    Good vids, I like the breakdown of her explaining different parts with the smash. I'm not much of a smasher but I'd like to give my overall motion a good review.

    I loved these videos and all of her videos. She is a great teacher and uses funny metaphors such as "kill the spiders", "wear the sumo-suit" and my favourite "let the puppy loose" :D

    I do wish she actually hit in some of those videos but overall she provides some good reminders to bring to the court.

    she has made some very good coaching videos. as a player though, watched her play many times, her strokes tend to be on the stiff side. her game was based primarily on sheer fitness and strong arm rather than finesse and fluid mechanics. as a coach, her understanding and explanations of stroke mechanics have lots of good feedbacks
