    Lol, yeah don't know how you would get much more opposite or simplistic then Pat the Dog or the U shape hand swing for a one hander. Maybe we just should say "here is a tennis racquet, now go swing it." Haha

    Advice on my SH Backhand

    Off arm should pause rotation at contact as racquet goes through the ball before finishing.

    Advice on my SH Backhand

    Tough to analyze this video in normal speed while trying to find things. Maybe I am doing something wrong but would rather provide advice with some step framing or slomo. Weight transfer to your front foot appears awkward or just not transferring consistently on each ball. You need to get more...

    No "Pet The Dog" on 2HBH?

    Ahhh, sorry. I meant TOP-HAND (instead of dominate) and bottom-hand...for you your dominate hand (left hand) is the bottom hand.

    Your legs and shoulder rotation. Relax the arms/hands. Dominate hand should slightly push through the ball. Bottom-hand is relaxed and its placement is mainly for racquet face stability. It should not fight the other hand. Meet the ball slightly in front of you. Don't crossover with your front...

    I do use PTD for the twohanded backhand when developing it. However, my goal isn't to make it perfectly parallel when allowing the player to swing freely. I use PTD on both sides to teach trust, eliminate last minute wrist movement, and to teach brushing up the backside of the ball at contact...

    Thanks everyone. Glad to see many of you are still posting. I am hoping also that Mahboob will be able to shed his insight with his busy schedule. Thanks for the congrats on the marriage and yes bought two racquets for her for valentines. I am planning to be around again.

    I got married to a fantastic woman. She is loving tennis and is learning fast. She just ordered some racquets here so I thought I would stop in to say hi.

    The instruction is to help teach muscle memory and help the student trust the face of the racquet when it's moving forward before it will make contact with the ball properly so the mind can focus in other things and they won't wrist/turn the racquet face for last minute adjustments before they...

    Tracking the ball

    thanks SA, I see you're still plugging away. That is good.

    Tracking the ball

    Hey ROG, perhaps you are simply wanting to go too fast and do too much with the ball. Pressure from a better player can do that to anyone one of us. It is sort of like getting "spooked" or "psyched out" in the moment. When it comes to "seeing" the ball we are to use our focal and peripheral...

    Serve Breaks Down

    Serving starts in the legs. Overall strength and flexibilty in the whole body is very important for the serve. But you need good strong legs to keep the thrust and pace on the ball throughout the match. Normally when my serve wears down, it's in my legs. Strong stomach muscles and hip flexors...

    You're free to take your potshots....

    Lol, now that is funny!

    The legs are the key to kenetic chain on serve: Agree or disagree?

    I wouldn't be far behind you on that one. Preached the importance of that a lot here.

    Weight training makes you stiff?

    You should try P90X or something similar. That is what I do and it is well balanced that includes cardio, flexibility, core, and strength training. You do not have ot be perfect at it to get results. For example, I can't do plyos because of my knees. So I mix in the elyptical or the stationary...

    The legs are the key to kenetic chain on serve: Agree or disagree?

    Absolutely not. Somethings do and something don't. Don't know of anyone that exhibits excellent body control, relaxation, etc. without practice and something to do better.

    The legs are the key to kenetic chain on serve: Agree or disagree?

    The legs certainly play a big role in bringing energy up and through the body. Because the serve is so intricately connected one could also argue shoulders, arm relaxation, etc. as most important also.

    An argument for single-handed backhand

    Considering only the racket and you have an argument but hitting a onehander has more to do with your physical and mental aspects than the racquet. Some people aren't wired to hit a onehander and vice versa.

    Is this an acceptable volley grip

    Hi Leonard, When it comes to volley grips, each player will base how they position their hand from the Continental grip reference point. I make slight adjustments from a pure continental mainly to strengthen my wrist area to make my volleys. So I am always "off-center" on both the forehand and...
