  • Hi John,

    I've been exchaning messages with the poster who wanted help with his serve (Cailean24) and told him to send the video to you. It's Orthodox Easter in his country this weekend, maybe he is busy?

    @JohnYandell I am intereated in getting video analysis done for my 13 years old son's practice session. I have been told that you are very good person to reach out to. We are looking for good honest recommendation. I am ready to pay for your service, please let me know how can i send you the video. Thank you for your time
    John, I wasn't sure what to make of what you wrote to me yesterday: "You are a candidate for analysis of the stroke archives..."

    Can you please clarify. Thanks.
    Hi John,

    I had a couple questions for you in that thread that just got deleted.

    Specifically, which aspects of MTM technique have you found to be consistent/inconsistent with elite level technique?

    I know that's a big question, I don't expect a fully comprehensive answer, but I'd appreciate it if you could take a crack at it.

    I was wondering if you ever discussed or written about how the front foot often leaves the ground during the forehand stroke of the top pros yet their front foot stays rooted to the ground on their two handed backhands.
    just sayin',
    the front foot in FH CAN be off ground at certain strokes because it's less effective on the axis point of the stroke, and could still be maintained on the back foot if necessary.
    yet in 2HBH, the whole motion is dependent on that front foot, otherwise you'll lose balance (the axis point is more frontal because the 2 hands demand it.
    This is what I'm thinking too but I wanted feedback from a true expert. Thanks though.
    hi John, was trying to contact you through that Facebook page of TennisPlayer.net
    i was wondering whether you still do personal video analyzing for a fee?
    if so, how much? thanks, Roei (Israel)
    Yes! $250/hour or 10 hours for $1000. If you want more details we can discuss.
    Quick question related to "hitting below center": what's the min/max face angle on a TS-FH you've observed?
    Hi, I 'm coming to usa , (San Fransisco ) in 6 months

    Thank you a lot,

    Best regards

    John, to your knowledge, is there any 5000+ fps video of the contact phase for a TS FH?

    Frame-by frame analysis of those 4-5 milliseconds would go a long way in defining the size/shape of the actual contact zone/patch along the cross axis('first contact' through exit) and, by comparing a number of samples with initial ball contact on top-mains 1-5, the zone location tolerance for clean hits vs twisters. Purposely omitting bottom mains, because even first touch on M1 will result in severe twist.

    Would have put this into the thread, but I'd like to avoid getting into yet another pointless discussion with Povl and the other "hitting below center is better" folks;)

    Thx, Andreas
