    Yes, so much great stuff in this very succinct article. Gold standard, Nadal and Fed forehand(and yes, Andre pre Fed), Sampras and Roddick serve, Gasquet and Stan 1 handed backhand.

    On a side notw, Pat Dougherty, the "serve doc", who at one time was a member here at tennisplayer.net, sold a product he called the "leverage band", which to me was a superior product to the wrist assist. I have one and still hit balls with it occasionally. It absolutely ensures one hits the forehand with "leverage", an extended wrist. Most recreational players would probably find they could not even strike the forehand with this product on.

    Great imagery of shoulder rotation! The modern tennis racket, it seems, has allowed many to overemphasize pronation/supination in modern strokes instead of shoulder rotation. Arm Injuries have seemed to switch over the years from elbows to wrists.

    Interesting perspective. I'll never think about my forehand the same way again <g>.

    Having had surgery on my TFCC (triangular fibrocartilage complex) I, sadly, have more familiarity with Dr. Hamori's terminology than I'd care to.

    After a few "debridements" in the area above the ulna styloid he mentions my wrist swells every time I go on court.

    Sometimes it seems when I just look at a tennis court.
