I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Well, I see on the WTA shot that they prepare very early. That's one of the things my coach warned me against. He says I was standing with my racket back, waiting for the ball. He says it has to be one continuous motion - so you take the racket back in a loop when the ball bounces and keep the movement going.

Eh? That's all horseshit.

Firstly, the open stance is a relatively new thing, and indeed most of the top players play with an open stance most of the time. The closed stance shots only really appear when rushed.

Same with the preparation - early preparation is a good thing, especially when you're playing at a higher level with people who hit the ball hard and fast. That doesn't mean you're just standing there though.

That's what I thought.

When I say closed stance, I'm being taught a sort of L-shape (with my feet), with my body sort of quarter facing the opponent. So it's semi-open. Federer does it, I've noticed.

If you look at Borg, he was completely open.
