Re: Post all your videos of you playing

Here's a video of me hitting some forehands in the Summer of 2008:



I also have clips of backhands and serves but I've improved those shots a lot from the clips taken in 2008, whereas the forehand has always been my strenght and probably the forehands in this clip are close to what they are now (slightly worse though ).

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

The direct translation is "sand grass" . It's kind of synthetic grass with some sand on top of it. Low bounce.

Finland's not the place to have real grass

Indoor (and Outdoor) hard. In the summertime clay is also popular. How about you?

Nice video, Dartmarcus. Some solid hitting there. But it seems like that your backhand is much more solid than the forehand, though. Maybe you should try to put less topspin on the forehand, try to hit more flat, more through the ball, instead over it. But anyway, good video and good technique

Re: Post all your videos of you playing

There are a lot of players where the forehand has more spin than the backhand, I dont feel its such a big problem if he can flatten it out in the right hour.

Thanks! Agree with you. I have improved my backhand a lot in the last couple of months. As for forehand, sometimes I try to hit it flatter but some stupid UE make me think like: "Oh, I'd better put much spin and at least put everything into court ". I will try to upload another video with me playing points soon
My main tennis weaknesses right now are volleying (have got big problems finishing the volleys at the net)and serve (low 1st serve percent and 2nd serve is too easy for opponent). Also suffer from some shoulder problems.

Mardy Fish!
