    Serena and Sakkari match highlights! Try to get the full match too!

    I agree. Also, pressure gets a lot more intense in a 3rd set as well and she hasn’t handled that well the past few years. So she needs to put everyone away in straight sets.

    Serena and Sakkari match highlights! Try to get the full match too!

    Just saw her post match interview. She said losing to Sakkari was “like dating a guy who sucks and you don’t know why you just don’t get rid of him”. She also said she should have won the match. However she was close to losing 6-0 in the third so I’m not sure how she sees it that way.

    Serena looked really slow in the highlights. She’s not going to win a Slam in that kind of shape. I think her body type is not ideal for playing at 38.

    That page is updated now to not show the errors, but there are probably a lot of pages that will have those in the background. Does this affect your ability to view the video?

    relationship of Flip and lag?

    Nice observation about Del Potro versus Dimitrov. Like you observed, Dimitrov has the "flip" where the racket goes from pointing to the right side and then "flips" backwards to where it is almost pointing to the left sideline (not quite that far but a really extreme change in direction!). With...

    Modern Forehand Relaxed Wrist

    Look at the rainbow like path his racket moves through: http://www.hi-techtennis.com/tw/forearm_rotation.php The only way the racket does that arc is if the forearm and hand are turning. However, this isn't the only motion. His entire arm is lifting upward and his shoulder is pushing and...

    Modern Forehand Relaxed Wrist

    I would think about it a little differently. Instead of thinking about the wrist, think more about your forearm muscles. You want your forearm muscles to rotate the ball - like turning open a tightly closed jar. With your hand rotated downward a bit on contact, use your wrist and forearm...

    Trying to identify player

    Adrian's arm is bent a lot more than that - thanks for the suggestion though. Who knows - this guy might just be a hitting partner for Steve Johnson and not actually play on the tour.

    Not Krajicek and not Falla - I know that for sure just based on the technique. He was hitting with Steve Johnson if that helps at all. Here is a better look:

    Not Falla, good guess though. So he was hitting with Steve Johnson. Here is a better look:

    Modern Forehand Relaxed Wrist

    You don't want a "relaxed wrist" through contact. That's just not an accurate concept. You will get no bite into the ball and you will lose the drive and lift from the arm. Check out Raonic here. Definitely not a "loose wrist" through impact there. Instead he is starting to turn his hand and...
