Photo Study of Andy Murray's Strokes

Forehand Backswing

Andy Murray is preparing to hit a forehand with an open stance that will contribute great rotational energy to his swing. Note the 90-degree difference between the line of his shoulders and that of his hips. The downward tilt of his racquet face on the backswing is somewhat milder than usual for the Semi-Western grip he's using. It's closer to what you'd expect with an Eastern grip.
