Since I've last complained about my shanking of forehands (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=269160), i think i've vastly improved my consistency by sticking with the one grip that my racket seemed to always naturally appear to fall into... western grip (or a very very extreme semi-western). I made it a large point for me to focus on sticking with one grip (instead of experimenting) and turning my shoulders (something i really sucked at). one problem i have now is that i'm having trouble consistently trying to hit deep on rally balls, so it's like i'm more consistently hitting the ball short, inside the service line, for my opponent to run up and put balls away. Do you folks have any pointers for achieving depth more easily and consistently? one thing i notice about myself is that i have a pretty compact backswing. when i tried to make it more loopy (in hopes of achieving more power), i'd just lose sight of my racket face position and frame the ball. When i try to hit through the ball more, it just ends up being short. when i try to hit more low to high, it helps sometimes, but it lacks speed and kind of floats in the air.
