    Thanks for the great advice here, David
    Your comments about the Australian players' (of which I am one) wrist technique took me back to the 1970s when I started playing -- it was drilled into us to use the cocked wrist to generate (wooden) racket-head speed. This is likely a legacy of the great Geoff Hunt's success and his advice to us all -- and, as you have no doubt observed, the Australian game tended to be attritional like his game was, rather than relying on fancy shotmaking and deception (I'm generalising here, of course -- there were exceptions!)

    Awesome! I needed this so much. Especially for the hard hitter and runner - I have a fellow club player whom I simply cannot beat consistently, who is BOTH of these. After watching this series I am much more prepared to take him on!

      Sorry, wrong video. I meant this for David Pearson's video on playing different styles - excellent series!

    Hi, I keep getting the wrist position with Dave Pearson when I'm looking for Paul Coll's solo ghosting session. Please can I have the correct link?

    I really appreciate the slowed down videos of the Egyptian players, especially Ramy. His wrist is always is the right position, no wonder his shots are so consistently deadly. This is such an important topic. Thanks, D.P.

    Sorry all. Tech issues!

    Notice the 'leading edge' and the angle it forms with the forearm. 'Proper' seems to be in the range of zero to 45 degrees. Less than zero is undesirable, 46 to 90 as well (too cocked.) Thoughts?! Anyone?!...anyone?!...D.P.?

      Absolutely spot on don't have your wrist too cocked or too flat, hope this helps, the angles you are talking about make sense. DP

    not sure I understand the difference between "breaking" the wrist (which I'm hearing is frowned upon) and "flicking" the wrist to add deception🤔... any thoughts...

      Try not to flick the wrist, it is more of a slapping action with a rotation of the forearm through the follow through to keep the power through the shot which also creates deception, hope this helps, all the best DP
