Re: What do you think of my strokes? Video

Aloha Nordhammer.
I like ur strokes. Damn there seems to be a lot of power u generate on both sides. Especially ur one handed backhand (i am 2handed, so that impressed me) daaamn, really good stuff!

Things i noticed:
1) Could it be, that you sometimes tend to lean back (a littttle bit) on your backhand where u rather should lean in? It seams to me that u sometimes lean in and then the stroke just looks awesome, however often u tend to go back while hitting which (even though it seems to work) doesn't look as pure as when u lean in.
2) Your little grunts with each hit are pretty funny when you pay attention to it ;D
3) Hehe i like the way you prepare ur smashes. Very good aimaing there

So had fun watching ur vid. Nice job!

Serve stronger, dont use american twist all the time.
Improve your movement sometimes you look too stiff on court.
Rotate faster with a faster swing. Use more your hip.

Over than that, good skills.

Looks pretty good , I did notice u hit every forehand with topspin thought ! A good flat forehand is a serious weapon . Also the volley,s all had spin . They look pretty good . I spin the ball a lot as well but a few flat strokes would improve your game . Over all thought you look like u got solid strokes .

Great stroke! I know absolutely nothing about mechanics and strokes, but why are you standing so far behind the baseline? It might turn into a bad habit

Good mechanics, definitely.

Overall, I think move forward moving weight transfer will do you well. You tend to approach the ball well, but kind of lay off it at the last second. Explode into the ball with all of your body's energy.

They look pretty damn good!

The ultimate tennis game:
Sampras serve
Rafas T/S forehand
Djocos flat laserbeam shot
Gasquets T/S backhand
Rafas work ethic and nerve
Federers angled slice chip shots
Edbergs Volleys

Backhand looks good, not too much I would change. Forehand looks unorthodox especially your left hand. You certainly roll around the ball, but I think the motion could be more efficient torque wise from using your core and left arm. Serve similarly could be improved for efficiency, but the racket stroke looks adequate. Keep it up I'd say and just make minor adjustments.
