    Some videos of points, serve etc... because why not

    Why do you play with a dozen balls strewn all around the court? Here in the U.S., we generally open a new can of balls and play with 3 at a time...

    Which Pro Had the Most Low-to-High One-Hander? Any Tips On Hitting the Looper?

    Muster had a pretty vertical/spinny 1HBH for the technology of his day (pre-poly), might be worth looking into...

    One Hand Backhand - Waht Force to Start Forward Swing?

    Another shirtless 1HBH, Robredo at 5:50 below. Notice his right pectoral muscle throughout the shot!

    If WTA players don't hit overheads, should rec players follow suit?

    Dropshot, then lob any rec player who has a crappy overhead. Rinse and repeat as often as necessary...

    Switched to Full Western on forehand

    It's also amazing how well he can dig out low balls, considering his W grip and the fact that he's like 6'6" !!!

    Borg vs. McEnroe on NBC Sports

    I think Borg and McEnroe were pretty good buddies. McEnroe supposedly pleaded with Borg not to retire!?!

    How to hit a OHBH like Arthur Ashe

    Edberg another good example of continental BH topspin. One of the best!

    How to hit a OHBH like Arthur Ashe

    Lendl sliced quite often with his BH.

    How to hit a OHBH like Arthur Ashe

    Yes, even Sampras would have been slayed by the 3.5's of your club...

    tension for full bed gut ?

    Spin has more to do with technique, strings are secondary. For example, Sampras' second serve was recorded at 5,300 RPM with nat gut... https://tennisone.tennisplayer.net/content/Lessons/yandell/samprasserve/sampras.htm

    Can TE improve even though u keep playing?

    Good advice. My TE went away after resting until pain-free, and then switching to full-bed natural gut. I will definitely never play poly strings again!

    2012 Ferrer was a beast

    5th highest ELO rating of last 20 years, a long relatively injury-free career, and no slams. What does that tell you about the ELO rating?

    Becker vs Muster, what happened?

    What antics by Muster!!!

    Leave the trick shots to Federer. This is your real challenge

    I have been thinking about buying this. @Curious @J011yroger - your thoughts on the course?

    Challenge to the coaches on here

    The BH slice or the BH drop shot?

    Challenge to the coaches on here

    That would be a very full follow-through for a drop shot. Usually follow-through for drop shot is not so full, it's more abbreviated...

    Let the virus die before my last stroke - Shelter in Place Tennis

    Looks like JMG went to 1-handed when stretched on his FH side (0:28 and 2:30). I think a bigger server than Hewitt would likely take advantage of that and rarely get broken...

    Let the virus die before my last stroke - Shelter in Place Tennis

    Do you switch hands on return-of-serve? That seems like it would be a major limitation of your technique, at anything at ~4.0 level and above where people have decent serves. Imagine if Seles had to switch hands when returning Graf's serve, or Santoro had to swtich hands when receiving Safin's...

    Let the virus die before my last stroke - Shelter in Place Tennis

    Monica Seles was awesome, arguably best 2-handed player on both sides in history of tennis. But she didn't switch hands as you do, she kept the same hand placement for both FH and BH. Nither did Santoro, or Hsieh. Do any players on your list switch their bottom hand like you're doing in the...

    One Hand Backhand - Waht Force to Start Forward Swing?

    No, but their coaches probably had a pretty good grasp on the biomechanics of the shots they were being taught :-)

    Chas has said in other posts that he is in his mid-70's, so probably enjoys the analysis at this stage of life...

    Stefan Edberg's forehand - what can we learn?

    His behind-the-back-hand would still hold up in today's modern game :)

    Prestige Mid to become the racquet of the 2020s.

    So, the new Prestige Mid is apparently good for WTA forehand? :)

    Federer v Roddick Oz Open 2007. Could this performance be the best of Federer?

    5 consecutive breaks of Roddick's serve!?! Is that the longest streak of breaks in Roddick's career?

    One Hand Backhand - Waht Force to Start Forward Swing?

    I haven't studied Kohl's 1HBH much, but that angle at 2:06 makes it look like he's in the non-chest press category...
