On my serves, I've learned not to muscle the ball, but instead have a nice fluid motion and direct the racquet where it is supposed to go and my serves are much more effective and my arm pain down to a minimum; plus the weight of the racquet supplies ample power, so I don't have to overexert myself. I can generally do the same for my one handed backhand. However, on my forehand, I feel that I may be arming the ball too much, even though I consciously try not to. Lately I've been using a double-bend semi-western forehand with quite a bit of spin, and it is normally very effective, but I feel like my arm is too tense when swinging. Should I do what I do on the serve and find a way to hit the forehand using the weight of the racquet and moreover guide the ball? Or can I be fluid with a double-bend forehand at all? All advice welcome!
