      Yep. Time to train. Get one of the friends you play with to do training drills till you adjust to the correct contact point.

      You could also try training with one of those mini rackets that are...

      I only watched a short amount. But something I am wondering: what are you trying to do with your serves?

      I can see what your opponent is trying to do. I can see what he wants back from his...

      I gave stickyball long enough. If that was a bot, it was a better bot than most of them. In most of the threads, stickyball was on subject. Most bots you find stuff like the Axe in a tomahawk...

      Tomahawk serve: looking for an axe? 1+1 = ROBOT or slime.

      I am leaving stickyball up for a few hours to see if he answers my PM or this. But he will soon get deleted unless he removes the links...

      I do think the answers from NextLevel should have been sufficient. The answer from Wister was perfectly adequate as well. But....

      I confess, this seems like the strangest way to go about trying to figure out the ply construction of a blade.

      The desperation is evident. But the process seems ludicrous. Blade construction...

      These days I have carved out a Saturday day off. Amazing. A day off. One day we will get William over here from the left coast, Laj to come up from Philly to NYC and have a full blown Friday,...

      The truth is, my kid spent a lot of time taking care of mom while my wife was sick. I don't want my kid to feel she has to do that for her pop as well. It is not whether she can or not. I just...

      Be careful, OSPH may start expecting you to spot him points.

      This post makes me realize how good my wife was to me. She never stopped me from playing; always was happy for me to come home in a...

      I think it is Mark V but it could be Sriver. And it is old. But it was not 10 years old in that video. 2 years, yes. Maybe now it is 10 years old. :)

      But you are exactly right about how...

      That is the thing. It is hard to see what the heck Rich Dewitt is doing to the ball. But he has magic touch and messes with spin. He is playing with Mark V rubbers. Not anti, not modern rubbers. ...

      There are also players who purposely sandbag so their rating is lower than their level so they can enter brackets they can win easily to make the money from winning the lower bracket.

      You could also post footage of you and I might say something different. Or I may not. But if you are saying the Violin is too slow for you, you most likely need to improve your technique, not get a...

      I would say to keep using the Violin until your FH loop is vicious with the Violin. If you think the Violin is a little too slow for you and you want to get better, it is most likely the right speed...

      But it is a definite pattern that people who are lower level think they are higher level than they are. And that when people are watching footage of players who are lower than top 300 in the world,...

      Okay. Since nobody else seems to be taking the bait, the two older gents in the first video I posted, at the time of the video were both rated over 2300. Both of them have been as high as 2400. ...

      Interesting. Anyone else care to venture a guess on the levels of any of the players in the videos?

      One time I posted footage of one of these two guys and someone who was really a complete beginner thought he could beat both players in the video.

      Yeah. Another thing worth understanding is how people's brains work. There are certain people who tend to overrate themselves. There are other people who tend to underrate themselves. I have...

      To me it looks mostly like you just keep practicing. You are at a decent starting place.

      I guess, something I feel is an interesting piece of information. Just like in batting in baseball, you don't necessarily have to be left handed to play left handed. An example in tennis is Raphael...

      I am not sure I see the reason for adding the rating. If the idea was to get people to put whether they were left handed or right handed, it is true that the extra category of adding a rating number...
