    Pam Shriver needs to be fired

    Pam Shriver needs to go. She tricked Melanie into an interview on the court after losing and she made her poor nine year old sister spell "believe" before the match. She just needs to be fired - I'm sick of her.

    Throw elbow out on forehand

    I read a post awhile ago where someone said to finish the forehand by "throwing the elbow" towards the net. I thought it was an interesting tip. Anyone here remember giving this advice or reading it on the forums? One reason I find it intriguing is because you can see how Joker's elbow...

    Identify this player!

    Can anyone identify this player? I have studied video of pro servers for at least seven years now, and I have never seen as much coil in the arm and racket as this guy is getting. Obviously I know who this player is. But I'm curious to see if anyone else can guess correctly...

    Marty Fish

    Does anyone here remember seeing a series of clips, run during the US Open, where they interviewed a player on his best shot? There was one on James Blake's forehand where he famously talked about "sit and lift". And there was another one with Marty Fish on his serve. And another from the...

    How Many More Grand Slams Federer will win

    I'm curious how many more Slams people think Federer will win. I say he takes three next year. Two the year after that. Then at least three more in the rest of his career. So I'm predicting 8 more slams, giving him 20 total - 6 more than Pete's record 14. What do you guys think?

    Superbooga - question

    Hey Superbooga, I remember from awhile back you said that the key to groundstrokes was "pressing into the ball". I like that concept a lot and was curious how you came up with it? Jeff

    The elbow is bent and unfolds into contact for onehanded backhand

    How many people think your arm should be bent and you should "unfold" the forearm into contact (like throwing a frisbee) on the one handed backhand? I voted one "yes" for Mark Papas (in absentia) If you want to look at a pro onehander for reference, here is one...

    Has anyone tried this ebook

    I paid for the ebook at and felt ripped off. It says that it teaches pro technique but the ebook just has pictures of some guy holding a racket with a tennis ball photoshopped on his racket. It seems like he is false advertising by saying this ebook was "As Seen on TV" and...

    Great Tennis Book

    I was studying video the other day, and remembered something I had read from a book I bought a few years ago. I hunted down the book from my bookshelf and reread it, and realized why I thought it was one of the best tennis instruction books it I had ever read. It's called "Tennis Strokes That...

    Federer Forehand

    Check this out: May take a few seconds to load. What do you guys see? How does he get such a far in front contact point? Is it from a pulling motion? Looks to me like he pulls the butt of the racket all the way up to the ball...

    Federer forehand

    There is an interesting exchange on TennisOne between Oscar Wegner and Doug King about the Federer forehand: Oscar argues that Federer comes directly across the ball to the left on contact, and suggests this is the next step in tennis...

    Wrist release on the backhand

    BB, I'm curious about your thoughts on the "wrist release" on the one and two handed backhands. I think it occurs on both shots just like the forehand. But maybe less on the two hander? What do you think? Also the more I study Federer the more I think he is a master of two things on the...

    Wegner forehand article

    On TennisOne, Oscar Wegner just put out an article on the forehand. I know Oscar Wegner is a hotbed of controversy around here, so let me state up front that I like his idea of "finding the ball". I like his idea of "accelerating on contact". I even like his idea of a more delayed backswing...
