    Kind of a silly effort, running around. Why not just rip a backhand to the same targets and save the wasted footwork energy?

      If you prefer your backhand vs your forehand, than I’d agree with you. However Federer, Nadal and countless other pros constantly use this to setup their forehands.

Any tips on keeping your head down through the stroke please? I know I should do it and when I remember to it has a beneficial effect but its the remembering that’s the prob ! Any tips I could try?

      It’s OK to lift your head naturally with the stroke but keeping your eyes throughout contact can be helpful. Just like anything else in the sport you have to focus and practice it repeatedly.

    Yes, that in to in approach puts you in a better position automatically. Never thought of that , thanks, will try.

    Hi Brady – thanks for today’s lesson – at about 4:30 you twirl your racket with precision – man, that was kind of cool.
    Kinda like a gunslinger twirling his gun. Wow.

      I don’t even realize I do it. Probably just a nervous twitch haha. Thanks for watching Mike!

    Regarding you showing the inside out forehand and saying “don’t fall in love with the shot and not move to the open side” is right on. Otherwise, even if you hit the ball a ton, all your opponent has to do is hit a ‘fair’ deep shot down the line to win the point after you’ve done all the work. Great video showing both inside in and inside out and then the follow-up put-away shot. I might just follow-up to say that the 2nd shot/volley that you hit (if you have to) doesn’t necessarily have to be away from your opponent; it can be at his/her feet back in the same place or, better yet, hit behind him/her. It just depends upon how far behind and off the court they are. Great video.

      Thanks for the insightful comment Jim! I agree the volley can definitely go back to the same location, especially if you want to hit behind your opponent or your approach didn’t get your opponent totally off the court.

      Yes I started sending sending my email subscribers to the website. On the website you don’t have the 4 second intro ad and also there are no pop-up ads either, like there are on YouTube. Just trying to create a better overall experience for you!
