Congradulations on your site. I haven't had time to go look to deeply buy from what I can see it looks very good.

Yeah I know, pretty effed, hits the ball so far back :p

And he has a graf-like grip, but tries to hit topspin, that's cool :D

Great site. i like the layout. The layout of how the vids are done could be a bit nicer. I just don't like the way it looks. Maybe keep it more simple. but so far a really good site and easy to use.

the videos are awesome. i think the slowmo really helps.

but i have to agree with eveyrone else that the girl has better technique then the guys. the guys look a bit awkward when they hit. I think its cause they are using a lot of upper body.

Well as you know, Tennis is a game of different styles! As long as your style can get you a ""W" that's what matters!

You can have the most beautiful style and yet you could stink!
My theory is as long as your comfortable with your style your good to go! :)

yep, but I thought the purpose of the site was to teach the right technique. You can have little differences, but the basics, for someone who is learning, are the same. That guy in the red shirt, for instance, doesn't have the right technique: he had to move 2 feet to adjust to that backhand and the result was a moonball. The girl is on a completely different level, and you do need the right technique to improve. Sorry, that's the way I see it

yeah, you can see that immediatly. when you see the girl serve and the guys serve you can really see a big difference. girl's forehandtechnique is better then the guys too. backhandtechnique is better then the guys but i think it's her weakest stroke, especially the first backhand she plays on that video. she's leaning way foreward. Her technique on the other BHs are better though :)

definately work on your site. I think it could be a really good site for tips. just keep it simple like the way it is. Just get better players.

You should also add a tip on a Slice serve wide. (CAUSE I DESPERATELY NEED HELP WITH THAT!)

BTW the guy with the black pants is the COACH of the college team! if you don't like his strokes than that's a problem. I know not always the coach has to be a good player, but I'm talking from technique point of perspective. He knows the fundemantals of the game better than any player.. after all coaches go and get certified :) I see what you guys are sayin.. I just think STYLE is not the key its the fundementals.. for instance hitting the ball from HIGH TO LOW or vice versa.. thats wha one needs to focus on..

correct me if I'm way off :)

Agreed :worship:

Sure, so many people have different styles among the pros, but tecnique is extremely important, the guy in the white shirt has his footwork all fucked up, while the girl is great.

The black teacher is good of course, cuz he's a teacher, :p I just thought he had a bit too much of a pullback on his high vollies :confused:

When you see "Videos" there is green big box where all the movies of that category are displayed, kinda like a playlist! I hope this helps!

how the site is made.... The guys that are playing :p

You should use clips of real pros playing, people would learn much more watching them then the guys that are in the site right now, especially if the site is about tecnique

I take it you know nothing about Web Design and copyrights! You can't just go and grab clips of pros and put them on your site its ILLEGAL! copyrighted !

Those clips are made for beginners and people interested in learning the game. I dont see any site out there that comes close to my site and for FREE for the public, so before you accuse my site of being poorly done, either come up with something like it or just be quite! :devil:

I think you mean quiet*

And you asked for our opinion, should I tell you your site is great when I think it isn't?
And if you can't accept the brutal truth that your site sucks and the people playing on it suck even more, that's your tough luck.

Slice Serve:

Slice serve is an arm serve, so you will not have the hip and shoulder rotation that you have in the flat serve. You will also turn your grip over a little more counter clockwise. The ball is tossed at noon, and you swing up to the ball visualizing a nail in the sky.

:retard:

the only thing right about that is changing the grip counter clockwise.

On the backhand: 4- Follow through keeping your elbows up. Your toes should be pointing forward.

Yes, if you are mentally challenged.

And no talking bout the footwork on the volley? :confused:

The site has so many adverts that I spent half my time trying to find the content. When I did find the text, it was badly written with poor grammar and spelling, and too laid back and insincere to be taken seriously. I could go on at length to tell you everything else that is wrong with your site, but frankly I can't be bothered.

Does anybody remember the name of that really good tennis instruction site that had pictures of professional players which would change when you rolled the mouse over them, showing you all the different stages of their stroke?

Wow, that site blows donkey cock.

At least get half decent players to pose as examples. That chick's serve is worse than TonTon Serra Zanetti's.
