    Serving inst. video

    I always hate it when posters disable comments on their videos, so maybe we can get some good discussion on it here.....and maybe we can thrash it up a bit as they must have been scared of.... He does make a few good points, but if Murray's serve coach, why didn't he get him to do tip 3 much...

    ByeByePoly...put this up for you and others who don't see how the hand starts working across well before contact.. starting at 29secs and more clear from 30-31...even with the mighty Fed straight arm Fh. This is the video that Fitzel provided that even forced him to admit it.

    ATP blocking use of Video....

    How do you Coaches and players feel about the ATP blocking coaches from using pro player match video to share Coaching ideas, tips, and theories? I've heard Gimelstob has said that it was due to too many unqualified coaches teaching on Youtube and that the ATP wanted to limit it to those...

    Attacking Moon balls

    Poking the hornets nest, I thought I'd bring this up again after watching Chang beati Lendl on the way to his FO championship. I pulled it up to look at the underhand serve point again, but also saw the part I'd forgotten where Chang was cramping so bad he resorted to moonballs to stay in the...

    relationship of Flip and lag?

    One article claims, "The so called lag (is) happening as a consequence (of) the flip" and oddly the same article claims "The idea that players consciously create "lag" is an illusion". Isn't this an odd pair of comments for one article? If the lag can be a consequence of the lag as depicted...

    Can you see the bow?

    Can you see it? or is the bow just another tennis myth as some are now claiming?....While I claim the bow we can see here works more like the bow of the pole on the pole vault instead of an archer's bow, it is a bow none the less. Look at the moment when it clicks over from 36 to 37 secs Is his...

    Slice Backhand

    a quote, " There is one key element that bridges the gap between old and new for the slice backhand......Tomic keeps his hitting arm straight before, during and after contact. That’s critical for a great slice at any level." Anyone find this to be critical at any level or a bridge between old...

    More nice Fh vid by toly

    Notice several nice things you can see from this angle and speed. See how right before contact, you have the hand/ball/racket head relationship triangle (finding the ball) as she starts to tighten the arc of her swing more to bring that last big of accel into contact, then you can see how the...
