The end of tennis !!!

#1
We all see that tennis is dying. Better rackets, strings and balls caused that on fast surfaces only random breaks decide who wins. Young players looking for greater speed of the racket cant control the balls. All matches are boring. Old players beat young players because they are the last who dont use modern technique which caused the crisis. We are waiting for a grand slam final between 45 years old Federer and 40 years old Nadal. It is inevitable. It may look like that.

In the top 7 in ATP ranking 6 players 30 years old and more.

I think that only one serve should be allowed. It would eliminate Cilic, Anderson, Isner from the top 10. It is just a shame that players who cant play forehand and backhand on an average level can even win important tournaments.

Wimbledon shouldnt be counted as a grand slam. We all know that there is no real tennis on Wimbledon. The only chance for this tournament is the change of surface to clay.

Gregory this is awesome, I am practicing two hended forehand thenks to you. May I ask question? For hitting drop shot winner against racquet throwing younger opponent I should keep both hands on racquet for shot disguise?

Tennis : “Um, ok, thanks for your input. We’ll look into it K-bye!”

I use one hand to play drop shot but I am going to learn two handed slice. When I test it I`ll be able to answer your question. You can see 5 drop shots in the second part of the next video. 2:24, 2:43, 2:55, 3:09, 3:22.


Later today I`ll publish video with proper grip for two handed forehand. Without proper grip left hand blocks the movement of right hand. My new two handed forehand is played in the same way as one handed forehand but there is much more stability. You can switch to my new version almost instantly because right hand works the same as in one handed forehand. In videos above I use older version of two handed forehand. After half hour I go on the court and I`ll record new version.

What are you talking about ?
"Most people have disabled one hand !!!":
https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/most-people-have-disabled-one-hand.618092/

"Great crisis in tennis !!!":
https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/great-crisis-in-tennis.629047/page-8#post-12814250


And now it's: "The end of tennis !!!"

I wouldn't be surprised if there were more before the disable one hand thread, but I never saw them or contributed to them.

All of your threads have the signature space followed by three exclamation marks at the end of the title. @JSZ if you are actually real and actually interested (which I'm doubtful of), just look at one of the above two threads. This is going to turn into the exact same thing if people entertain him like I did for part of the first and basically all of the second. I might chime in to laugh or a small comment here or there, but I'm not going to lead it this time.

People disabled one hand, it caused great crisis and now tennis is dying.

I tested today new grip of my two handed forehand. It worked excellently. Now I transfer recording from camera to computer to see it. I am really excited. There is a great chance that after 3.5 years I have found ideal two handed forehand like Peng Shuai. I was a great player but now I am much better. Maybe the best in the world. I played a great match today with this big guy.

Zverev-Khachanov 2:6 1:6
Zverev 21 years old and the end of progress. It is not an excident. It is real worth of so called modern technique. It is dead.
Because there's no chance that 22 year old Khachanov is just improving quicker. You're right, a 22 year old using modern technique beating a 21 year old using modern technique proves modern technique is worthless.

As I promised you can see video from my today`s practice. I tested new grip of left hand in two handed forehand. Great progress. It was a real battle. This new version of two handed forehand can save tennis. Maybe it will not die.

Do you think that you are good at tennis because you use a two handed stroke or because you are athletically gifted? It looks to me like you are just a good athlete with anticipation, awareness and accuracy and your actual stroke mechanics are doing nothing to help you.

And you decry the loss of artistry in tennis and yet you play the same grinding baseline game every pro does. How is this saving tennis? Where's the volleys, the crafty approach slices, half volleys, etc. Show me that in your videos and I might be impressed. Right now you seem hypocritical recommending a stroke mechanic that takes even more artistry out of the game.

Study this for the drop volley. Take care to scratch yourself afterwards while glaring at opponent.

In video below there is second part of today`s practice. You can see more volleys and smashes as you wanted. You cant be surprised that I dont go to the net too often because he hits forehand really hard. He is Champion of Poland in +50 category from 2017. He has fastest forehand in that category in my country. It is not only fast but also flat. Even if I catch the ball at the net I am not strong enough to block it. If my first volley is not a winner then I am bombarded with quick bullets.

Really? He must have been holding back because I've seen far harder FH's from guys at the club. I recall a doubles tournament against this one 50+ fellow who hit a FH past me at the net I didn't have time to even move let alone put my racket out. Now that was a bullet. Never seen a ball hit that hard. And boy could he serve. Some of his big serves hit the back wall 6 feet high. Only guy I've seen serve better at the club is Vasek Pospisil who was routinely hitting his serves 8 feet high on the back wall. Anyways, he hit way harder than your Polish champion.

Of course there are players with fastest forehands but he really has a hammer in his hand. The camera is low so we have impression that the balls are not as fast as they really are. He is hitting almost flat so at this fast surface they dont slow down. It is carpet with quartz sand. I am a clay court player. I dont play too well on hard courts.

We established before that Federer was the best pusher of all time. His wrist is laid back during the stroke.
I don't know who you established this with but yes, Fed often leaves the wrist laid back for one class of shots and not for another type of shot. Neither shot is remotely pushing.

Regardless of your strange comments here, you are a good player.
I have a friend who hit with a two-handed forehand (a somewhat better player than you) and he decided to move to a one-handed forehand. He spent over a year working on it until it was finally as good as his two hander. When he got to where he could hit both forehands about the same, he was a better player with the one-hander because of reach as well as greater variety on his forehand.

17 year ago I injured my right wrist and was forced to play two handed forehand. After a month I played at the same level as before. My example proves that two handed forehand is much better for not too strong people than one handed. Now I couldnt play one handed forehand but using two handed I am #3 in Polish ranking in my category. Since the beginning of May I have won 8 tournaments on national level and in 2 lost in the final. It is obvious that shortened reach doesnt help but I am a very good runner so I dont complain.

There is a thread about ones best tennis skill. You should post there about your foot faulting and bunting...

Start putting money down on the coffin

I tried it. Havent played a 2 handed fh in 30 years. Took about 1:12 to get it grooved. Its the tennis equivalent of constipation.

I see that you have not proper grip in this video. Your racket is too closed. You would have great problems to play low balls. I`II try to record short video with proper grip. Right hand -western grip. Left hand semi-western but the palm of left hand should be over the right forefinger. It is very important. If feft hand is not over right forefinger then left hand blocks the movement of right hand.

I dont care to hit a 2hfh. Its a horribly limiting stroke
