I've noticed that when I try to hit topspin backhands down the line, as the ball leaves my racket it looks like it's going to land well inside the line, but then it curves in flight dramatically (like a 'banana' shot) until it drifts well wide by the time it lands. I tend to hit very loopy and quite high over the net as well, so the ball has loads of time to bend in the air, which doesn't help. If you look at the backhand Gasquet hits at 2:40 in the link below; http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=9ddvtzOhjHI#t=160s That's the same curve my backhand down the line follows, but whereas it worked for Gasquet in that instance because he aimed for a shot down the middle but the sidespin hooked it away from his opponent (yet still in the court), it doesn't work for me because I aim it down the line (inside the court), and the sidespin takes it out of the court. How do I reduce or eliminate the sidespin on my topspin backhands down the line? If it matters I use a 1hbh, and a semi-western grip.
