    Good videos

    It was the kids Tennis day, just $10 for adults/$5 kids. So was open to anyone. Took the kids but was great to catch some practice sessions.

    Clash 98: underrated racquet of 2019.

    Yeah the tour didn’t do that much for me compared to the 100. The 98 was very nice too.

    The new blade V7 May just be the best blade so far

    So Wilson have produced a PT630 in 18x20 pattern, but also a PT in 16x19 a la Murray. Petty cool :)

    I Want A 120 MPH Serve

    Yeah to me that looks quicker than 100-110. To compare, here is a 105mph serve according to Playsight data. That other one looks quicker, but as others mention placement and spin are more effective. With my technique at the moment, I’m not serving any quicker than this, but it doesn’t bother me.

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    Yeah looks to me like an extreme eastern. I thought Fed is more extreme eastern now. Not sure, but I recall he used to have it facing the back more in his earlier years as well.

    2hbh ... I now think arm snap, not hands/wrist snap ... DOH!!!

    That drill sounds like a good way to get the feel and the sequencing of positions. I am currently using an eastern for the left hand. I have tried SW but never gave it a proper go. I recall not feeling I could extend through the ball as much. I might try it again next time I’m out as I could...

    2hbh ... I now think arm snap, not hands/wrist snap ... DOH!!!

    Yeah Its not just a left hand forehand where fh principles just apply. Its a different stroke for me. Here is how I try and drop it in the slot before the forward swing:

    2hbh ... I now think arm snap, not hands/wrist snap ... DOH!!!

    I find I set the lag by actively dropping the racquet with the arms at the end of the take back. It’s a conscious thing and not as a result of rotation during the forward swing into the ball.

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    Regarding your comment about string facing the back fence, grip plays a part the more extreme you go but for you it looks to be also due to some hand orientation in your take back. Yours looks laid back and see Andy here

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    Extreme eastern looks more conservative than your grip imo. Do you have your pinky off the handle?

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    Why would I have a problem? Seems odd asking a relative beginners question about your own grip.

    Forehand grip, which is it?

    With the amount you post on here you can’t work out what your own grip is?

    Is it possible to learn a semi-western forehand at an advanced age

    Eastern is a great grip and don’t think it limits my ability to hit a decent forehand. Found it too difficult to transition to something as extreme as sw, and figured why bother.

    Is it possible to learn a semi-western forehand at an advanced age

    Stick with your eastern grip and adopt a modern approach to the stroke. Guys like del Potro and Federer have more conservative grips. Del Potro might be ok to look at as it seems simple enough.

    How to visualise the lag and whipping motion on the forehand and 2 handed backhand.

    When I shadow swing I feel this. More so the feeling of the hips completing rotation before the arm sets in motion. The feel there is the change in direction of the racquet head. So hips then racquet head. I don’t quite do this in reality with an incoming ball but when I do it probably feels...

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    I have the pro 100, not the 100p. If the 93p has even more drive than the pro 100, then will certainly have to give it a try as the last outing with it I felt I could drive through the ball pretty well. Off topic, but the court I was on had PlaySight which was cool.

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    I might try pick up some demo frames from tennis only and include this one.. its been on my list to try. Did you try the 100P or Pro 100 out of interest?

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    I haven’t had a chance to try the 93p yet. I have taken the phantom pro 100 16x18 out a few times now and is quite a nice frame. Have you compared both? Just wondering how much more firmer feeling the 93 is. Had to add some weight to increase stability but have been liking it so far.

    Prince Phantom Pro and Phantom Pro100P

    I don’t know about the 18x20 version but the 16x18 Pro 100 is a very nice frame. Great feel. I put a bit of lead, 3 inch strips at 3/9. Stable, plush and enough control for me.

    I experienced a 125-130mph serve

    I’ve hit with a former pro who has been clocked at around 118 on PlaySight. Certainly a big serve to return but second serves as you mentioned sets his apart. Lots of spin and height and difficult to deal with. And hits his spots consistently. As an aside I watched Raonic play a match some...

    Pat the Dog, or not....

    There’s not that much tech talk around here anymore anyway. It’s just threads on who would beat who and proving your tennis worth.

    Pat the Dog, or not....

    I think it is a natural move if you keep certain things passive during the unit turn. Once the initial move of pointing the racquet tip to the sky is complete, you turn the shoulders/torso without initiating the arms any further. So the arms/upper body turn as a single unit. From there once the...
