    Default Arby`s smash, Hoyer-Larsen`s clear and Ye`s cut

    Here`s some more pics. First up Arby`s jumping smash - you can see that his legs are more together than Gade`s smash, but then I guess the situation is different. Here he`s pouncing on a weak lift whereas Gade was right at the back of the court.

    Next we have Hoyer-Larsen`s clear, but looking a bit different - I reversed the pic to have him right-handed. As he had ( and no doubt still does have ) the most effortless strokes I thought it would be good for us right-handed players to see his stroke action this way. No offense to any leftys out there - if you want the real pics let me know!!

    And last we have Ye`s reverse cut ( I don`t have any pics of the straight cut of any of these players ). She has really deceptive shots and you can see the racquet movement through the shot and the angle respective to her body etc

    i can't see them but i make a comment on last gade photo jumpsmash.
    I have seen gade jumped higher and racket arm cocked way back before.
    i think the photo of gade is a good regular jump smash but not his ultimate jumpsmash

    Seems to be a bit hit and miss getting the pics to work inside message threads. If you can`t see the above pics they are also here:

    finally i saw your photos.

    gade: more or less one legged jump smash, not too high as he need to recover soon from the back court.

    arbi: his typical trademark jump smash. like steplantis stated, pouncing on a weak backhand return. both feet used to launch body.

    poul larsen: he seem to use wrist more and show very little should and forearm motion. Very deceptive. If u got the wrist power and a single player, it is an obvious skill to have and use.

    ye z ying: can't really make out whether it was a reverse cut. It could be but it is not a cross court type, just a fake smash.

    Good pix. Thanks. Once I figured out that Hoyer-Larsen's sequence had to be read from right to left, it was nice to be able to see his stroke from a right-hand point of view.

    Excuse my lousy web skills - I guess I made a mistake the first time, hope everyone can see the pics now!
