Can go Tennis Tonic if you want to find kakis.

 

Often, can find those xiao mei mei NTRP 2.5 type, you must hold their arm and waist to teach them how to hit the ball.

The game has changed so much since the '80s, '90s and early 2000's.

 

Now everything is about speed and power from the basline and huge topspin. Hardly anybody hits a classic closed-stance forehand any more, it is now all open and semi-open stances and windshield wiper forehands. Well maybe old men like RadX still swing a classic stroke.

 

Nobody plays serve-and-volley any more.

 

Want to watch good quality "real" tennis, should go youtube and watch those Becker, Chang, Edberg matches, go further back in time, watch those Connors, McEnroe, Borg also can. That time their forehands still using the continental grip, not applicable today.

eh call me old man...lol. Continental grip, pa ka liao...all strokes also can...lol

 

yeah, still classical swings and a single backhand, and Edberg was my fav player!!!!

 

Now of cos, Fed. Sampras along the lines. Nice clean strokes, and uber graceful!

 

Game now like sledgehammer style, but mind you, some of the old serve-volley coming back. The Full western can really break you with injuries if not done properri
