    It’s great that you’re trying to teach this FH as we see a bunch of the top
    ATP players using it vs. the “double bend”.

    Double check you SSC doorknob explanation! It looks like the body forces
    are creating the “racket flip” movement via inertia/opposite forces vs. a
    “forced and intentional” arm segment twisting action as you are describing.
    Watch Nadal rear view in super slow motion to see this unwinding action
    initiated by the legs bending in sync with arm straightening and extending
    to trigger the rest of the kinetic chain driving/”slinging” the racket into

    This fundamentally alters the learning of this stroke. We should explore
    this further. Thanks for your efforts to bring greater awareness and get
    players to consider and try this important FH approach and style.

    The steright arm has another isde effect which you can see on your own on
    your video! Having the intention of the streight arm, automatically you go
    much more behind with your arm, ad get a BIG BACKSWING. Federer can
    technically manage it that he goes from the high preparation of his racket
    down and 45 degrees upo, but an average player cannot manage this,
    impossible! He will automatically get a big back swing and modern tennis is
    for a small backswing, big wrist movement and big ending of the shot!?

    Is the racket slightly closed on contact??

    Clay I agreed with your lag and snap video I am not agreeing this one. Only
    Federer and Nadal are using the streight arm forehand technic. All the
    other players have the arm bent, see Djokovic.This is because the bent arm
    is giving much more controle and is more natural. The streight arm is
    putting high pressure to the arm and can lead to injuries as well. It is
    also much more diffoicult to be relaxed with a streight arm!?

    i have been doing research on the double bend vs strait arm and double
    seems to be overall better even though straight arm gives you maybe more
    power and spin, could you compare the 2??

    Physics doesn’t work out with your explanation. Longer arm length will give
    you more travel distance, but less speed. Shorter arm will give more speed,
    but less contact zone. Just think of the pendulum of a clock: If you want
    to speed up the clock, just shorten the pendulum and you’ll get higher
    frequency with the same effort.?
