Excellent help for me. I had not seen this example before.
Great! If possible, (on a limited budget, I’m sure) it would be nice to see other camera angles) maybe from above?)
Always enjoy seeing your stuff Jorge, to add to your Y theory I usually stress to my students to start as your daughter does with a more pro backhand favor maybe due to the larger percentage of the tennis populous being forehand dominant. Having greater success receiving backhands due to a pre focus on backhand readiness, through my experience I have not seen this to interfere with their forehand readiness. What have you experience or do you have different stance?
Thanks again for sharing,
Jorge. It is good to see the same return of serve principle applied whether you are a RUNNER or ROLLER.
In wheelchair tennis it is imperative to be moving forward when the server begins their toss. This puts the chair in motion. The only difference is we maintain motion since the 16 – 20 degree angle of our wheels already represents a split step. I teach moving forward at an angle in the direction of the server which gives you the ability to adjust the chair to the forehand or backhand side
Once again thank you for your videos,greats Tips,,,!!!
Great stuff. As a 37 year USPTA member, love to pickup new tidbits. You do a wonderful job. Look forward to next video!
Good advice as always. Any difference u suggest when receiving second serve other then to start at the base line and move forward on the toss? Steve
Steve, I generally move my starting point in closer to the court, but still keep my “creep” pre-movement in place.
Excellent Tips – Very Helpful.
This is great, Jorge. I’ve taken this one step (no pun intended) further by in my book ‘Late Call – Healthy Tennis for the Older Young at Heart’ – where you so graciously provided a promo blurb – and identified the dominate foot. This foot becomes the one farther out front and leads the forward momentum. I’ll be sharing your video with my students 🙂
Best theory and best application to singles and doubles! I’ll be working on this today. Thank you so much. Pat
Good job Jorge. Great to see the family involve. Everyone is looking great.
All the best,
