    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...

    This. It's easy to watch from the couch and be like he should've done this, should've done that. I'm fairly certain Harimoto and his coaches know better than anyone here and did the best they could...

    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 get the feeling the vast majority agree that the player has control, it sounds ridiculous to think that equipment themselves have control and doesn't seem that's what people are thinking when they...

    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...

    It's funny how it works. I had a similar experience a while ago. There was one set where we had a couple of good points - I lost the match but still felt happy about it. Then I watched the match and...

    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...

    @NL thank you, this is very helpful advice, recently I was trying to do the backswing closer to my body and I will try to do it even more like you say. I think before I've been doing the backswing...

    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....

    I'm unsure if it was the discussion that I brought up or if there's been some other one about that. In either case I don't think it should be a major focus.

    I think the twist/hip rotation is more the older style backhand, which of course can still be used and effective, especially when there is time. The bottom-up/bowing motion seems to be the new...
