    Have you video'd yourself hitting your backhand as I told you to yet (FAQ sticky), and if not, why not?

    Lol I appreciate you trying to help me. I have changed my backhand I'm doing what you said (I think). I was just hitting with my dad and completley forgot to vid. HOwever, I can go up later today to the courts and vid my backhand, but I would have to toss the ball to myself. Does that work with you....? I mean it will still show my technique/form an all, but I'll be tossing the ball to myself.

    Um, no lol. I have other vids posted so people will know if it's not me. I'm going to beg my sister to come with me and feed me balls. BeHappy's right though, I don't have an excuse to not have a vid up. Should have one up by tonight, and if all goes well then my sister will come and feed me balls. I'll have to prob give her a dollar or two though to make her come haha

    gave her 2 bucks and she came. I just finished burning the video to a DVD. Depending on how fast youtube is today, expect a vid in the next hour or so. Backhand is looking alot better than my old vid, you should see the difference almost immediately.

    mate who cares if you dont have a vid up rofl, "I dont have an excuse" AHA!, just post it up whenever your ready, its not like were sitting on this forum 24/7 waiting for you to post your vid up before we can go to sleep, btw i saw your new vid, to me your backhand just looks extremely awkward, i dont know exactly whats wrong with it as ive always focused on 2 handed backhands, and i know exactly how they should look.
    however, i do know what a one handed backhand should look like, and i can tell when one looks awkward like yours, i guess the best bet to improve is just keep practicing and practicing and heeding everyones advice, ill post a vid up of myself soon, and youll probably criticise me too lol
