I think the comparison is excellent , it shows the fluidity of federer s motion compared to halep s slightly awkward motion , I believe Serena is the best female player of all time as she has the best most consistent serve of all time , her serve never breaks down at crucial moments as she in my opinion has perfect technique , I think female s need to spend more time on serve technique rather than hitting ground stokes for a large percentage of practise time
I think you missed a fundamental mistake on Halep s serve , her elbow on her serving arm goes higher than her shoulder a common technical error with female players as they waste time by having to drop the arm before coiling into motion and have trouble syncing the knee bend with optimal power at contact
Are you suggesting that Halep at around 1:02 should be leg loading prior to the foot-up portion of the pinpoint stance?
Scott, at that time (1:02) stamp she is showing virtually no leg load at all.. Most of the research says that she should be loading into that back leg by then.
Absolutely great video! Thanks for posting!
From an instructional standpoint the major take aways are the racket drop positions of Roger , leading the serve strike with the elbow, and the correct pronation. Super instructional video. Keep them coming!!!!
Interesting. I prefer Roger’s serve.
Like we were taught by Dennis.
Thanks, Jorge ♡
Jorge, spot on.
Another reason to use video.
Would like to see comparison of Fed and Serena!!
Thanks Diane, maybe I’ll make that video of Serena and Roger
Great video analysis…after 1:45-2:45 in the video Halep’s right arm (elbow) is high to the point of possible shoulder rotator impingement…she does drop it (about 3:00)…Fed’s right elbow stays lower and he gets a natural shoulder cartwheel effect…good stuff, thanks
Always brilliant Jorge – thank you
Jorge I love the clarity of this !Will show to my students!
This video is superb in that the breakdown comparison you show displays what is and is not important for generating a solid service motion. Your commentary about positioning of the hands’ pronation, and what key points to observe is shown so clearly with this clip. Thanks, Jane
I really love this video and same time explaining what to do, and what are the points to be keep in mind. Great video, will definitely love to see more serve comparion.
What I see is that Simone is very good, but her serve have to improve a lot to stay longer in the top positions!!
It’s only my opinion.
And yes the comparative with Roger, the best player in the tennis history is for her like a dream !!!
I learned a lot from this video!!
Great commentary in debunking the wrist snap!!
Nice, really helps you to see the key points.
Thanks, fantastic !! I love these comparison vids.
Many thanks for your help.
No wrist snap. But I used to think that only the forearm rotates. It appears the whole arm and elbow rotate inwards.
That’s right Sam
Great stuff for myself, Jorge. As I coach w/c players, your points re: the shoulder/wrist IR/pronation well-taken. Will find ways to put that across with simplicity and clarity. Your pause at the elbow leading position is graphic. Will work with my students on that (the overhand throw.) I also encourage the racquet shoulder drop during the toss (when possible) to facilitate the remainder of the stroke. Thank you!!!
I love the way you present things, as far as the service motion is concerned did you take in consideration that the woman s wrist and muscle mass is much less than the men’s
Love all your drills and energy on the courts.
N e 1 4 10 is
That’s a puzzle to our players.
Thank you very much 🤗
