    yup, you heard it. After practicing the 1HB so much, I can now play my 1HB consistently in a match while, I seem to have lost my slice. I either frame it at the 3'oclock, make a floater, or slice too short to create unintentional poor dropshots. Help?

    Now, since you've grooved finding your backhand grip, you do it even for you slice. Just remind yourself to go back to your original slice grip.
