    Drop vs. Rotation.

    Playing against a slow hitter HELP !!!

    But sometimes the ball falls short yet bounce med or high, then when your try to hit a slice or semi-volley etc. The ball sometimes goes to the net.

    Playing against a slow hitter HELP !!!

    I agree. But, I do the over-hit even whan I am in position XD actually, I don't know what's happening. I think I get too cautious which interrupts my play resulting with error.

    Leg drive myth?

    I think what I understand from drop is that it actually is the rotation of the upper arm. Is it right?

    Leg drive myth?

    Then maybe what I mean is upper arm/shoulder return.

    Leg drive myth?

    Exactly. Words/terms/explanations etc are hard to understand and visualize.

    Leg drive myth?

    Zero leg drive, deep drop.

    Playing against a slow hitter HELP !!!

    I see. So not a big swing but somehow near your torso like racket opening and swinging it fast. I will try. However, I have ulnar wrist injury which makes such balls hard to hit for me. Thanks.

    Playing against a slow hitter HELP !!!

    I think I slow down my stroke when I see such balls so the swing feels unnatural, usually goes out or to the net. But, also I read somewhere that it was suggested not to overhit the ball, but rather place the ball. So, are you sure about flicking it?

    Leg drive myth?

    Doesn't ISR (maybe it is ESR) happen after the trophy position? That's where the confusion starts for me, does the drop really happen, or does ISR make it look like the racket drops? (except the intertia momentum)

    Leg drive myth?

    I think what I can't do is letting gravity do its job.

    Playing against a slow hitter HELP !!!

    Slow, sitter balls almost bounce perpendicularly, so it is different than recieving a regular ball during the game. My problem is not being able to reach the ball, but maybe over reaching it if it makes any sense.

    Playing against a slow hitter HELP !!!

    Also, I think it is not, or only, about positioning, but maybe an over-hitting or slowing down the swing issue. I just feel like spending too much time on focusing on my movements rather than the game when playing against a pusher, a slow player, or similar players.

    So you return sitter balls with slice etc.?

    Leg drive myth?

    Thanks. I will try to understand and visualize what you described here. Right now it sounds abit confusing.

    Leg drive myth?

    I think I still don't understand how and why the racket would/should drop back if I can hit a fast serve without dropping it. I mean, it doesn't feel natural to me, or I am missing something.

    Leg drive myth?

    I understand the inertia momentum, but if I do not force the racket to drop a bit, then how it can go down because of inertia, while its starting (standing) point is the throphy position?

    Leg drive myth?

    Is the back drop during the serve really about leg drive? I am not so sure, because when I do basic serve drills to get used to the timing (no jump, not too much rotation etc. Just working on the swing), I feel like I do it more relaxed (not feeling forced or being in an unnatural position which...

    Should I avoid low-pressured balls?

    And told me to check tt europe, but there prices are higher... Still, cheaper than I would get from here (I guess). Greece wouldn't be problem, it is on an individual level trade, but never thought about it before. Which online shop? Slazenger I think is alittle cheaper. Which one though? They...

    Should I avoid low-pressured balls?

    Lol, well I am in İstanbul, but I think the city doesn't matter. Without any track, with 4-6 weeks shipment time, tt ships here for $10, but it is almost 60bucks for me... Also, I will need to pay for customs tax. Also they do not ship all products from US. I tried buying string and grip, they...

    Should I avoid low-pressured balls?

    Yes, for practice of serve and self-feed, but while doing drills they are really no use (I mean those are really dead like or hardened). I'm from Turkey.

    Should I avoid low-pressured balls?

    In your place, do they give out the balls you play at the match?

    Should I avoid low-pressured balls?

    Right now, while depending on the shop, 2 cans of 3x Dunlop fort costs 60 bucks, a can of 3x Wilson Us open XD costs 65 bucks.

    Should I avoid low-pressured balls?

    I have plenty of dead balls, i usually practice with them if it is for serves or self feeding, but due to my injury, I wanted to ask. Yes i would buy balls too but my country imports ball they are 10 times more expensive here than in USA

    How to think of the serve?

    It may be the cause. My serve is still inconsistent, actually thinking about getting lessons. Later I can record some vids.

    Yes, and I have never seen any indoor clay courts. O_o

    The most comfortable racket you've played with?

    Thanks. So in the end, due to wrist injury, I cannot do much or no spin (or sometimes have hard time returning low balls if I don't use slice) with my current racket. Considering this, and considering I'm a heavy player and who also usually plays with spin players where I recieve fast balls-but...
