My forehand then vs now

Found some old video of my forehand when I started playing again after a 30 year break from the game.
Most of my time been working on the serve but in the last year I been trying to undo the
major flaws I had. I think it shows if you really want to change you can but you have
to put in the work and find the right coach and information to do so.

warning.. video has music and video of a disaster of a forehand that may make you vomit.
Enjoy!

Heck, you definitely look more balanced and achieve more consistent spacing. Are you satisfied with what your FH looks like and what quality of ball it produces?

It has so much more drive and power with less effort. I was able to put back a ok ball the old way but I am more efficient now and still looking to improve more.

Are you looking here for acknowledgement? Or seeking advice? Just not sure based on your initial post.

Just showing how one can improve on a really bad forehand. Like a before and after. Did I post in the wrong section?

So acknowledgement) section is formally correct, but expect mostly critics :rolleyes: I think FHs at 1:52 and 1:54 were really better of what you have. 1:59 also decent. 2:06 and then after some jerky ones (seemed like you tried to add some more spin or power?) 2:24 is again flowing nicely.

can you record a video using the same angle from behind the baseline as your 2015 video?

Will make it easier to compare.
