Well damn he was basically told he wasn't going to win. I don't think her shots are that powerful when you coach is nik. Maybe he's a little nervous.

@Dad's Freetime Classic Gaming her shots arent to powerful, but she places the ball well. You have to also remember that they were playing on clay.
William Martin
@Dad's Freetime Classic Gaming power is not the key, consistency and placement are. he did make some goofy shot choices though; like running around a backhand and trying a down the line forehand slice from an open stance.

Glad you arranged this to show to the high (ish) level amateur male players how big of a gap there is between ex high level D1 athletes like Emma and themselves. She has tens of thousands of more hours of practice / matches in her career compared to Shamir. Also, hats off the him for checking his ego, fighting hard and taking the L like a champ. That mentality will allow him to grow his game.

You're really a joker if you consider Shamir a high(ish) level amateur. Those are tough 5.0s and they can beat female pros
I agree with Nick's classification of levels, to me advanced amateur is 4.5, some 4.0, which Shamir is somewhere there in the normal distribution curve (right now closer to 4.0 than 4.5 definitely). Still amateur there's the advanced competitive players and I think 5.0 are there. To me the difference between 4.5 and 5.0 is huge ,(I'm an around 4.5 player and I just don't see myself getting to 5.0 unless I really really really got into it). I liked it too that Emma got him bad. Would it be the same with a 5.0? It'd be fun to watch!

Fantastic playing by Ema. Tremendous consistency! That's largely mental - shot selection, patience, discipline, focus. Very impressive and a lot of fun to watch. Also, well played by Shamir. Sure, he lost every game, but ha gave a good challenge and made Ema play. Games like this are won at the margins.

The stagnant movement really hindered his game and the lack of confidence made the ball go out as there was nearly zero effort in any stroke Shamir tried to perform - Hope there's a rematch where Nick can emphasize the importance of self confidence. If I'm playing poorly or too "safe" I usually tell myself its time to f*ck shit up and hit every ball with power and confidence. Great content again Nick, take care!
AlohaDiana 3 mesi fa
Good point. The result was 8-0 anyways, even after he resorted to safe shots and slicing all the time. He should've try to hit with confidence and even if he lost, he might've been able to find his game/feel his shots midway into the match.

Very nice video and a great example of issue that need to be addressed in future sessions with Nick. Great job Ema, Nick and Shamir. Keep up the good work👌

I lost a set 6-1 the other day to very fast and very experienced player who could cover the court unbelievably well. I definitely could relate to Shamir in this match. I use these types of opponents as opportunities to learn and improve.

It was a joy to watch Ema's complete game. Nick: give a player who performs as well as Ema does an opportunity to provide her opponent one after-match tip as well, based on what she saw. Hearing input from your opponent feels more real than from an observer, and translates to a learning opportunity much better. Shamir has a nice serve technique, but I'm not seeing it translate into a high-level serve on the court as a result. The motion needs to be more free and quick and full. Need to work that out, to let it flow better to get better pace and action on his serve.

Lovely serve technique on Shamir. My observations were that he didn't lean into the ball as discussed in the pre-match coaching, using the body to take on some of the rally balls on neutral points. I can definitely relate to that, matches are just a different animal and the natural tentative play in stress situations does this to me all the time. Ema handled the slice well but again shame Shamir wasn't feeling his flat/topspin backhand. Both moved great I thought, well played.

I think Shamir played great I can see a ton of improvement from other videos of his point play. Returning well, making better decisions. Started off serving pretty well. Smart to slice a lot because BH wasn’t working at all. Solid performance. Ema played amazing
rsmith02 4 mesi fa
Good play and I can relate to Shamir. The intensity in footwork is a huge difference between the two and I would have loved to see Shamir move more, split step consistently and put himself into position to hit his best shots. The slicing seemed in part as he was out of position.

Great match! I have the impression Shamir used too much the backhand slice. Maybe he was under too much pressure and lost confidence on his one handed backhand. In the end, he played better when he played aggressively. Keep up the good work!

Looking from my point of view in my tennis journey, it's interesting that this video is being released now. I decided to move from the stylish 1 handed backhand to a 2 handed because I was slicing a lot and not being able to trust myself when playing higher ranked players. Even though I kept trying to keep my intensity up I just didn't have enough court time and enough lessons+practice time to develop a 1 handed that could become a weapon. From the moment I realized that I started switching to a 2 handed and I felt that the amount of time that I have for my whole preparation until I hit the ball is a lot higher than before, it also helped me in some emergency shots and have more control of where to place the ball. Interesting to see that Shamir had the same problem that I had.

