Thanks for the video. I"ve been trying to figure it out myself how to generate more pace and bite on it. Next time I'm gonna try the high left elbow and racquet behind head tips!
Very very good instruction. I've been teaching and playing tennis for years and just learned somerhing new. Thank you both.
Coninenal grip. 🙂
How do you avoid jamming your elbow and creating tennis elbow? As compared to starting with a straight arm? Thanks

Am I the only one who continually heard him say “Rocket” and not “racket”?😅😂
Good technique instruction regarding the hitting arm..but I would take exception to the lack of emphasis on the role of the back arm. Your video shows the left arm just being stabilized..laws of physics, along with studies of physiology would instead emphasize the non-hitting arm committed to forcefully reaching back, as the hands seperate, in such a manner as to be parallel to the baseline..correctly done you would feel your shoulder blades "pinch" together…this is a critical component of the slice backhand to keep the front shoulder from flying open which cause the racket to swing across and under the path of the ball…this relates to causing the ball to float
Nice pointer. One question: is there a "compromise" take-back position so you don't tip that you're going to hit a slice (or not hit a slice as the case may be)?
the closed you will be to the net, the harder will be task of placing balls into court, this advise will cause balls go long, my opinion
Excellent pointers guys. I've been playing like this since I was a teen but it's because I grew up on clay courts. LOL. For the more advanced, here's my tip….cup the wrist of your racket hand. You can produce biting slices and even 'curve' the ball. BTW, I'm a retired USPTR Pro since 1979 and now 71 y/o and still thanking God daily that I'm playing.
