What is the optimum "ready position" for guys that use a 2 hand backhand? I recently found that the left hand on my backhand was not under the grip enough and so I made a change to my grip and my 2 hander improved, but my ready position now feels awkward and I feel slower to react to serves. My coach told me I should have my right hand in my forehand postion (semi-western) and my left hand in a "eastern" position for a backhand. If the serve comes to my forehand, I just let go of my left hand...if it's to my backhand, I twist my right hand counterclockwise to make a full 2 handed backhand grip. Is this the preferred method? Maybe I need to practice it more, but it just feels awkward to me....like my elbows are pointing out to the sides and away from my body. I have been experimenting with these 2 other "styles"... 1) wait in the "full 2handed b/h position" and if it's a forehand, just spin the handle and let go of the left hand. 2) wait like the 1HBH players do, with my right had in the f/h grip and the left hand on the throat. If it's to my backhand side, twist the throat and quickly regrip both hands. Should I just keep practicing the "preferred method" or is it personal preference? What do all you 2handers do?
