Recommended by Youtube. Yummy stuff.
looks great but a translation of what he says would be nice...
Does Internet provide tools for VOICE translation?
I used Youtube's BETA transcribe and translation but it read funny. Check pic out.
is that 2000 MPH ? That is pretty fast serve. Why is he not on the ATP tour ?
Suzuki - Federer Aussie Open 2005
Great serves. The only part I don't like is the big step he takes with the forefoot. That can easily result in foot-faults.
no idea. but maybe good old REALITY provides humans with the abbility to understand, speak and write japanese AND english
do i have to wait for it to finish any process?
all i get is these little squares instead of fonts...
The Youtube BETA transcription and translation service don't work properly. Best bet would be to drag in an interpreter.
huh, well, not in my area
Great video and informative closeup at 9:17.
That's a great video. The frame rate looks like 2000 frames per second. The shutter speed is very fast so that the motion blur is small and you can see everything, the ball on the strings, etc. The dual views, from side and above in the same video are not coordinated and may be of different serves.
I especially like the close up videos of the arm starting at 9:17. It shows 3 separate serve videos. Maybe someone can at least translate to identify each of the 3 serves. Are they the same serve repeated or do they show flat and two spin serves? (The racket on the video to the right travels more to the side.)
The video might be good enough to see how much pronation (forearm) actually occurs before the impact. The internal shoulder rotation (upper arm) is very easy to see by looking at the elbow area and upper arm.
( My earlier thread on when does pronation occur relative to internal shoulder rotation.
I still don't know.)
i wrote to the uploader begging him to translate it..
First one is flat, then a slice, and then a top spin / kick serve. I think the guy's explanation is pretty straight foreword. Nothing you guys haven't heard on this board.
I don't understand Japanese either.
oh, you're also the youtube uploader?
oh my, the vocal translation is so crazy you can write it as a short story and win the 'loony' prize
I just watched the video and it does look great. As for the translation of his comments, he's really not saying anything different than what you can find in other instruction sites like The Fuzzy Yellow Ball. The usual relaxed arm, toss positions for different serves, pronation with frame edge coming first, etc.
I am Japanese and speak fluently.
it would be nice to hear it from "the horse's mouth" though..
lol he did play on tour.
Did you find any other useful instructional vid from Japan? Please share.
