    Slow Motion Video

    Here is a short clip of some ball machine hitting in slow motion. I posted some practice video a week ago and I received some good tips. Some pointed out that I am jerking my head up early to watch where the ball goes and the video clearly shows that's true. Also the lack of bending at the knees...

    Video Of Some rally Points

    Here is a clip of a game of 21 with drop feeds that I played against a very good hitting partner. You can tell that he is taking it easy and working on his back court game, plus he lets me start most of the points. This is a good practice game because you play a lot of points in a short time...

    Playing indoors vs Outdoors

    Practice Video

    A short video of a little practice with my wife yesterday. I have been taking lessons and my coach says that my forehand from the backcourt is good enough believe it or not. But he wants me to hit across the ball more when I get in the court to attack. He said if the ball is short and at net...

    Another Hitting Winner off Back Foot Oscar Wegner Style

    Here is another example of hitting a good shot off back foot. I thought that my backhand slice was out at first so I was caught flat footed. Then I ran up to fast and had to adjust back some to be able to hit the shot. But this forehand shows that a good shot can be hit off back foot while...

    Rally Practice Video

    Here is some practice from today before we played a set. I used a better camera so it should look much better than that last fuzzy video. I am starting to get the hang of the two hander but still have a long way to go. I am not that confident in point play so I still slice a lot but I am...

    Mixing Head Gravity?

    Has anyone tried mixing the head gravity triangle shaped main with a different x's than the one that comes in the hybrid set? I really like this string but do not care for the thin springy x's, I need something a little stiffer and less powerful. I really wish that I could just purchase the...

    Extreme Grip on 2 handed backhand

    Has anyone else had good luck with using a western style grip on the 2 hander? It's probably just my strange way of hitting a tennis ball. But I am really trying to get a solid 2 handed backhand. For some reason I seem to hit the best when I have the racket really closed on the take back...
