This is my tennis video clip. It's easier for you to see the details by using full screen display.
I normally use single-handed backhand but now I want to have more control. My new double-handed backhand is shown in the first half of the clip.
The second half shows my serve using pinpoint stance (as opposed to platform stance). Some say that platform stance (feet apart) is much better, popularized by "Pistol" Pete Sampras.
I prefer to hit the ball near apex since it is easier to hit due to deceleration by force of gravity. My grip is loose near impact to create more efficient whip.
Please let me know what you think of my techniques. I need to learn more from you experts :)
-Should I take the ball earlier during groundstroke?
-Should I adopt more modern open stance during groundstroke?
-Should I jump higher during serve?
-Is hitting the ball near apex a good thing?
-Should I toss the ball higher?
