Footwork for the 2HBH is something that I could not decide on for a long time. But I have finally found what works for me, and I thought I would run it by the experts here. Although I have an open stance for my forehand, I have been using the closed stance for the 2HBH for a long time. I thought I had modeled this stroke after Agassi's 2HBH, but all I had noticed was that he would make this shot of his right foot (although I guess all pros will hit using the open stance when the occasion calls for it, such as when being pulled wide). My strokes were never very consistent, although I could get good power. I then changed to the open stance - that is, hit the ball as if I were executing a left-handed forehand. I got more consistency, but there wasn't enough power. While puzzling over videos of Agassi and other pros such as Hewitt some months ago, I noticed something - yes, these guys do take a step forward and execute the 2HBH off the right foot, but... they step directly forward, not into the ball! Thus, the left foot covers the ball as it would for an open stance forehand, but this is followed by step forward with the right foot that leaves the stance either open or semi-open. Bingo - this was the secret sauce I lacked! I have been doing this for a while, and it has worked wonders for my 2HBH. Sometimes, especially for very low balls, I still need to close my stance, but with my new discovery, I am able to get decent power, spin, and consistency for the bread and butter cross court and DTL shots. I am amazed at how a simple thing can be so elusive even after reading all the available tips and watching all the videos on tennisone umpteen times!
