Tennis video

Yes, I swing the rackets. I used to play back in the day. Elementary school, junior high, high school, and very little afterwards. I might get into detail one day, but the key right now is the footwork. I use a cross over step which is Jimmy Connors style. My last coach reworked my entire mechanics to bring me to this style. I previously had an open stance which is ala Nadal, but he switched me to this classic style. My forehand is the strongest of my shots. That was the main weapon I had. Some of the forehands you see are as hard as anyone’s forehands can be. They’re just inches off the net and landing near the backline, super low. I need some work on the backhand side for sure, but it comes from rust. I haven’t played much in the last 20 years, so it’s slowly coming back. Yes, I’ll admit I wanted to play collegiately and even professionally, but I wasn’t even close. In the background, you can hear my cousin Jon. Unlike skatevideos, where you hear people say “whooaahhh,” his words are encouraging in another way. That’s why he teaches.
