The Key Technical Elements of the One-handed Topspin Backhand

January 6, 2015

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.
