I have to bring a little disagreement to the proceedings here. (sorry :Blush: )
I'd say it's what's on the bones, not the actual bones (nice as they are) that is the attraction for me. But I tend to be a little different.
A wonderful video analysis though. Very thorough. It's along the same lines, but more in depth as the stick figure tennis tips I put up. A stick figure, or in this case a skeleton shows a lot more of the inner workings of the stroke.
They've done a much better job of presentation as well as just using the skeleton to show as much about what makes the shot as possible. I used a stick figure to illustrate a small aspect of a shot.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

IDK, if her bones didn't look as good as they do, then she wouldn't look as good on the outside as she does!   ;-()  ..-)    I did think of your motion analyses when I saw these.  I love the slo-mo stuff and the tracing line of the head of the racquet and center of gravity was pretty sweet!

The center of gravity was very interesting, but wasn't that a BIG weird looking racquet?
Maybe it's a racquet's skeleton. But it that's the case then how does a square skeleton become a round racquet? :))

Indeed!  And, good question.  I guess thats where I wonder how good the motion analysis is if it is somewhat not the real thing.............the racquet, the bones????????   I guess my favorite is the real thing in slow motion so you can really see and analze things clearly.   ;-()
