Expert’s resume

Arnaud's serving technique is good, he's toss the ball high enough and use his legs and body rotation plus the fast wrist motion to generate a lot of power. On the returns he makes a good swing motion with his shoulders and demonstrates a fast reaction. Arnaud's forehans grip is more open but it does not affect the power and spin in any negative way. He uses his legs properly for every shot he makes. On the backhand side he's consistent too, using small adjusting steps before making each shot and rotate his body well. He can imrpove his footwark in general by placing feet better and increasing the overall quickness. Excellent volleys, great control and he can improve further by shortening the swing motion and using his body weight, not only his hands. Overall, Arnauld is a stable baseline player, with excellent feel of the ball, consistent serving, and very nice volleys.
