Everyone hits the ball differently and I am not a proponent of force feeding a certain one way of hitting. A lot depends on ability, natural tendencies and desires. But fundamentals must be in tact in order to improve.
Today I am posting the backhand in TeamForman’s Series, “7 Days, 7 Shots” for the everyday player. Breaking down a stroke in 4 progressive moves can make you feel and see what should actually goes into the shot before and after contact. As I always say there are many ways to hit the ball but certain fundamentals i.e. Low to high. In this clip I breakdown a two handed back in 4 consecutive steps because I reckon 8 out of 10 everyday players hit a 2 handed backhand. ( I’ll do a bonus one handed back Video at the end of the series)
