Backhand - Slow Motion

You might want to practice while watching these clips in slow motion. They are the same clips that you see in real time for the one handed backhand. Slow down and get the feel of the correct stroke. Then move to the real time clips to perfect the feel and the form.

One Handed Backhand High Follow Through

The clip has a great rhythm. Watch the footwork to set up for the strike and the high racket follow through. The low to high path will impact some topspin to the ball.

Two Handed Backhand on Ball Machine

Get into the rhythm of this video that is longer than many of our clips. Think about the feet. See how Alex has a repeated pattern of returning to a split step, a little bounce, and the a quick step out with his left foot pointing to the side of the court.
