Here me citizens of TW! I am once again in need of your help Today's problem? Backhand My overall game has drastically improved over the last 5 months, thanks to this site and court time. However, for the past 5 months, I have also been working on something, a 1h-backhand. I started out as a 2h, then switched over to a 1h. After a match I played today in which I lost 4-6, my friend and I rallied. For fun, I decided to see how rusty my 2h backhand was. Surprisingly, not as rusty as I thought. I managed to hit 2 power drives, one dtl and one x-court out of 4 attempts. Other than my left shoulder feeling stretched, I quickly fell into my old 2hb groove. After this, I thought to myself, "if my 2h backhand is already this good even after 5 months, is it worth sticking with a 1h?" Now I'm at the point where I have to make a decision. Here is my overall evaluation of what my 1h-backhand is like: Power No complaints here, in fact when I first started, I had too much power but now sometimes I'm able to control it. Angles Definite problem here. Cross-court is extremely easy....a bit too easy. Now I can't hit a down-the-line without losing my comfort zone Pace Random, sometimes moonballs, sometimes drives, sometimes topspin, sometimes flat. Consistency Disgusting, it's never the same and I always switch to a slice in a middle of a rally. Confidence I'll be honest at this point. I decided to tryout a 1h backhand because it had the superficial appeal. 75% of the time now I switch to a slice in the middle of rally because I'm not confident enough in my 1hb to drive the ball. Comfort Balls that are just handed to me are ok, but when the rally starts to pick up, I can't seem to feel comfortable in hitting my 1hb. Preparation Same as comfort, I know the steps to prepare and I am able to get a consistent form everytime. But, when the pace starts to pick up, my preparation goes downhill. There you have it, my 2.5 1hb as of right now from 5 months of work. From hitting 4 2hb balls, I am once again on the fence of continuing to practice my 1hb, or switch back to my old 2hb. The only problem I had with the 2hb was that my left shoulder was straining due to lack of use.
