nadal turned away by restaurant says Chris Hoy

    Nadal, Brad Pitt, no matter in my mind and probably theirs. Why would they kick out another human being from his well-deserved (and probably booked) table ? Is Nadal really someone more deserving than the guy who farms or drives a truck for a living? I'm sure he does not think that way...

    Who is the GWOT (Greatest waste of talent) on the ATP?

    Stretching thing a bit... Mansour Bahrami! This guy was a self-taught player who never had a coach. He hold his first racquet at the age of 13, so late for a potential pro. He also spent some time as an illegal refugee in France, sleeping in the streets. Between 1978 and 1980, Iran forbid him...

    Fitness of Federer

    Came back from Rotterdam. Zverev is the real deal !

    Hi, This is my first thread here. I went to Rotterdam yesterday and saw the match between Zverev and Monfils. Even if Monfils was the better player overall, Zverez has convinced me that he will be a GREAT player someday. Here is why, IMO. His technique on both the forehand and backhand has no...
