    Semi Western Grip serve VERY WRONG?

    Actually, not all threads! I have quite a few threads since seven years ago to encourage forehand grip serves using semi or eastern grip. It works well with open stance, not with pin-point, platform stance and pronation; thus the name "forehand serve", or 3O serves _ open grip, open stance and...

    Ok guys, I’m done here

    Think about this: golfers and baseballers still don't know what is two-handed forehand ways of hitting balls; only we know. We are ahead of them by at lease two generations!! If we quite, they are hopeless, seriously!! Modern tennis is still halfway done here. The rotational power of human body...

    "someone can how me that spinning 360 degrees (shout out to @oserver), and win matches at whatever level that i happen to be losing at, then who am i to say they have "bad" technique..." The spinning 360 degrees shots actually is a natural progression of modern forehand, IMHO. Anyone likes to...

    Ok guys, I’m done here

    After the forum banned me for no reason, I thought that was it - no more waste of time here anymore. But curiosity finally slipped in when I wanted to know how long the ban could be, only to find out the ban was lifted. So the 360 shots continued... not only that, it spreaded to golf too, the...

    At elite lever, nothing come naturally without hard work. This video actually shows that Nadal practice a lot to get his helicopter signature forehand proficient.

    That's very true - The world is not ready. Just think about how long it took to have the modern forehand developed!? The court surfaces, racket size and racket/string materials changes all contributed to this tennis form modernization. But for two handed forehand forms and techniques, the major...

    True, both pace and spin in their practice sessions are below the shots in competitions on average, true for Rafa and for most players. From my experiences, one has to practice a lot to get certain shot proficient. I guess Rafa must practiced helicopter shots behind the scene to be the best of...

    Side view of golf range 360 degree shot with slow motion. In modern tennis, open stance, open grip, segmented turn (modern style, not traditional unit turn style), rotational body movement (not more linear movement) separate advanced players and beginners/intermediate players. Apply all these...

    Interesting, why I'm in the too much category but not Federer, or Nadal when he does the helicopter 360 degree forehand swing? Is it just because they are famous?

    It's fun to rotate 360 degree, and I also think in the future, every serious tennis player need to practice this move to get used to open stance, open grip and unconstrained followthrough to release the under-developed, hidden power of angular momentum, whether one uses it in a match situation...

    Too much of a good thing tends to be bad, or too little of good thing tends to be not too good - just like the conventional serves lack the rotational movement of modern forehand... and the opennesses. BTW, are you guys getting a little bored on this TW forum to return to this thread:laughing:?

    Haha, a baby step for Federer to be creative. The video only shows his 360 degree arm rotation. I guess the unconstrained followthrough can add a little bit of pace and spin. To be more effective, he needs the whole body rotation to look like a true creative adult:p

    Semi Western Grip serve VERY WRONG?

    Haha - "Only one person is that brave...";) We argued to much so this video may help - Use Shot Tracer to record my flat open serve speed. Open Stance and Open Grip (between #4 and #3 grip: eastern plus/semi-western minus grip) combination serve forms.

    Good videos

    If I hit three balls in a row across the net, in tennis, that shouldn't be extraordinary at all. But the net here is actually the fence of golf course.... Maybe the real catch here is not the over the fence aspect; it is the my unusual tennis forms to drive the golf balls! They are: 1.open...

    Un-edit tennis style golf (three) shots - over the net every time, unimpressive (360 degree turning too), right!? It just happened that the net is actually too tall and too far away (232 yards away)!

    Find a guy you could never beat in the past, and deploy my 360 shots so he'll be laughing at you to the ground, ignoring the speeding ball ..... Easy points, why not!?

    Spin direction? Counter clockwise and right handed, then you are with me and perhaps had a little fun. Clockwise would be a wrong way...:D

    Ball-side hand in front, cross-body hand at end position, this is the form for both golf and two-handed backhand tennis. No dispute you can offer here!?

    Haha, give me some reason I should fade! Do you have real interesting threads that worth people's time to visit? Can you make a hype to hit a golf ball from 150 yards to 250 yard in a matter of three month?

    Here is a video of December 15th showing 6 consecutive drives over the back fence. Just a few weeks ago I was pessimistic, thinking that I may never be able to hit the a ball to the fence (232 yards away). What a difference a few weeks could make! And back to tennis: if golf can be hit this...

    Last day of 2020! Two hours of morning mixed tennis and afternoon golfing. What a day! Best of my 360 degree turn shot, a little showing off of my ethnicity! The ball went over the fence too! I'm happy to let the flying ball to end 2020! This long drive was hit with a new grip I experimented...
