Please critique my 2HBH. I switched from 1HBH to 2HBH since Feb this year. Now I got a more consistent and more aggressive return of serve to my backhand. However, I still have difficult to handle those high balls, say kick serve as high as my shoulder. Any advice is appreciated.

Follow-through is not big enough maybe because you stay close to the board. Hit with a partner and record the real strokes.

The stroke looks good to me. Besides, who doesn't have trouble with that type of return?

We all know the solution......Make certain to get your weight moving forward on the stroke all of the time. Anytime you have your weight moving backwards, you are going to hit the ball poorly.
1) You can step in and take it early on the rise.
2) You can lean in and take it on the rise.
3) You can back up and really move in but that just opens up many angles against good opponents.

In the end, it looks and sounds like you just need to find someone who will hit that serve to you over and over again in practice until your confidence reaches your ability. Good luck.
