I'm currently watching shredder Herman Li (only 600,000 hits on YouTube) and blues jazz guy Robben Ford along with those Roma gypsy guys who play in that Django style.

    How important are legs (viz. knee bend) in the serve?

    I've coached players that have had a history of knee problems and it is possible to have a reliable and powerful serve without the type of knee bend that the pros use. You can still get a good enough leg drive and upper body torque with more subtle movements. Keep working on the grip and arm...

    When to look at the ball when serving.

    I actually have my head upright but half-heartedely watch the back of my toss hand with my peripheral vision. It looks like I'm watching the ball from about shoulder height on up but I'm not. I'm more interested my tempo, rhythm and timing of the racquet head in the pre-acceleration phase...

    Favourite Led Zeppelin songs?

    Favorite song is Nobody's Fault But Mine. Stairway To Heaven and Freebird are banned in every music store in the solar system although I still hear 15 year olds pick a guitar off the wall and cack their way through the first few bars. Australian TV show, "The Money Or The Gun" featured...

    New serve videos (much better, lots of work to be done)

    Yep, that's normal. A slightly misshit serve can really put a strain on the joints. Any modern racquet has a lot of technology behind it. There is nothing better than hitting the ball on the screws...but if your don't hit your serve on the sweetspot...it's pain city. Your doing well...

    Help me... please

    Me too. Ted Williams was another who batted left and threw right. The biggest difficulty I had switching from baseball to tennis was the swing tempo change. I threw and hit at about 85-90% my maximum swing speed. Tennis was about 70% max swing tempo. The one benefit of having played...

    what to work on with teaching pros

    My gut instinct would be to address the strategy issues during or before the first lesson in order to give her some peace of mind. I generally watch players hit and play matches for a few weeks before assessing technique because I like to see the patterns that reveal themselves only over...

    Even weirder serve question

    Toss it another 8-10" farther into the court and a little closer to 12 o'clock. The ball will probably hit the bottom of the net the first few times so adjust the trajectory and not the (edit: new and more aggressive) body lean.

    Having a match this Sunday, Haven't been playing for 3 months. Advise needed!

    The tennis is secondary. I'm sure Thai culture has certain do's and don'ts so don't breach social protocols. If you play well...great...if not...no big deal.8)

    163.3 mph serve....

    They used a camera attached to a strobe/flash unit. A calibrated board was set on the court and the distance covered by the serve during each photo was converted into mphs. Scott Carnahan was by far the fastest at 137 mph with Roscoe Tanner at 128 mph and John Newcombe 123 mph.

    Totally non-tennis- eye twitch?

    It sounds like it could be central nervous system fatigue which is usually associated with lack of sleep and overtraining. The rule of thumb is 20 days of...guess what...more sleep and less training before your nervous system is back at it's peak. Your twitch should be gone by now but it...
