    Should your racquet go over your shoulders or below your other arm, like to your side? I remember being taught to go over my shoulder, but sometimes I hit some shots and my follow through ends up under my left arm (like when serving). These shots usually are very good and give my opponent a hard time returning if they aren't winners. However I never do this with my backhand. I was just wondering, does anyone else do this? Is this okay, or should I go back to going above my shoulder?

    Over your opposite shoulder! I used to be whippy and finish under the opposite arm and consistency was a major issue. Once i got it into my head that i should finish above my shoulder, power and consistency increased dramatically. Unless you're a spin doctor with very good timing, over the shoulder will definetely benefit you.
