    The audio is excellent – you can hear your voice so clearly and your instruction is so helpful!
    I would like to ask if you can incorporate some slow motion of the shot you are explaining – the spin, for example – it is hard to see it when you are just learning! I love your videos – so helpful!!!

    A. You have to show this tip with your partner moving with you toward the net.
    B. Show the realistic speed and scenario of your opponent’s return and volley move, because your video shows simple practice shots.

    What about playing with beginners to advance beginners that slice and bang the ball with out consideration of having a NvZ game at all. Kill Kill Kill. Drives me nuts. They don’t learn the game, and many I have observed are getting injured because of crazy un controlled play.

    Nice video. What grip do you recommend?

    The drop in the NVZ corner makes it difficult for your opponent to hit back down the line but sets them up for a cross-court roll.

    does your grip need to change for topspin?
