Yeah, 10-12 hours sleep is MirkaFed territory. You'll become a human sloth with 12 hours sleep. Maybe I'm wrong.

I respect your commitment to abstain from booze while training.

Good luck.

First time I've seen myself on video since the summer. Gotta say, on my serve, the toss is not actually as bad as I thought, but the bending up the upper back and whip through of the upper back on serve is my undoing.

Groundstrokes look good.

What does "soon" mean? Like in an hour or in a week?

Here we go:



Groundstrokes I think were pretty good, again BH slice can improve. The serve, I thought the toss was good, just need more back bend, specifically upper back bend, and more follow through with the shoulder.

Next time I play with someone else, I'll rig the camera on the fence, but with this, you basically see where I am at.

I'm firmly a believer after seeing you completely annihilate that wall. Thing must be bursting after all those bagels.

Just finished watching.

You remind me of James Blake with your 1HBH and your sleeveless

My only tip (probably not really qualified since we'd be a close match) is to get a deeper knee bend on your serve.

These are your knees:

These are Fed's:

Oh yeah, and get a hitting partner. Hitting against a wall only works up to a certain point, bruh.

Do you do accuracy trainings on the wall like standing in a particular position and hitting 5-15 shots in the same place (middle or down the line?) I reckon they are the best kind of exercise you can do to improve the accuracy of your shots if you dont have a hitting partner. Just dont overhit.

Wall defeated me, actually, he makes no errors.

Yes, Blake, I have heard that one before. Practice partners, of course. Knee bend also.

Yes, accuracy training on the wall, hitting approximately where it would be on the court.

Master troll strikes again. There is no one beyond the age of 10 who would hit against a wall in a serious context.

Having said that, your service clearly needs work, it's lacking in every department. Grunts are on point.

Messy...srsly

loads and loads of work are to be done with you my friend and it's no guarantee still.

The serve is actually horrendous, amateur style movement, really below par.

BH looks relatively OK tbh, but FH and footwork are not. You can't do this movement with your right leg with every FH strike, you can't hit all FHs almost in the air (you need to be grounded in stable position) and feet are not working the right way, no small adjustment steps, no cross steps, just jumping around.

Sorry if it sounds harsh, but only your BH looks to have potential, the rest needs to be re-done from scratch.

I admire your extravert personality, not ashamed of showing yourself in an internet forum, knowing there will be loads of criticizing (which would occur even if you played flawlessly as you know), but i can't twist my tongue, you have a lot of work to do - with a coach!

Man, the weather sure is nice in Florida.

I think I'd better abstain from commenting on the video.

Everything was Ok till i saw You serve.... WTF was that? Have you learnt serving a week back or something ? You really look like a non sports person trying to serve Tennis...
I dont want to discourage you but you have some decent groundstrokes but that serve is pathetic. Do you get those balls over the Net ?
