Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios hitting (US OPEN 2014)

| Uncategorized | September 17, 2014

Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios hitting, boy that is fun to see! During the qualifying rounds of the US Open 2014 I was able to check the two young talents go at it. See for yourself below, I got a pretty cool video shot of Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios hitting at the Grandstand court.

Anyways, the video was shot on an iPhone 4s, I know…next time I promise will be better footage but its all I could get for now. Its decent enough to watch, its funny to think that phones these days can generate such high quality videos…when years ago video cameras would shoot something like this. Technology, amazing. Okay end rant.

Anyways, as you can see I got pretty close to the court and was able to capture Dimitrov courtside (right behind him). This was a good angle because you can really get a good glimpse of what his strokes look like and his tight footwork. His strokes are very fluid and smooth.  Its no wonder people call him “mini-fed”, and he has definitely made his own name for himself after this year, undoubtedly.

I was very surprised by the “easy-power” that Kyrgios was generating off his serve and forehand. The guy can hit a massive serve, and it is no wonder that he made it so far in Wimbledon this year! I saw him on opening day playing Youzny and he definitely had a ton of fire power. I think as he grows, and gets mentally stronger he definitely has potential to become top 10 and perhaps even grab a few atp titles and slam!

Anyways, hope you enjoyed the footage of Grigor Dimitrov and Nick Kyrgios hitting at the US Open. Let me know your thoughts on the video and let me hear your thoughts on these two young potentials. Do you think these two have the game to win a slam? What do you think?

Marin Cilic hitting with Goran Ivanisevic at US open 2014

| Uncategorized | September 12, 2014

So while I was at the 2014 US Open, I had the chance to see the 2014 US Open Champion, Marin Cilic warm up during qualifying rounds (before the start of the main draw tournament). To say the least watching Marin Cilic hitting with Goran Ivanisevic was awesome, and he looked really sharp (I thought he was going to go far in the tournament). But seriously who could have predicted him taking Federer out in straight sets and winning the final of the grand slam!

Anyways, I saw him in August 2014 warming up before the tournament. Goran looked awesome, and as he ages appears to be in awesome shape. I snapped some cool footage off my iphone (sorry, next year I promise to deliver better quality hitting video in hd!) but still captures some cool hitting between Marin Cilic and Goran Ivanisevic. They were mostly warming up the groundies and doing some drills. Marin Cilic was hitting big heavy balls, with lots of power. He has such clean shots, and it was very awesome to watch. Goran’s volleys still look sharp by the way and its no wonder he won Wimbledon. Well thats enough out of me – check out the footage below.

Part 1 of Marin Cilic hitting with Goran Ivanisevic, below (shorter version 37 seconds) –

Here is part 2 of Marin Cilic hitting with Goran Ivanisevic, below (a bit longer 1 minutes and 30) –

Anyways, that’s all I got for now but check out our channel because we shot a few other pros hitting. Including Dimitrov and Verdasco (wow this guy can hit a big ball). I will be writing up some blogs on these guys and my comments on them over the next few weeks, so watch out for that. Thanks for reading guys and have an awesome weekend!
