Last weekend I played against this guy who I think must be at least 5.0 or more who has a great bh slice. For the first time I understood the challenge of having sw grip and dealing with this type of shot. He sliced from ad court to my ad court where my fh is (i'm lefty), and I sent a couple into the net. Then, I overcompensated and my shots just became too high, and his eastern-ish FH killed me again! LOL. His slice was like a speeding bullet. It robbed me of a proper takeback and backswing because I'm used to seeing more or less loopy incoming shots that kick up. His slice shot was like a very flat V. I guess I'll just work on timing those shots, but how do I learn to hit those slices myself? I know how to hit a defensive slice but it has no pace.
