      Much appreciated, Uma, tennis online market is so saturated with so many offers that it’s really hard to sell something even if very high quality for a good price.

      Hopefully visitors will recognize the potential of the course over time…

    Hi Tomaz,

    Is hitting smash on the back leg somehow similar to hitting forehand in open stance? If yes, then should i use my hips also when hitting smash from the back lag?

      Hi Patrik,

      I wouldn’t say so, while hips do rotate, it’s not really that driven up from the leg. In open stance, you want to really push UP with legs to rotate hips, on smash off back leg you use the back leg more like a support off which you hit.

      A pro may be so athletic to actually jump well off it but we’re not.

      Focus more on really good stability and some push off the leg and then good pronation.

    Great course. I have two questions:
    1) Can you explain when we need to raise the left hand for the smash? To clarify, do we leave the left hand on the racket just until we are about to hit the ball? or do we want to raise the left hand to the ball as soon as possible?
    2 This question is more of a follow up on the first question. Some coach tell us to point at the ball. What do you think about this?

      Thanks, Phudith, glad you like the course!

      I recorded a video to answer your questions:

      And towards the end of this video article you will see a couple of exercises I would use to “wake up” the non-dominant arm:

      If you follow the first drills in this module, so Positioning Drills and Technique Progressions, you will have to catch the ball first with non-dominant arm and that will keep “teaching it” to come up and stay up.

      But generally, like I mentioned, the original problem is not feeling the basic throwing motion well so I would include throwing balls, old rackets, etc in every serve / smash session.

      I mention these fundamentals in this video article:
