Introduction Elite Swing
The Elite Swing refers to the technique that a registered PSA player uses.
The following are observations.
There are two basic techniques that the elite player uses. The Elite Open To Closed Plane Swing and the Pathway Swing. The former has always been in use while the latter has been popular for the past fifteen years.
The players use a variety of non-basic swings. However, from a basic swing perspective the majority lead the racquet head on the back swing at different angles.
On occasions, the player's backswing is restricted, and often, the player after opening the racquet face closes it.
