I think the first one is more entertaining, the second is more impressive. :up:

I agree with haggisv. The first one is good, but ... The second one proves that he does have an eagle-eye and couldn't have got away with repeating it to get it right on camera. Sure, he had to practise, but six hits with an error is impressive. Maybe he could be employed to detonate mines?

if these are legit and he's really that good, i'd have to say the 1st is more impressive and the 2nd more "flashy". both are obviously incredibly impressive but the 2nd is a single skill (something someone of high level would presumably have) whereas the 1st seems to combine several into one trick. plus, it's not like he has a bucket of balls practicing until he gets it right and then edits out the misses. each try takes a good amount of time. that takes a lot of confidence... regardless, both left me in awe. great work. :clap:

The first trick shot video is the best by far!
He's a lot closer to the target(s) in the second video. And he's NOT EVEN LOOKING at the target in the first video!!
I want to know what other tricks this dude can do. Maybe if he wins this one, he will submit another in a future contest :rock:

The only thing about the first one is that he could have done several takes to get it right ... we only got to see the successful one. I'm not taking anything away from the actual footage, but ...

Both good vids. I'm sure both took some takes before getting right, both take great skill. All cool!

My thoughts exactly... hitting 6 balls in a row is impressive!

I agree completely!

One thing that has to be taken into consideration, however, is the difficulty in SKILL of that first one. Seems like it's implied he was lucky but how many people do you know can bounce the ball on the handle with such control to begin with? I heard from my friend in NY that he can do it easily over 100 times with any racket. He's also taking the shot BLIND from at least 15 feet away AND with Cpen grip (he's clearly a shakehander with that racket)!

Also, no balls on the ground plus an introduction to the trick should tell the viewer this was no fluke, even if it took a few attempts. He's confident enough in his skills to take so much time per try that we can't dismiss it as luck (the same goes for the second one of course). I just feel that so many more skills were incorporated into the first one and it was certainly one of the most original tricks I've ever seen someone pull off (intentionally).

I really hope he wins this thing, regardless of which trick :up:
