    Awesome, you'll love it! I went to WTTTC in Halmstad with some guys from my club and it was such a nice experience. We went from Thursday to Sunday, the only regret I had is that we didn't stay the...

    Yeah I totally agree and I hope my post didn't give the impression of being rigid, it's rather the opposite.

    My point was really that what if a coach came and started criticizing his technique...

    Experience and very good feeling for the ball will often beat "good looking mechanics". I say good looking mechanics because there are players that mindlessly copy the technique of pros (for the sake...

    This advice feels a bit outdated. These days To be able to quickly switch to backhand many players play FH even with their feet parallel. But it depends really from where you're hitting your FH and...

    I think it's more that I sometimes don't anticipate where the push or where the next shot is going.We're playing for fun and don't always go full out on every point, we get a bit lazy and mess around...

    I've run into a few, especially older swedes that understandably have held that belief, with those arguments, emotion and I guess nostalgia. But this has put the nail in the coffin where it's hardly...

    Stroke-style probably has to do with who you were coached by and how your peers played. The stroke would probably be adapted if you played with a very hard rubber compared to a softer rubber.

    I forgot to mention I was referring to inverted grippy rubbers. Most recent modern rubbers are grippier, this is of course important. You don't want any risk of slippage.

    My guess is that players with faster swing speeds will have better control with harder setups, to get that swing speed and consistency they have to use the body efficiently. It's quite hard to get a...

    Hey Takkyu,

    Your strokes look pretty good to me. I think you're using your body well. You are going for a pretty short backswing most of the time. Nothing wrong with that, especially for the balls...

    If it helps to think about, then I see no harm. I've been down that path and it never helped me. I don't see the serve as that different from the other strokes. With the serve most modify their grip...

    I also think it's not a good idea to do things consciously with the arm while it's being propelled by the body - speaking from own experience I have tried and failed. The legs and body propel the arm...

    I find it hard to say, but now that you point it out I agree I prefer the 3rd one. Maybe I rotated a bit more and put more pressure on my leg! Brett has told me to try to bring my right knee more in...

    I agree Carl - right is the wrong word, but even if it hurt or not, I think it was more inefficient than the alternative. Why it started hurting was probably more because I was turning my waist/hips...

    I think the wrong thing I was doing was the twisting of the hips/waist instead of pushing with my leg, and I was overtwisting to the right. Since correcting it I've had less pain but occasionally...

    I really appreciate your thoughts! The weird thing is that I find it tricky to actually remember what has gone on before, so I can't be 100% confident even in my own experience and memory of it lol....