It was fine for Shamir in the first game; rallies were pretty neutral but went completely downhill after that easy mistake (bad bounce or not). Lost confidence and played completely safe and defensive not going for his shots. I would probably lost 8-0 as well but I would force my shots a bit more. Nothing much to lose anyway

Long waited match. Shamir did with great effort but still no chance if he continues with defensive play especially with slice against such a strong opponent. Both are not moving well on clay, I rarely see any decent sliding from both side. Great jobs Nik, thanks for this video, we are looking forward to seeing Anna’s match 😊😊

This was a tough match up for Shamir. When your opponent is at a higher skill level even your good shots are probably just an average shot that they see all the time. Ema is a lean mean ground stroke machine who can pound from the ground and run around. If you can get practice sets like this they help you understand what skills you need to work on.

Shamir's 1st serve sliced into the body, was the only shot Ema could not deal with, he should have used it more often, since its easy to produce even for Shamir

The result is what I expected and predicted. Shamir has potential and I like his game but a bit to intimidated here maybe and insecure especially on the backhand. A higher serve percentage could've maybe gotten him a game but overall the difference in level is just to high. Ema so solid. Times her shots so well. That's why it was also clear from the start that she would come out the winner against Macy. Very fun to watch! And Shamir is a great guy. Keep it up. Definitely much room still for improvement 💪🏼

A very good, let alone a high level, player forces you to play above the level you are capable of. That makes unforced errors skyrocking. Shamir's serve indicates he is not a bad player. He was simply facing someone who is way better. I guarantee he looks like a different person versus a 4.0 player.
samurai7411 2 mesi fa
Nick said everything I was going to about the backhand already. Love seeing Shamir play, but the forehand... 1. Not getting coiled enough to really rotate through it. 2. That over the head followthrough is robbing him of a lot of pace and penetration. Instead of the swing extending forward (when possible) it looks like he is pulling off the ball a bit and his swing goes up and over sideways. Love to hear you let me know if that analysis is right or if I'm talking garbage! Thanks for the lessons Nick!
Munditimum 4 mesi fa
Emma is just amazing. No need to say anything about her. Shamir is a delightful soul, super nice and gentle guy that just enjoys everything. Sadly, I got the feeling that his lack of intensity (maybe being careful about his foot injury?) is getting in his way of confidence with everything, including his BHs and not so spinny FHs. I have never played on green clay courts, but it looks like a challenge on its own, being super dry and not so easy to glide/slide on. Amazing content Nic as usual. Cheers and have a great weekend. M
jbf-ev10 4 mesi fa
Nick told Shamir to use more body in his pre-game instructions, but mostly I saw poor footwork and flailing away, all arm. This was partly because of all the slices, which weren't really working well, and partly because of poor torso rotation on non-slices. There were a couple of points where Shamir had obvious torso rotation, and those were points I think he managed to control and win, but they were few and far between. Too many arm-only floaters that Ema devoured like she hadn't eaten for a week. Ema uses the full kinetic chain and that's why she could hit it way harder and with more topspin than Shamir, in spite of being about half his weight. Basically it was no contest, and I think the main thing Shamir should have learned was to drop using the floating slices - they have no future against good players - and listen to his coach in warmups! MORE BODY! He basically completely ceded offense to Ema. Again, a strategy with no future against good players. Kill or be killed!
Adeyinka Adegbite
He has a collapsed arch in his foot and can't load up to play his backhand, hence the floating slices

From Ema I saw confidence in her strokes. She accelerated through her strokes. From Shamir I saw nerve and a tentative stroke. He didn't push the ball, but he also didn't accelerate as he hit, and it showed. At no point was Ema feeling any danger.

@Marco Monti haha totally disagree there is such an enormous difference between the pro level and amateur level. Your watching strokes and power and fitness level. It is way more about decision making, reading the game, recognising where the momentum is. How to pace a match etc. Yes for the untrained eye looking at Ema play Winston on a practice court could make you think the level isn't that different. Playing a match is something else completely.

I'd seriously consider moving Shamir's backhand grip more toward semi-western. It looks even weaker than eastern right now. Most players I've seen with that grip can only shovel the ball with very little racket head speed because their wrist is in a very weak position when they try to swing upward with the racket face slightly tilted down. Then when they want spin they just chop strait up and hit it super thin. I think that's why he seems unconfident on that side. His mind and wrist simply won't allow him to swing hard because it's protecting him from injury.

