Azarenka vs Halep – forehand comparison
Thanks Coach Jorge. Nice analysis.
Hello Jorge – this analysis will be so helpful. Your easy-to-understand methods of describing each phase will be beneficial. I’m a 4/4.5 who has dramatically improved my forehand the past 5 yrs due to these technical adjustments (I had a 70s-80s “special” LOL). My husband is a 3.5, and he has been struggling with extension (wants more topspin/margin over the net). I will share this with him to help show how extension produces results vs the severe low-to-high stroke path that creeps into his game and often defeats his purpose. Thanks!
Glad it helped!
Oh yes you’re so right Jorge, the jewel is in the extension of the racket after contact reaching up towards target. Weight on front foot and body standing tall. Shown beautifully.
Great frame by frame coaching technique. Re the finish (point 6), an old coach/friend of mine would always say, “Eat your elbow.”
Thanks for alll your videos!
I like that ; )
Dear Coach Capestany,
Most informative video on the forehand…and loved the way you brought in the vampires. Cheers for sharing once again
Like the video
Thank you Jorge – great analysis.
I was always under the impression that the racquet head had to come from a much lower point to create the heavier top. .
It is wonderful to really understand what “ideal” looks like and try to use that knowledge to improve my game.
The previous Serve Analysis really helped both my serve and, even more so, my brother’s serve. I don’t think he ever aced me before the lesson. Upon reflection; perhaps I should not have shared the tips with him 🙂
Well done COACH. Keep up the Great Work.
Is there an ideal time to unlock the wrist,after you hv extended toward your target? Are is it by feel,&somewhat natural?
Quality Jorge – well done (as always)
Am working with someone whose forehand is all over the place, so this is very excellent to show, Thanks much. Like the concept of “range of acceptability.”
Very helpful to see the stroke in “segments”!
perfect coaching sir
I noticed at the point of contact, Halep is still turned somewhat while Azarenka is completely facing the net. Is that included in the range of acceptability? Azarenka’s feet are facing the net but Halep is more at a 45 degree angle. Halep would get a bit more torque on her stroke??
Yes I do think that is in the range of acceptability. If you watched her hit multiple shots those would be small changes within each shot.

Very good, Jorge:……Thanks you

I love this video, a lot of good stuff. Would I be wrong to say if the ball was lower and the contact was lower, these ladies would have more weight on their front foot?
You would not be wrong. I think that would likely be the case. I believe the same thing would happen if they were moving way forward to reach a ball.
another very good video analysis by Jorge
