    Did Steffi Graf have the best slice ever?

    Does she? She relies on it almost 100% on her backhand side and still achieved so much.

    Semi western backhand grip on the ATP tour?

    Is Gasquet still using this grip? How come I don't see many others if any at all now? Surely a more solid topspin shot can be hit from this grip?

    'Problem' with Stan

    Stan is a bit odd in that you have big 3 then Murray which is actually pretty close to the big 3 but not really there. Then you have Stan a fair way away from Murray. Then after Stan you've got a large group of guys who are good contenders but never really made it to the big time. So Stan...

    Cocking the wrist at the unit turn position for the forehand?

    Some players do it. Not many though. Prominent ones are Nadal and Wawrinka. Why do they do it? What do they get from it? By cocking I mean slanting the racquet inwards towards them at the unit turn position. Stan does this big time on the backhand side as well. At 0:03 here

    The "trick" to low biting slices

    My volleys are a strength. You think I should view the slice as a "big volley". So punch at the ball? So a lopez kind of slice.

    Can you be more specific? Especially with regards to racquet orientation.

    The "trick" to low biting slices

    I notice some of the older experienced players can consistently hit low biting backhand slices. What is the trick to doing it consistently??

    What is exactly going on between trophy position and contact of the ball in the Roddick serve?

    In a normal serve like Sampras' it's racquet drop then hit the ball. But for Roddick he's (famous) trophy position is much lower and earlier. His motion just after that position is so much quicker as well than the usual racquet drop of a normal serve.

    I was thinking of size of loop.

    Who has a more compact forehand: Djokovic or Wawrinka?

    Who has a more compact forehand: Djokovic or Wawrinka?

    Many people say Wawrinka's forehand is long or not compact. But it seems more compact than Djokovic's forehand. But people never associate Djokovic's forehand as non compact. If anything many people say its very compact. What do you think?

    Would you pay Federer $1000/h to coach you?

    I'd rather have a hit with Kyriogs rather than Federer tbh. Just to see what the fuss is all about with that guy.

    Forehand finish?

    Why is it that Djokovic almost always finish higher than Wawrinka???

    Forehand finish?

    I actually can produce more spin finishing down at times. So the racquet quickly brushed upward then downwards. Sometimes finishing above the shoulder can result in a flatter ball.

    Forehand finish?

    Many say it dosen't matter where you finish but still different players finish at different positions. What determines where you should finish your forehand? eg Djokovic finishes up high. Federer a bit lower. Wawrinka even lower. I know it will depend on the stroke but in general out of 100...

    Why doesn't Wawrinka learn to return properly?

    I have high expectations for Stan. His returns have been criticized. It's his biggest weakness so I am wondering why he doesn't improve on it. This is a serious thread.

    Why doesn't Wawrinka learn to return properly?

    Yes like Novak or Roger for example.

    Why doesn't Wawrinka learn to return properly?

    But he stands far back to return the second serve. It would be easier to return the second serve close to the baseline.

    Why doesn't Wawrinka learn to return properly?

    Instead of chipping back the return for the first serve why doesn't Wawrinka learn to return properly like how everyone else on the ATP tour does? Also he stands a long way back to return the second serve. Wouldn't it be easier if he stands closer and return it on the rise?

    Follow through in the flat serve?

    Many big servers have almost zero follow through in their first serves. Thiem though has full follow through on the flat serve. Why is this? I can understand why the second serve do no require much follow through. But with the first serve why almost zero follow through? By follow through I mean...
