    Does he bend his elbow at all on the forehand backswing? If not, how big his his backswing? If it is huge, do you think it could hamper him on faster surfaces? Yeah the off hand is strange. Mine was bent too but not that much.
    The serve is interesting. It looks like he goes forward (b/c of last photo) so that is what counts.

    Hmmm…lots of people have unorthodox styles but until they rise in the rankings we don’t see them or subject to microanalysis or see whether it’s a help or a hindrance, the unorthodoxy.

    ‘Off hand?’ Well, you have to do something with that spare hand if you’re not a two handed player on both sides. Might be worth an article. What BJ King, for eg, did with her left arm showed what an incredibly well balanced player she was.
