If we were in person, we could settle this like 2 men. I dont think you'd be able to talk for quite awhile after that bro.

You Canadians just continue to be successful at everything, keep up the good work!

Learn how to behave all of you, it's like a fight between first graders here. You all let your mouths do the talking, it would be better to let your skills do the talking on court instead...

Re: My First Video Of Me Playing Tennis !!!

It is getting there, but you still need a lot of practice. When your game starts looking less "forced" that is when you know you are on track. Just try to be relaxed and calm when you play tennis, even if your game relies on aggression. The left leg does need to be fixed however, and needs to become a lot more consistent quickly because that is throwing off your balance and your positioning underneath the ball. But if this is your serve and you are still like about a beginner, it is a solid start.

Re: My First Video Of Me Playing Tennis !!!

Great comebacks Ty. I don't like to be a rude kid, but when someone is overly-cocky and tells lies about there game to be accepted and look good, then to post a video of skills FAR beneath his talk that would obviously carry over to all parts of your game, I think a good argument should ensue.

Re: My First Video Of Me Playing Tennis !!!

Bah give the kid a break....ok I'm doubtful he took games off Polansky as well but who cares, no need to attack him endlessly.

Anyway, Winnipeg.....as I said, my serve is very technically flawed as well but I'm still able to generate a bit of pace into it. I've been struggling with my 2nd serve lately so I went down to some shitty courts round the corner from me this morning and decided to make a video for you

http://www.dailymotion.com/user/adee...w-serves_sport

As you can see, I don't use my feet nearly enough, and as such my first serve can sometimes have a very low %. Probably not enough hip rotation as well. Unfortunately I never had lessons when I was younger and developed a lot of bad habits, it's almost impossible to totally change my serve at this stage.

Re: My First Video Of Me Playing Tennis !!!

I think everyone who is still a bit amateur has flaw serves. I used to use eastern grip from mine and used to mount too much into the ball.
Got a one-time-per-week coach again after 4 years without classes so I´m revisiting all again.
At least I can say I got a good hip rotation (but the height helps):

Re: My First Video Of Me Playing Tennis !!!

Nice service motion there, and definitely something to build on.

Not sure why you're getting such a hard time, it seems clear to me you're hitting a few looseners and aren't going full out. It's nice, relaxed and fluid which I think is the most important aspect of any serve. A lot of amateurs would love to have a serve like that, but keep working on it - there is plenty of room for improvement.

Re: My First Video Of Me Playing Tennis !!!

iltb I think your ball toss is too far over your head. It needs to be more toward the right so you can get more pace on the ball and more accuracy. Other than that it is pretty nice
