I saw the link to this video from Talk Tennis (Tennis Warehouse forum) and really the first guy's motion is eye opening. I don't think I can do that plus use the other two motions at the same time. However, I really enjoyed watching it.
Thanks for explaining this,

The following observation was made by Michael Hebron who has done exhaustive analysis of research done on the golf swing. I believe that understanding this is a major key to effective play in tennis:
"Rate of rotation may be the secret of all sports. In coordinated, well timed athletic movements, body parts move at different speeds but feel like they move at a steady rate of rotation.

The complete motion is laid out for you in this simple manner. Paul Roetert does a great explanation of this in another vid somewhere here on this site so you know exactly what to focus on during every step. No wondering about what to do next.
Try making sure your stance is correct and then try keeping your weight balanced.
Thank you for this great information. keep em coming! :)
