    Yeah you are probably right! Thanks for the great words! Check out the serve course--other strokes coming up.

    I loved your course John, and watched every lesson. My only suggestion (which I mistakenly posted somewhere else) was to reverse the order of the lessons on the web page, so the first lesson is on top rather than on the bottom. This course is your masterpiece, and you don't want the table of contents to be backward, so that the first impression of a new student (like me) is one of confusion.

    Curiosity,

    All sounds good.

    DB,

    It can be dangerous--but where would we be without it??

Just had my final 'treatment' two weeks ago. They tell me eventually I'll have much more energy. They say by December I'll likely be up to my old obstreperous self. I've been playing again for about eight weeks.... with very understanding hitting partners. Happy me.
    Curiosity…killed the cat.

    Attendant lag and external shoulder rotation! Those are topics for your article as we discussed awhile ago. I am staying away from most of the more technical terminology and talking mainly about the positions and how to move between them.

    Would be great to have you do something along the lines of Chas's serve articles but for the forehand.

    I join with those who find the piece an excellent coherent summary of the essentials of (that part of) the contemporary forehand. I look forward to Part II. Your "Advanced Tennis" series of articles provide a solid expansion of the material, should people seek that.

    It is remarkable to me how many aspiring players (especially serious rec players) don't know what needs to happen to set up racquet lag and (attendant) external shoulder rotation. I don't know that you could include that level of detail without undermining your goal for the new two-part presentation.

    Trout Fishing in America has interfered with many a serious project, which is the point of it, really!

    PV,

    Good news I have just completed my self-cloning and have put JY Number 2 on the case.

    Kidding. I didn't put him on the case. He's trout fishing.

    The article formats on Tennisplayer vary. The forehand piece you saw is just half of the introduction and all those parts will be broken down into detailed step by step articles over the next few months.

    There is a long series of text and animation articles on the forehand in Advanced Tennis that covers much of the same material. But it's a great idea--just don't think JY Number 2 is coming in from the stream.

    Text and animation format?

    Great video, John. Any chance that you could post a version with text and animations? Or perhaps a summary article?

    I like the video format because it's easy to digest the first time around. However, these articles are pretty deep; the kind that you'd like to refer to again and again. For that purpose, I like the text and animations because I can skip to one part of the motion that I want to focus on. Same is true for your serve series; I want to go back to review some parts, but it's easier if I don't have to watch the whole video over again.

    Required viewing for all tennis coaches. Great work John. Detailed but not over anyone's head. Comprehensive and educational.

    This is a tour de force. The mark of it's mastery is the effortless matter of fact and clear discussion of many things about the forehand that most players and most coaches don't know or understand or causes their heads to spin. Been away on a long underseas journey. No giant squid left. Glad to be back on the tennis courts.
