The Key Technical Elements of the One-handed Topspin Backhand

In every stroke there are a few key technical elements that cannot be ignored. Here are the technical aspects that every solid one-handed topspin backhand shares:

Eastern Backhand Grip

Footwork: Try to step into the shot

Backswing: Use the non-dominant hand, use the torso, keep the hitting arm fairly straight, drop the racquet head below the ball.

Forward swing: swing low to high, swing inside out, separate your hands.

Contact point: Make contact in front of the body keeping your body sideways.

Follow through: Finish sideways with the racquet head high.
