My inability to hit a decent flat forehand showed my truly how much I rely on topspin (semi-western grip). I noticed that a lot of pros such as Davydenko and Djokovic would hit high balls with an extremely flat stroke, often resulting in a winner. I think this would be a wonderful stroke to us when I have a ball at shoulder-level, because I could easily produce a winner. However, my loopy topspin technique will result in the ball going into the net or way long. When I attempt to hit flat, my racquet face is completely perpendicular to the ground, and I make a horizontal stroke (not the usual low-to-high). This would result in the ball going completely horizontal and out, rather than DOWN at a sharp angle. Could someone point me in the right direction on how to hit a flat forehand with a SW grip? Thanks.
