    Very good video Jorge! I wanna ask what type of grip do we have to use esp for the fast serve we receive? Thanks.

    Thanks so much for your videos. The 5 system is great. Something new for me that I will definitely use in lessons. Question – should the follow through on the 3rd type of return – the chip be a 5? It looks like Carly is stopping hers a bit short.

      Dana, Thanks for watching the video. I would recommend that you try it and experiment. Every players is a bit different with what they feel comfortable with.

    Jorge, Another great video. You’re consistency in content is great, just like a great game of tennis; consistency wins. I love the system 5 myself. I use it frequently. The best take back is your mention of reception skills. I’ve never heard it called that before, so I am stealing it and using it for my own lessons. Thank you for giving us more tools in our tool box. On the counter-punch return, the second phase of returns in this video, I think it’s important to note that Carly is making contact 2-3 steps inside the baseline, whereas on the first set of returns she’s making contact right at the baseline and maybe 1 step inside the baseline. This allows for a little more time for that bigger backswing to fit into the shot. Keep up the great work. I know you will. I love how you hit your bullet points as your checklist of things to cover. Your content is well organized and consistent.

    Thank you for your teaching point that provides the tools to improve my return of serve as a recreational player.
    Using the 5″ system has given me more awareness of touch and feel.
    Sincere thanks and I look forward to future learning opportunities.

    Great tips – I use the same “system 5” in all my teaching strokes – takes me back to the 80’s and it is still good today. Keep up the great work.
