    NDH, I love your feedback. I will post a video of my form against the robot soon.

    Some comments.
    I was looking at the computer screen on the side to check my form as I did a shadow swing.
    So...

    NDH. I did have a big issue with my lack of relaxation then I posted my first post which was some days ago. I have worked on it over last few days and feel I am getting on top of it, at least against...

    Thanks for all the comments. I liked that video that was posted.

    I forgot to add the real issue is how to get a totally relaxed arm that I feel is needed at the beginning of the forward stroke. If...
  5. Changing from european forehand to chinese issues!

    I have a forehand where the arm is slightly bent on the end of the backswing.
    I wish to change this to having the arm much more bent at the end of the backswing and then straighten it more just...

    This ties in with Bretts advice to delay the backswing so the elbow is going back as the body is going forward. I looked at slow motion on his backspin forehand serve and he is clearly doing this.

    This was Bretts exact reply to this issue. He clearly is on another level compared to my technical knowledge. Anyone want to explain his comment about leading with the elbow?

    Its interesting that you get differing advice from coaches about the serve motion. I actually asked Brett Clark the question about tightening up the fingers on ball contact 2 days ago and he said 50%...

    I think most coaches give incomplete advice. You create racket head speed in the backhand by fast forearm speed and then stopping the arm to create a wrist whip action. You see a wrist shake at the...

    I much prefer Ma Longs and Harimotos body work in the backhand compared to Pitchford's backhand. Pitchford's backhand is excellent but the game is becoming faster and faster. These 2 pros squat and...

    Here is a shadow swing video I made for one of my students of how the elbow comes out from the body in the backhand as the body goes up. This is a no backswIng before the back whip pattern. Its a bit...

    Cytivrat, Check out how Harimotos elbow comes out as the bat goes back for the backswing. Body comes up and forward as the bat goes back allows a more effortless faster swing and should reduce your...

    I know Brett Clark is working on an app that uses machine learning to give you advice about your playing technique real time. I am looking forward to testing it out as I respect his coaching advice.

    One drill that works wonders with my pupils is the double bounce drill. Against slow block on your backhand do a mini bounce between strokes. If you get more advanced to 2 mini bounces. You can also...

    I got this simple tip from my level 3 coach who has one of the best serves in my country.

    One thing that has not been covered by some excellent posts above.

    The back swing before the forward whip action has to be delayed as long as possible. So the body is moving forward first and...

    I agree that you are doing great after one year of training. As a qualified coach I try to teach the use of the body to beginners. Everyone teaches rotation for the forehand but many do not teach...

    He asked about his form. I see a key missing element in his backhand form so I made my comment. Adding some body movement to support the arm movement would improve the shot. I disagree with you that...

    Your backhand is all arm. Look at how the pros use their body to support the arm movement. They squat and rise up keeping the angle of their body the same against topspin for a off the bounce...

    The first is stamp on the spider.

    I checked and the app is working fine for me. I have not used it for a while but on the serve module I was picking the spin type much better than when trained with it a year ago.

    I was wondering what amount of revs per minute a typical club player produces vs a pro player in...
