    Strange Injury

    Well I experienced big changes in my tennis since I went to Salzenstein, and the changes wasn't rough or difficult as you're saying to me that it would be. The transition from my old way of hitting to the new was smooth and seamless as many people of all ages have said how easy it was to...

    Strange Injury

    The cause of the sore shoulder issue I was having was poor buggy whip technique and it was corrected by Salzenstein. Once my technique had been corrected, my shoulder started to correct itself and come right and within 2-3 months became pain free. The former coach I had didn't give me...

    Have you ever seen this before?

    It is too awkward with both hands on the racket to drive a double hand forehand, I don't see the sense in swinging through the ball all double handed like Bartoli, There's not very much flexability in the wrist.

    Strange Injury

    I was under national coach supervision each week in training. But what concerned me with this coach is that that coach puts athlete performance first before safely. (as in the case of teaching me the buggy whip forehand) and not explaining what i needed to know in order to make sure I do...

    Strange Injury

    i was wondering also. since the coach did shift my one hand backhand finish down abt 2 feet lower from the normal place instead of leaving my backhand finishing up high, and for all I know changing my backhand to make the swing more flatter like that that may have also contributed to this kind...

    Strange Injury

    I was taught the buggy whip forehand by a quick 5 second demonstration of the coach swinging the racket all around the top of his head and told me to just do that to buggy whip the ball, swing it around the head like a cowboy swinging a lasso rope. That was his way of doing it. That was...

    Strange Injury

    Might be golfer's elbow, because it does make the arm feel weak when there's pain, but the pain is felt mostly along the top of the outer side of the arm and shoulder area so it dosen't sound like tennis elbow cause the pain is not in the forearm below the elbow but starts from the outer...

    Strange Injury

    My coach changed me over to this new Pacific string, it's very thin and very hard. Hasn't broken yet, had this string for six months. Coach says its a string pros use. About two months into using this string i slowly started coming down with a sore shoulder and arm. So I suspect it might be...

    how to deal with a bad coach?

    Oh I had a coach exactly like that. Some coaches run tennis boot camps like Ramsey run's hell's kitchen, and that 's the way some coaches like to do things, because they like to make things difficult and do things the hard way to get the best results even though i don't approve of verbal...

    how to deal with a bad coach?

    In His condition that his back is in he shouldn't even be attempting to hit kick serves if he still wearing a back brace. He should let his back fully recover or he could do his back in and slip something out and might not straighten himself back up. You do not need to arch your back...

    Opponents that surprised the hell out of you...

    Yep, it's the tennis that does all the talking. Not how they look, who knows, they may do fitness training as well or may a well seasoned player even though they might not look it. Or may have had coaching lessons under a top level coach. Never underestimate the opponent.

    HELP, problem with Service toss during Windy day, to all TW experts

    If its really strong wind like galeforce strength, the ball will be curving sideways), then it becomes dangerous to swing the racquet around in that, as the wind can jerk the racquet violently in the middle of the swing and can cause you to strain or pull something.

    HELP, problem with Service toss during Windy day, to all TW experts

    The worse kind of wind is that blustery wind that just swirls around the court in little circles. its hard to time the hit when you are in the middle of all these little mini tornados.
