    Video of forehand, coaches please critique

    Feedback appreciated, cheers! Edit: What I'm most unhappy with is lack of depth control, and shank too much, more often on crosscourt than down the line fhs. Point play video Full match, uncut

    A Tip on the Tossing Arm in the Serve

    If you're struggling with body alignment on the serve, or have a contact point too much off to the side, here is a tip: when tossing the ball, try to look at the ball through the outside of your tossing arm (left side for righties). This should help get a more comfortable position in the...

    A question on coaching IRL (not TTW)

    A question for the experienced coaches here about making technical adjustments in players: Does telling a student to exaggerate a certain movement or key reference point help fix technical problems or maybe speeds up the learning process? Obviously there is a bare minimum of reps needed to...

    Maintaining your level

    Went out for a hit the other day, first in a couple of weeks. couldn't keep the ball in play for more than 5-6 shots, and I could tell that I wouldn't be able to keep up with usually closely matched opponents. just asking around: how often do you personally need to play to maintain your current...

    Ball egg-shaped in flight?

    Is this an illusion? I've never paid attention or seen it, but I've heard several players describing the ball taking the shape of an egg when returning my kick serve. A university coach also remarked on this after a player hit a wickedly spun forehand. Any thoughts/experiences?

    Forehand help (video)

    Looked at my forehand on video, it feels and seems like a floppy mess with a wrist flick at the end of it. How can I work on cleaning up my motion? (green shirt)

    For everyone struggling with ESPN French Open coverage (US)

    Who else hates ESPN for showing boring matches and turning off online streaming of all courts after 10 AM EST? Apparently, Tennis Channel makes its streams free and readily available (at least up to 3rd round), and they're not half bad:

    Help choosing racquet(s)?

    After my Microgel Radical Pro bent out at the top after an unfortunate stringing, in a euphoric rush of sudden freedom, I recklessly got a 6.1 BLX 90, hoping to get more stability on my 1hbh & volleys. I don't regret my choice too much, but I'm afraid I was a bit too ambitious with weight and...

    How to tell a racquet is well-strung?

    Other than the obvious "feels good after broken in," no skipped weaves, and secure but hidden knots, what are other (possibly more nuanced/subtle) things to look for in a string job? I've heard of looking at the face of the string bed from an acute angle and looking for a certain detail I can't...
