Federer Forehand Lag
Here is a great view of the forehand lag of Roger. This is a good view to see how the eastern grip has a different angle then the semi-western or western grips. youtu.be/EFY460oquXw
When you say the phrase “easy power,” this forehand is probably the most often used as an example. The ability to catch up to a fast ball is easier with a compact swing like this one. Bigger swings don’t always produce better power. Compact, easy control is preferred.

I like to watch these before I step on the court. It goes in our mind and body before we do it. That’s a great way to get better. Learn from the best. Visualize it. Commit to it. And then go do it. Wash, rinse, and repeat all you want. How can can practicing like this not be the best ever!?
And finally, is this lag thing good for me? Check out this video on lag which I consider to be the best from Feel Tennis Tennis Instruction. youtu.be/vfsS9JAAdMc
