I recently switched over to a 1H backhand. Im a 4.5 and I wanted to give this shot an adequate chance to see what I could do with it. After 2 sessions with the ball machine and a couple friendly matches / rallies I started getting the hang of it. My only real issue is that I haven't been able to get much power off it. I know this is pretty much impossible to do without seeing a vid of me but any tips on how to add some power. I think the problem is I emphasize keeping my head down so much that I don't step into the shot enough. I hit it hard enough / place it well enough to play competative 4.5 but sometimes I wan't to rip an easy winner and I just can't hit it as hard as I would like. As for my opinion on the shot I love it. For some reason I can position myself so much better. I thought it would be "easier" than my 2 hander but I was wrong. Its mandatory that you move your feet to get in proper position unlike the 2hander which you can get away with a little more imo.
