The make it clear without resorting to ad hominem arguments and useless logic, chump. Please, 21 is a "grown man?" Laughable--we're talking about tennis here but if you want to compare knowledge, I'll bite. Join me at UCLA medschool sometime, I'll show you around.

Quoted twice for good measure

By the way, I think you're complete bullshit. How does "never put spin on the ball with your wrist" become "don't use your wrist to put spinon the ball after the ball passes the strike zone without completing your swing." That isn't even sound advice in itself. I hope you realize that Scarecrows' emoticon is the "no" emoticon.

@the Original Poster, since you found the problem already though, good on you. Pick and choose what advice you follow around here carefully

Re: Help! My forehand is killing me

Most problem with beginners learning forehand is the position of the wrist....too many beginners snap their wrist forward to hit the ball. Sure, acomplished players will use the wrist in different ways to hit the ball, but FUNDAMENTALLy, beginners need to keep the wrist firm. Tennis elbow and other wrist/arm injuries come from bad technique...Learn the correct fundamental...you'll be injury free. By the way, if you have bad habit with your wrist, you might want to check out this tip http://www.tennisracketbracket.com/t...s_drills.shtml Go to the forehand link...good luck

Re: Help! My forehand is killing me

bad techniques always leads to injuries. Most common thing to do for beginners on the forehand is to actually snap the wrist forward. Remember, your body should swing your arm instead of your arm swinging the racket
