View Full Version : Ever taken a video...

of yourself playing tennis?

I did recently and was surprised to see some really obvious errors in my game which I thought I was improving on. :lol: My back leg on my serve flys out to the side at contact. I even do it sometimes when I'm really concentrating on not doing it, and I can't feel that I am doing it. It looks like I am falling into the serve. I guess it's just bad habits that I do all the time and that muscle memory has become familiar, even though the technique is very bad.

Anyone else ever seen a video of themselves playing tennis and been completely surprised at how it looks?

oh yeah.

with my serve, my ball toss is usually completely off and really low. when i'm playing i really don't realize. i always think i'm tossing it real high (when i'm really concentrating) but when i saw myself on video it was higher than normal, but still low compared to usual standards!

and my stance while hitting a forehand is gross!
