    The beauty of pendulum take back ( forehand )

    WTH are you calling me out for? This thread is the definition of the blind leading the blind. Post #123 curious old forehand, you would be mad to say this style isn't working better for him and he thinks he has a better feel for it. Talk about loops and ATP pros all you like, doesn't make a...

    The beauty of pendulum take back ( forehand )

    I think this is the best forehands I've seen you hit @Curious Tsitsitpas uses his left hand to change grip and thats about it. Getting tired is hosh tosh.

    Artificial Grass with Sand Surface...

    Never used to like it cos the old buggers would slice low on it over and over but used to it now. They are good and quick, soft on the knees compared to hard court and when it rains you can often still get out there as soon as it stops. Also easy to maintain compared to clay, clubs just cannot...

    4.5 to 5.0 path for women

    I won't tell you it's impossible or possible, but what it looks like is beating and somewhat dominating every person you play now in 4.5. So what will help you do that? First thing should be a dominating serve that gets you lots of free points. As you age chasing down balls becomes less viable...

    Tennis does not change. 100% of Vic Braden's Tennis for the Future (1977) applies in 2020

    I think if you watch Kyrgios his timing is basically start with weight on back foot and move forward from there, as opposed to most players start with weight on front then shift to back foot then front foot again

    Tennis does not change. 100% of Vic Braden's Tennis for the Future (1977) applies in 2020

    That is exactly what vic advocated, hitting the ball at the apex. While John says many players may be rushed by that it is better than the other extreme you see sharapova etc in an ultra high toss or alternatively, up together and pause in trophy which he explicitly said wasn't good. Kyrgios is...

    1HBH takeback/backswing: Straight arm or bent arm?

    He is saying it is a semi western, the v between his thumb and first finger is sitting right on the edge of bevel 2 and 3. Some people call this strong eastern

    RF97 Hybrid set up ideas

    So right now have VS Gut 16G mains and 120mm Alu Power crosses, marketed as Alu Power Feel. Feel plays like rough but a bit more consistent through its life and less notching into the gut. With 16 gauge gut gives it a little more control and a little less lively than 17 gauge. Was strung at...

    Alu Power soft holds tension better than other Alu strings I meant. TWU has the stats. 4G hybrid sucked in this frame for me, had to cut it out. As did PTP hybrid. I liked those in other frames though. Tried Alu, Alu Rough, Alu Feel and now about to try Alu soft

    WTH that serve hurts my shoulder just looking at it, but probably not as much as it must hurts your nuts! Please don't follow through between your legs, that is not a good idea.

    How to do this FH shot

    Is he playing hopscotch? I've never seen anyone hit like that, probably the worst shots I've ever seen on youtube

    Alu Power Soft is better for tension loss and isnt stiff as old harry (4G)

    18 x 20 racquets and 1HBH advice.

    Try lead at 3 and 9. Most obvious thing between those racquets assuming there isn't a glaring technical deficiency is probably stability and OHBH is sensitive as there is not a lot behind the racquet and only one hand holding it stable.

    Please critique my strokes!

    Hey mate this is what I think in general. Erratic balls often means the full racquet face is not facing where you want the ball to go for a very long time throughout the swing. Yours appears to go from face pointing down to forwards to windshield wiper very quickly which would give you a very...

    Return of the return

    Exercise: Whenever you practice serve make sure you finish the motion by catching the racquet in your off hand and doing a split step every single time. Soon it will become habit and you will ball watch less

    Working on my FH (video 2020)

    They showed a stat on the broadcast they were averaging 2 feet over the net, this was for supposed flat hitting into the wind where the commentators claimed nadal was flattening the ball out more into the wind. So still a fair bit of margin. I think Wilander might be making a comparison to how...
