Post all your videos of you playing
 
Hey guys, just making a thread so that we can all post our own videos of ourselves playing tennis whether it is by ourself, practicing or in an actual match. At the same time, we can all critique each other or congratulate/be in awe at how good someone is. This isn't GM and people who come to section subsection are all actually quite legitimate and genuine with each other so I don't expect many people to just talk trash here.

Looks good to me HKz (but then I don't know much about tennis, yet) I've already posted some clips of me serving so I think I've done my bit for now (will try and get some clips of me hitting some groundstrokes, it won't be pretty :-)

Thanks ;)

Don't worry about your groundstrokes. Honestly, the way my first coach taught groundstrokes to his students was to just hit the ball as hard as we could for many weeks and slowly form started to come as we layed off the pace naturally because we learn how to hit through the ball rather than learning how to dink it and get it back in the court.

You serve lefty and play righty...?

I would understand if you had a strong left hand and then played a double-handed backhand but you play a one-handed one.. You aren't worried that when you actually play the top players that that will take even more time away from you to react to a big return?

I don't know. Doesn't seem like you switch the hands too fast even in those videos, but then again looks like you're still young and the game at your age probably isn't developed enough to have that a worry. Good luck I guess :eek:

My father is a Palestinian/Russian/Kazakstanian (hence my last name "Al-Kazak") mix and my mother is full Japanese.

Well I wrote that Muse cover before Uprising's full version was leaked. I used the 30 second video Muse released to the radio station to make an improv of the whole song. If you liked that cover, you should check out my song "Honest Terror" :)

Good video by the way, however I think you should hit through the ball more. It seems like you are trying the windshield wiper technique on the forehand too exaggerated and the backhand you aren't lettting it flow through.

It just doesn't make sense to me. When you develop both your arms for particular aspects, you can't combine them together at least? I mean Nadal would be a perfect example of this and he makes use of his ambidextrous talent to have a ridiculous backhand. It would make sense to me to do that, like serve with one hand and also use that same hand for a double-handed backhand or forehand....

Ever consider that your unique ability could be why it is hindering other aspects of your game such as your other topic of returning kickers?

I mean I know you guys can say that you have always played like this, etc, but in my opinion, it just doesn't work physically. I mean if you look at players such as Moya, Nadal or Santoro even, they have it right because they combine the strengths of both arms since they are all ambidextrous, rather than having each arm do a special job.

I don't know, just doesn't make sense to me.

Thatīs because I started playing on clay, so i got used to create a bit of topspin.
I know what you mean, I need to play more times per week to flow better the shots. Also I hit a bit late sometimes, need to work in timing.
