Yes, you have to practice finishing shots. It's so important to be able to finish when given a short ball. Forehand is usually a good bet for put-aways since it is usually the better stroke for most players and it can be way faster than backhand. But keep in mind that you can hit a winner off a short ball without power too, if you place the shot well. Volleys can be used for finishing too.

backhands are especially tough if you have a 2 hander, because you can be restricted more than forehand

My winners are almost always vollyes or unreturned serves (not so many clean aces, though).

prob coz you're a S&V. I used to be but i'm in the middle at the moment because the level of competition is too difficult for my restricted serve volley skills. Mainly forehand down the line approaches and forehand/backhand passing shots, man they're the easiest
