    Same question as Pete T: how to create depth?
    If the racket is going UP it is not going forward that much at the same time.
    Otherwise super helpfull instructions!

      Actually having a more vertical racket path will create plenty of height on your ball…and height + racket speed = depth.

    Guilty on the 1st point. My problem is all the best instruction goes out the window when I’m playing a match. Great video!

    How do you add depth? I have a bad habit of swinging a bigger angle, low to high, trying to lift the ball and I get a lot of topspin but It barely clears the net. A pro told me to hit out more and the highest point of my arc should really be at the opponent’s service line or “blue line”. I would love that but my mind is telling me the highest point of the court is the net and I need to shape the ball so that the highest point of the arc is at the net. And what do you mean “someone like Mark”? Mark is awesome! A shout out from the Midwest! Lol

      Everything in moderation Pete. Hard to say without actually seeing you hit, but if you’re swinging that aggressively from low to high and you’re barely clearing the net it sounds like you’re getting too carried away. Try and catch a little more ball which should help you gain more depth without changing much else.

      Using the opponent’s service line as where your ball should peak is a little extreme unless you’re hitting a ton of topspin. Focus more on doubling the height of the net as a target (in general) while keeping your racket speed up at a decent clip.

      Also Mark is a Packer fan from Wisconsin…he’s just asking for it!
