After playing 6 plus years there is still stuff to work on. Never ending variety of shots and techniques to master. For me top spin forehand like those used in tennis has always been a challenge. Lately I have watched two Pro videos on ground strokes and it has finally started to kick in and gives me another style or type of shot that I have so desperately needed. What shot or technique have you been working on that still gives you fits?
Currently trying to get my backhand drive to be reliable!
I turn the paddle in my hand to where my thumb is behind the handle…it adds a to of power and if you can switch back to a continental grip smoothly for the forehand you will find extra drive power on the backhand will up your game. Switching for many people is the hard part and most coaches probably don’t recommend it.
I am working on top spin drops. Backspin drops have always been my staple but i’m really loving the versatility of being able to use top spin and backspin to hit drops with my forehand and my backhand.
I am working on stepping into my backhand and also resetting hard shots.