It appears to me that he is barely hitting the his ground strokes and she is hitting every shot as hard as she can and he is not having any trouble with her power at all. Good thing this is clay court because I don’t think that match would be this close if it wasn’t on clay court my friend. This was extremely fun to watch and great video my friend.

As nick says : come on Shamir!! Good effort
Simple Balance Astrology
great video --- as expected but i think Shamir could have done better --- the foot work and reaction was a bit sluggish which affected his main weapon , his forehand. He was slicing with his BH a lot due to lack of footwork which didn't allow him to hit an actual BH.

Shamir need to consider to switch to 2H backhand. Even the 2HB may still floater and inconsistent like your 1HB, but at least it will give you a bit time to relax your right hand that help preserve your strength for a long game
Andy Class

Props to Shamir ! From my perspective it's not his technique. Ema seems much more agile and energetic. With every hit you get the impression she want to put pressure on. Shamir, on the other hand, was often late, or just "hesitantly defensive". You couldn't really see that he had a goal (apart from getting the ball across) - for me it's mainly a physical problem, i.e. strength, endurance (see also leg work Ema vs Shamir). I would tackle that first if I were Shamir, in my opinion that's where the greatest leverage lies - and with physique / strength comes the self-confidence for a top spin backhand ;-)

Hey Nick, I have a question. I use the same string setup as you and have 3 rackets and I break a string every week or so. Is it bad to string my racket immediately and then let it sit for a week to two or wait until I have only one racket strung and then string it. My question is actually whether tension loss is common with the Kirshcbaum super smash orange or if it doesn't matter. Keep up the good work, just watched your podcast with tennisnerd, really enjoyed it! Maybe you should consider making a podcast too.

Ema was just too sharp and in better tennis shape. She seemed to be competing more against herself on this one. Good try Shamir. Still fun to watch and to listen to the coaching.
Hero Of Comments
The problem with the female player is after hitting from the baseline you have to move back so that the next ball you can move forward, put yr weight forward and hit it. But, she stays in the same length, so every ball just before hitting she has to move backwards instead of move forward and hit the ball. The problem with the man is, seems he practices a lot of rallies, but not playing points or games. His mindset is to hit towards the opponent because of his rallies training, so very rarely he hits away from the opponent😮

Goes to show that you need to weaponize your backhand so that you can use it to take control of the point. Defensive slice backhand, when overused, is a huge weakness and causes you to lose control of the point often.

Surprising lack of intensity and movement from Sammy. Seems to stand around alot which is not going to work at any level of the game. Looked tight and tentative. Ema calmly went about her business and dismantled Shamir. No answer for Ema's big serve and Shamir lacks the weapons to put her on the defensive and pressure her game. Outcome not a surprise but good for both of you taking on the challenge.

Might be projecting here but I felt like I could see Shamir at one point prepare for a topspin backhand and then at the last second bail out and hit a slice, which of course went into the net. Definitely a lack of confidence in that shot. I liked the attacking forehand slices though, that was a nice adjustment that got him a few points. Also, who was the potty mouth I wonder...?

I noticed that Shamir's balls were going long most of the time. His slices were floating too much. Is this solely due to technique? I had the impression that maybe his racket was strung too loose... Not a lot of control on his strokes. One other thing... I would have liked too see more intensity from Shamir. But maybe that's just his style of playing, relaxed, I dunno. Other than that, huge props to him

Shamir should have won a few of those games. Actually, the slice backhand is the right shot for him. His topspin bh breaks down too early. He also was being way too nice with Emma’s 35mph second serve.

I think Shamirs game has to be improved a lot… Don’t get me wrong but Emma wasn’t playing extremely powerful but consistent and secure. Shamir could have done way better. He was playing way to defensively. His Slice Forehand was completely garbage. He should focus on playing a clean Forehand & backhand with spin and death. His game would dramatically improve and he actually could win against Emma.

Thought Shamir was 4.5 trying to get to 5.0 a year ago? Now he's back to 4.0?

He couldn’t play for two years bc of a chronic right foot injury. He doesn’t practice as much as he used to. He is still not 100% and has trouble loading the right foot. We talk about it here and many other recent videos 👉 itvid.net/video/video-oLKPPTsV5C0.html
