I always like how you break down the videos. This really helps me when I am on the courts teaching my students. I usually play the video first to give them a mental image then we practice it. Thanks again!
Hi Jorge – always great to see The Fed’s ‘poetry in motion’… besides these footwork differences, as illustrated, love the fluidity in his strokes… the best!
I incorporate your tips in my lessons, especially fluidity in strokes and will add this footwork consideration.
Thanks again for all you do for all of us out here 🙂
Thanks Paul, I a glad the videos are helping.
Once more introducing very interesting things. The key here is this two videos at the same time, much easier to compare and for analysing technical issues.
Thank you very much!
Nice slow motion comparison. Love to be able to keep my head behind the ball, racket out in front like he does. I’m thinking with open stance I may improve my ability to do that. Was taught racket back body sideways method. Old school.Tough to teach an old dog new tricks. Thanks for all you do.
Awesome… Good luck with that.
Great comparison of forehands. Most professional and instructional, as usual.
Interesting comparison Jorge. Do you recommend open stance for cross court FH which gets the left hip out of the way , and step in for deep middle FH and closed stance or crossover stance for down the line FH?
I Like the open stance a lot… It all depends on how much time you have to set up for the ball and what recovery needs you will have so it is a shot by shot decision.
I like how you use the side by side comparison really makes a good point. Federer has a lot of different ways of moving and always fun to see it in slow motion. As a tennis professional it is also great having you take the time to breakdown different shots for our viewing as well. I appreciate that. Jorge always a class act and always helpful in providing more knowledge.
