    Thanks for your great tips Edgar! I have a big question for you. What is your opinion on how straight the arm should be on the forehand topspin? There of course is a variety with the pro players, and I have noticed greater power but harder to master with a straigh(er) arm. I think there is less strain on the elbow with a straighter arm as well.
