Hi there, I have a question concerning the one-handed backhand. I've run a search on this forum, but couldn't find an answer, so here goes. I've been suffering from inconsistency on my backhand for quite a while now, most of it on my drives. I've been thinking about switching to a two-hander, but both my coaches I've had advised me not to. They both said that a little more topspin (like it always is ) is the key to a more consistent forehand, but they both have a different approach to it. Last summer my previous coach said that the topspin should be generated from a more extreme grip with the stroke just being a basic down to up motion and a clean finish slightly above // in front of your head. If the motion was properly done, you should be able to look straight through the strings above and in front of your head. My coach left my local tennis club last winter, so I took lessons at another coach, but according to him, there was more to a backhand topsin stroke. Instead of have a traditional down/up stroke, he wants me to add spin by slightly rotating my forearm on contact. For example: if the ball gets near, the racquet face should be slightly more down and while performing the upwards stroke, one should rotate his forearm slightly so the racquet face brushes the ball even more. Needless to say, while performing this shot, the finish isn't right in front of your head, but slightly towards your right (being a righty) and/or with the racquet face rotated towards the right (ranging from 45-70 degrees). So what should I do? The last method feels good, but won't it result in even more unforced errors? And is it a common way to hit a backhand topspin drive?
