Dan, I don’t know how long you’ve been coaching, but I will say that not all top players have the same techniques, also that knee problem may have to do with her movements as well. Serena doesn’t hit like Chrissy did. Movements and grips and swings, etc has evolved over the years!
Love the Videos. Great Camera angles. A lot of great things I can see in Azarenkas swing. Serve included
Ok so if I were to present a video of this player, I would 1st say: “let’s not discuss her level of play & success. Let’s just discuss her mechanics.” Because then u could have a real discussion. Because then u could say, “yes, she is a fighter & a great athlete. ” U could also say, “yes, her strokes r totally flawed,& we should not copy them.”
Lack of extension on the backhand. Horrible movement preparation. Trunk rotation on ground strokes is a foreign concept to her, obviously. The forehand is an atrocity, & worldwide we have 10 yr olds with better serve mechanics.
So please, Jorge, for god sake. If ur going to film for mechanics, be a bit more picky. U are only hurting yourself now.
Dan… I am NOT filming for mechanics. I have learned a long tome ago that tennis pros go crazy debating the mechanics of players strokes. It seems every pro has an opinion (a strong one) that they know best what to do. On my website, my goal is so bring Hi Def footage of the best players in the World for ALL to see. I would hope that YOU would be the one speaking to your students about the videos and have YOU make give your input directly to those you coach. I want coaches to use my videos to teach their theories to their players. That is why you will rarely see me putting out a lot of “technique” videos. Thanks for your input.
Great videos. Good angles, close up, and nice and slow.
