Watch how he wraps the arm around his body.
You are already on their, I think there is a fee if you want to update and add to your profile, not sure of the cost. Good recruiting tool for college coaches if that is your goal.
It was harder than I expected. He was much slower and I was a better attacker. Once CoachV posts my new video of my forehand, it will be a different conversation. How can I join or do TRN?
Thanks Brandon for understanding what I have tried to say clearly. All you need is all the fine adjustments that Fed does with his "pull" forehand. This type of forehand is distinctively different from a regular "push" forehand. These adjustments are done at the wrist, simply because the arm is nearly/already straight coming into the ball (elbow close to locked position). And there are only two possible wrist positions from that point on: flexion and ulnar deviation. Once you know how to use that correctly and wisely in different situations as Coach V mentioned, along with the different stances and leg bends, you will have a very good pull type forehand.
You must have a great hand/eye to the ball to play squash and beat Coach V. That is no small feat!
I understand why you would think I am mimicking, it doesn't seem natural know, but that you for hearing me out. I have realized lately, but I have heard that all my life. What is TRN?
Well, looking at the video again, I can only think that your forehand stands to benefit from comparing to Federer. Maybe you don't intend to mimic his forehand, I'll take your word for it. But you would never see that type of forehand even 5 years ago being done by a non professional.
Fed's style of play has influenced many, many people , even the hacks at the public park I play at. One guy does everything as close as possible to Fed. He is actually pretty good at it sometimes.
From what I see, you do not use a loop backswing. You don't go low to high steep, but more level with a small low-to-high path. You pronate and finish below your left shoulder at times. All these details are characteristic of the Fed forehand. And that is not natural. A loop swing is natural. A straight back is natural. Your swing is more advanced than either of these swings. I hope you accept that. :)
no problem, it's just that habits become routines, and many can cause technical flaws, but if its working for you than by all means continue with it. It will be cool to track your progress on TRN.
It is an all natural swing, I am not trying to mimick the Federer forhand. I agree with the balamce and knee bending. Why would I practice spinning my racket, I'm sorry but that makes no sense, it is just a habit ever since I was little.
