Assorted Footwork

Use this clip as a footwork drill. We added tips in text overlays, slow motion, and cropping just to the feet to help you spot the key movements. Each segment starts with loading on the split step before making a quick movement toward or away from the ball.

Backhand - Slow Motion

You might want to practice while watching these clips in slow motion. They are the same clips that you see in real time for the one handed backhand. Slow down and get the feel of the correct stroke. Then move to the real time clips to perfect the feel and the form.

Flat vs kick serve

Flat Serve vs Kick Serve - Super Slow Motion

(To play, click on blue "back"button to see back view). In this one clip you will see Alex serving a flat serve and a kick serve. The clip begins with a freeze frame with a red and blue vertical line. The red line is an indication of the axis at contact for the flat serve. The blue line, displaced to the left, is an indication of the axis at contact for the kick serve. You will see these two lines throughout the clip to help you distinguish the toss and hit for these two serves. Note that the head remains under the blue axis on both tosses. That last few seconds of the clip accelerates to real time on the kick serve, just so you can see the energy of the serve.

Forehand - Components with pauses and slow motion

Use this video to hit anchor points in Celeste's forehand. The captions announce how each segment will play. Some segments will pause, some play in slow motion, others play without pauses. This variety is meant to let you get you mind around both the component structure of the forehand and the flow from one component to the next as you shadow swing while watching Celeste.

Forehand - Progressive Components Slow Motion to Regular

We broke down the forehand into four components: Take Back with Non-dominant Hand, Racket Face Down, Racket Butt Out, then Racket Pull and Roll. Each component ends with a freeze frame to give you a visual of the anchor point. Check your own image at these points to compare and correct. Begin this drill with the Right perspective. In this view each component begins with slow motion, then medium, then regular speed. The drill ends with a few loops of the whole stroke at regular speed and no freeze frames. Use this six minute clip as a drill to structure your forehand around these four components to increase your efficiency of movement, racket head speed, and top spin. The Front view clip is not so repetitive but will give you more information about the approach of the ball.

Forehand - Running, High Ball, Top Spin

Watch footwork to reach ball hit wide. Notice the low to high movement of the racket and the finish on the right side of the head. Clip down in slow motion with repeat action on low to high movement of the racket.

Forehand - With Anchor Points

In this clip we have two freeze frames that you could use as anchor points to guide the shape of your forehand stroke. We start this clip in slow motion so you can practice hitting these anchor points as you shadow swing. The clip changes from half speed to three-quarter speed to full speed twice and then repeats. You might want to play this on full screen for a few minutes to better see the two freeze frames. Then revert back to regular size screen so that you can watch yourself in the screen on the right. Don't forget to watch yourself. You can also make a screen recording to review your shadow swing frame by frame (Go to Help tab to see how to make a screen recording).
