    Girl can hit ATP forehand

    It’s even more atp than atp forehands. Lol. I see potential arm problems. Needs a little tweak, but very nice hitting nonetheless. Her hitting partner is solid too Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Serve feedback needed

    I’m at work right now, but got a quick analysis based on the first two serves I saw. -you lose the balance and power from your legs/body when you go to hit the ball. For example, you tend to shift ur momentum upward to hit true ball but then your racquet hasn’t followed yet. Therefore you can...

    Volleying after crouching down during partner's serve

    Seems like he needs to stand a little more wide. I usually don’t need to crouch when I’m close to the center of the service box. You definitely don’t need to crouch if you are near the alley. I think crouching is only done near the “I” formation. It will be tough to feel out but I’d say to...

    I wouldn’t say it’s a federer fh haha. I’ve been asked before to play in the usta 4.5 doubles league but haven’t fully committed to them as yet. Don’t really play much tournaments since my junior (13-16 y.o) days in Belize. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No worries. I’ve hit with 5.0s and college players, just didn’t record them. Will do so in the future though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yup, so many things to consider. Many times you see guys with mediocre technique and skillset beat guys that are destroying the ball during practice.

    Playing with my Dad

    I have never gotten a detailed analysis like that before. So for my forehand, I am leaning towards my right too often, so you want me to plant my foot a little more out (from my shoulder)? Backhand - My bh has always been more stiff/jammed when I hit it, to the point that I wanted to switch to...

    Playing with my Dad

    Thank you, I think from this point on improvement would be strongly based on my fitness and the work I put in offcourt. Which I don’t do at all haha

    Playing with my Dad

    Thank you! I am at my peak level at the moment. I don’t really have a good gauge on it since I do not compete much. But I’d say between 4.5-5.0 ntrp (UTR is too complicated for now) My dad hit thru the ball a little more and use more legs when he was younger — his shots would be more or less...

    Playing with my Dad

    Hit the courts when my dad was in town. He rarely plays now since I moved to New York (I’m from Belize) but it’s always great getting a session in with him. He knows my game the best — every piece of advice he gives is always game changing. It’s a slow process sometimes when you try to...

    Yonex Ezone 98 (305g) Customization

    And what would be the best weight/location to place the lead at to balance off the leather grip without changing much of the balance at stock? I do like a little bit of weight on the racquet but also want it to be less head heavy as I have it now. Maybe just put it on 12?

    Yonex Ezone 98 (305g) Customization

    I believe they string it at high 40’s full poly. Like hyper g or cyclone. I recommend 17 gauge though if you go full poly

    Yonex Ezone 98 (305g) Customization

    I have friends who got the 98 plus and say they love it. What’s ur hybrid setup? I had some leftover RPM and some synth gut that i put together, but hated instantly. I haven’t given it a try the plus frame though. Have you play tested the regular one?

    Yonex Ezone 98 (305g) Customization

    Good point. My game has evolved and I feel I put more wrist action into my shot now (in a good way) so more racquet head speed sounds pretty good lol. I hit thru the ball a lot so removing the lead might be a plus for me.

    Yonex Ezone 98 (305g) Customization

    Got it, I’ll give it a try next time. What Are your thoughts on putting lead at 6? I read that it doesn’t affect the balance, but how does it really feel exactly. I do like the extra bit of weight on the racquet. Thanks for the input!

    im planning on removing lead tape for my next hitting session. Any thoughts in how the leather grip would affect it if I left it on?

    Yonex Ezone 98 (305g) Customization

    I got the racquet a year ago but after hitting with it, wanted more plow through. So I decided to add about 2 grams of lead tape on 3, 9 and 12 of the head and also a Wilson leather grip, which made it more solid for me. I’m curious to see what other EZONE user’s like their set up to be. I’m...

    Update on my Game!

    you just described my 2hbh situation. haha. I would hit a couple of solid ones but then comes the weak one as you mentioned. I went back to my 2hbh today and it felt better after hittting the 1H the past couple of times

    Update on my Game!

    Hey! I apologize for the late reply. I’m in NY unfortunately but I will definitely keep you in mind if I come to SF. If only i knew earlier, I went there a couple of months ago. I don’t quite get your point on gripping it tighter. Does gripping the racquet too loose really cause me to chicken...

    Update on my Game!

    I need to take note of those elements haha. The thing I struggle with the most though, is the close stance. During point play specifically, I always forget how important it is to step in and close the hips and then opening it afterwards during the follow through. It’s really annoying for me. I...

    Two handed BH to One handed BH

    I’m asking for advice to improve a stroke that I know nothing of (other than the “look” of it). This is different from advice on whether to switch to a 1H from 2H. That’s a friend of mine, btw. Who has never seen me hit a 1HBH. I asked him to record it at the end of our hit because I’ve never...
