Great question as always. Much of this really comes back to age and stage along with teaching/coaching. As an example, I had many young students over the course of 15 years who gravitated towards larger swings early on. Over time, and through teaching I was able to get them to use shorter swings. Now more than ever, the trend towards smaller swings has increased substantially, even in the younger age groups. I attribute that to greater knowledge courtesy of the web. I was at a large junior event last week and swings in those age groups have shortened up considerably.
Men and women are built differently. As an example, Madison Keys hits one of the hardest balls on the tour, would she achieve the same MPH with an ATP style swing? She might get more spin, but more spin might actually inhibit her ability to get the ball by her opponents. In my experience, women will naturally gravitate towards a more WTA style swing, especially with the path the racket takes to the ball with that style of swing. In her case, that swing style is probably just a better fit or what she's accustomed to.
With that in mind, there's a big shift going on in junior tennis towards the smaller and more compact swing style.
I haven't seen exceptions to these technical checkpoints in terms of laying back the wrist and breaking the plain. Once those things happen you're locked into the larger swing style.
I've been working on the kinetic chain and timing my straight arm forehand and was wondering if you could offer some tips that can help me execute it more cleanly? I'm not sure if I'm opening up my shoulders too early or too much. Also I often times find myself pausing for a brief moment at the bottom of my downswing. Thanks, Alex. https://youtu.be/WNrFHc0gYpo
