    Pickleball is spreading

    That's because there are that many out of shape and lame morons who wants to pretend to be Fed but find a real sport too hard so they'd rather make up a fake-mini version of it which is easy and doesn't require any running. If they get enough lazy morons together they can even pretend it's a...

    [Klippermate] Flipping the towers so as to clamp closer to the frame

    Ive done that since I inherited my already beaten, bruised and heavily used klippermate five years ago. I have had no problems and I do feel it's advantageous when doing the first six mains. #fwiw

    Why can't I get lateral spin on my (tentative) kick serve ? (With video)

    That's pretty much the definition of being confused. "an argument is sound if it is both valid in form and its premises are true" so no. This is just plain wrong I dare anyone to cue something verbally over teh interwebz to ten people they dont know and haven't talked to and get a...

    Why can't I get lateral spin on my (tentative) kick serve ? (With video)

    Since Im the one responsible for this thread-drift I'll get @Digital Atheist @Chas Tennis and @Dragy in here as well. In @yossarian 's example above I think we all agree that the instructor wouldnt talk like that. But a (hopefully) probable version would be: <-- Take your average tennis player...

    Why can't I get lateral spin on my (tentative) kick serve ? (With video)

    Where do you get that stated goal from? Are you really claiming that as a truth all through the forum? Did you read the OP of this thread saying; "I'd be glad to read technical advices." ...

    How do I get more topspin on my 2 handed backhand?

    The timing of the knee-bend is "usually" a factor... #fwiw

    Forehand Foot Positions of Choice 2021

    Ok. Of course! The answer is yes. True, but also on a heap of other variables. A BIG heap of other variables. I think you are overly fascinated with muscle-length. (see, for example, the summary of this article https://journals.physiology.org/doi/full/10.1152/jappl.1999.86.5.1445) I also...

    Does have a John McEnroe-like Service Motion put More or Less Strain on the body?

    Could you please show how and/or confirm that your knees hurt when doing a "regular" platform-stance leg-drive? #curiousity.piqued.again

    Does have a John McEnroe-like Service Motion put More or Less Strain on the body?

    Since Ive already posted on this above (https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/does-have-a-john-mcenroe-like-service-motion-put-more-or-less-strain-on-the-body.684015/post-14804476) I might as well add some more. What he does with his shoulder eg. externally rotating it before...

    Does have a John McEnroe-like Service Motion put More or Less Strain on the body?

    Hmm... The good thing about the JMac serve is that it requires little flexion/extension of the back and practically no "rotation" (I am assuming you mean twisting? aka rotating the shoulders one way and the hip the other? since everyone can rotate their spine by spinning 360 degrees) JMac's...

    PINPOINT or PLATFORM stance for Serve?

    Ive always been a huge McEnroe fan so I learned/copied that serve as a kid. I can still bang out a decent copy on a hot day but I do have to follow it to the net for some reason. ;)
