    Ideas for tennis camp or a tennis pro -- improvement desired

    There's a guy named Jesse Inghelram in SF who played D1 at UCSB and he coaches adults. He focuses on understanding tennis and I've been seeing week over week improvement with him.

    Fixing my volley

    On volleys, my coach recently told me that my shoulders move too much and I want to keep the body as quiet as possible. I think it's helped a lot!

    Fixing my volley

    Was the luggage too heavy because you tried to pack three of your rackets in the same bag? ;)

    Is there a way to practice forehand stroke alone?

    Sometimes I just go outside in the middle of the night and shadow swing a few hundred times because it feels good. I like the feeling of my hips turning smoothly into my shoulder.

    Why the most weird looking FH is actually the most natural

    Yo I don't understand 90% of the nonsense that comes out of this board. You're looking at the wrong things at his stroke and giving a bunch of made up names to something that's already well understood.

    What's weird about this forehand? All of the fundamentals are there.

    Feedback on how to stop these tournament double faults

    When I practice serves I warm up by making myself hit 10/10 serves in a row. These can be patty cake, snowballs, cupcakes, however soft you want to hit it, you just have to keep hitting serves until you get 10/10. If you miss one, you go back to zero. When I feel warmed up, I'll practice the...

    Howdy y'all, The drill clinic is open for business again and I've been consistently playing for the last 2 months injury free.

    Full bed Kevlar at low tension?

    Normal for winner to get fresh can of balls from loser?

    I've heard of this one, however, amongst friends usually there's fighting to use your own can and your buddy can save theirs for next time. Being gracious and all.

    Please Critique my Groundstrokes :D

    I suggest trying to hit 100 balls in a row each, for a total of 200 shots in a rally as your first milestone. Try to get the ball to land dead in the middle of the court, right on the T, and don't let it bounce more than once before you hit it. Very very important.
