Add'l Points - lateral tilt (left shoulder higher than right); chest angled upward (spinal extension); torso rotated towards back of fence; impact occurs whilst wrist is radially deviated (thumb upward) for powerful shoulder pronation; Index finger spread for leverage

Pronate entire arm (from shoulder to hand) thru impact

Feel Tennis: Add a small pop with wrist (like a trampoline effect) at moment of impact ... but this is absorbed into the full swing and is imperceptible to the naked eye

April 9, 2022 ... Toss over head ... Right shoulder lower than left ... cartwheel into impact ...hit upwards

Power position see legs bent ...and racket diagonally in front of shoulders ... now fire the legs and cap points to the sky

Traveling up to the ball, feel like you are throwing a knife to the sky

#6 Pronation is effected by the "elbow snap" not a wrist snap ... the wrist snaps due to the action of the elbow and the looseness of the wrist ... if you "snap" from the elbow all arm links (shoulder/elbow/wrist) will contribute to the impact at contact

Follow thru: add left side bend to the follow thru and de-emphasize the fwd bend from the waist ... avoids hitting net.

Leg Power: Hips bend diagonally into court ...Left hip higher than Right ... with knees bent and Right knee bent more than Left ... this will enable power from Legs and the Cartwheel of Shoulders

Try NOT to fall LEFT after impact ... just incorporate a little left side bend ...weight must fall forward towards opponent but avoid lowering torso excessively

The 'Racket Up on Edge" is a PULLING motion ... not a push ... pull the handle and try to hit the back fence ... control will come later

3 "ARM" thoughts as racket travels up to ball: Hammer - Turn - Finish

slice serve - at impact, torso faces to opposite court; TopSpin Serve - Stay sideways at impact

As you go into impact, you should experience a falling feeling (like falling into a swimming pool sideways)
