In this photo, Tomas Berdych demonstrates preparation for a forehand hit with a semi-open stance and a Semi-Western grip. Berdych's legs are vividly loaded up to deliver power; his front leg is about to push some weight back onto his rear leg, which will then join the front in pushing upward and forward as his upper body uncoils with his swing. Tomas lays his wrist back less than many players, probably because his size and strength give him all the power he can control without any further enhancement.
