  • Welcome to the first part of the Roger Federer Forehand video analysis series. Now in this

  • series, I want to take a close look at what makes Roger's forehand so great and also talk

  • about some of the concepts that you can apply to your own forehand.

  • With his forehand, Roger can do just about anything he wants from anywhere on the court.

  • He can hit the ball with heavy topspin, he can hit the ball flat, he can create short

  • cross-court angles, and he can also block the ball if really fast balls are coming into

  • his forehand. Now this is in large part due to his great technique and it all starts with

  • Roger's forehand grip. Here you can see an image of Roger with his

  • forehand grip. This is taken just after a forehand shot where he's still has his forehand

  • grip in hand and hasn't changed the grip at all. Now Roger has a very conservative grip

  • with his index knuckle on bevel number 3 which often called an Eastern Forehand grip. Let's

  • take a look at a close-up here of Roger's forehand grip. The circle that you see here

  • is Roger's index knuckle and as we can see, it is positioned along the side of the racket

  • on bevel number 3. Here you see an image from my Tennis Grips

  • video where I showed the Eastern Forehand grip. Now on the right side, you can see the

  • index knuckle and the heel pad as reference points and bevel number 3 is on the outside

  • of the racket as you can see. If you haven't seen my Tennis Grips video, I highly recommend

  • you go ahead and watch that one. You can find it on the Youtube Channel.

  • The Eastern Forehand grip that Roger uses has a lot of advantages. It allows you to

  • effectively deal with low balls as well as high balls. You can hit flat shots and you

  • can also hit with heavy topspin. One other big advantage is the fact that from this grip,

  • the switch to your backhand grip goes a lot quicker because you have a shorter distance

  • to move your hand and this is a big advantage when you're under time pressure. Two common

  • examples where this comes into play are the return of serve and when you're dealing with

  • really fast balls especially on fast surfaces where you have to make quick switches from

  • forehand to backhand and the other way around. Now that we know about Roger's forehand grip,

  • let's take a look at the beginning of the swing which is the unit turn.

  • Here we saw Roger with his feet in the air just before coming back to the ground for

  • a split step. And here you can see the split step. Now this is the important part. From

  • here, Roger's going to start with the unit turn. Let's take a look at that in super slow

  • motion. As you can see, Roger initiates the backswing by turning his entire body as a

  • unit. He's turning shoulders and the hips until he gets into this fully coiled position.

  • Let's take a look at that a few more times so that you get a really good visual idea

  • of what the unit turn should look like. As we can see, Roger's really just turning the

  • body and his arms are doing almost nothing and that's a crucial aspect. Most players

  • make the mistake of initiating the backswing with the arm and not using the body enough.

  • One aspect that really helps with the unit turn is to keep the left hand on the throat

  • of the racket while you're turning. Let's take a closer look at that. As you can see,

  • Roger keeps his left hand on the throat of the racket all the way until right here. From

  • this position, he lets go of the racket with the left hand but continues to straighten

  • out that left arm and gets it all the way parallel to the baseline which you can see

  • right here. This is another crucial position and getting that arm parallel to the baseline

  • really assures that you properly turn your body. From here, Roger's going to let the

  • racket drop and start his forward swing which we'll talk about in the next video.

  • Okay, so much for Part 1 of this Roger Federer Forehand Video Analysis series. We talked

  • about Roger's conservative grip and the advantages that it brings with it. We also talked about

  • the unit turn and the importance of keeping your left hand on the throat of the racket

  • while you're turning as well as straightening out that left arm, and getting that parallel

  • to the baseline to ensure that you get a full upper body turn.
