    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....

    No problem! I just wanted to clarify. I wouldn't have brought it up if it weren't the case that a very high rated Swedish player told and showed me what I was doing. Then I thought to myself,...

    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.
    In my case my mental model of the stroke...

    Even though Dima did an incredible job winning against Anton, it felt like Anton was the better player.

    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...
