How to avoid backhand attacked by inside out FH
 
A partner's bh is weak so he likes to run around and uses FH to play inside out. Because he has strong FH,I often have to slice back.

What is the good strategy I can use? Please more FH CC and attack his bh?

Hit wide to his forehand, drop shot to his backhand.

Slice up the line.

+1

When you play guys with unbalanced groundstrokes you can't be afraid to hit to their stronger side.

The trick is you make sure they are always hitting their strength on the run (or at least make them cover some court) then pepper the backhand as soon as you have some space.

Some shots with under spin + side spin, some shots just pure under spin.

. . .

You also need BH DTL or running FH wide-angle cross to punch the opponents back.

Serve aces. The only shot that is completely independent of your opponent's skill.

Yeah.

Long term goal. Making bh as good as FH.

There are lot of stuff on how to hit a inside out FH on the web, but nothing on how to disarm and avoid the inside out FH.

slice up the line is good, but don't try to paint the lines. give yourself some space between your target and the line.

the inside out forehand leaves your opponent's forehand side of the court open. you have more margin for error than usual and your opponent has longer distance to cover.

When your opponent is running around the backhand, he is going "all-in" on the forehand. You know his is going to do, and can use this to your advantage - I would hit pretty wide and see how far off the court he will go to run around the backhand. If he is way off the side of the court, you should be able to hit fairly conservatively down the line for a winner (basicly blocking back the ball).

Depth. It is more diffcult for your opponent to run around a deeper ball than a short ball.

Move the ball around more. You'll eventually have to hit to the forehand side sometime to open up the backhand side. Like others have said, make him have to move for that one though and then hit to the backhand corner on your next shot.

If you don't hit with enough pace, your opponent will be given more time to run around his/her shots.

Easy Answer: Hit wide to his forehand.

Even hitting near the middle will reduce his inside out angle, so you have that entire fh half of the court to use, and keeping it low will reduce his ability to be aggressive with the next shot. If your slice has a good skid or hop to the side, it will also reduce his ability to be precise with aggressive attacks.

Ash_Smith 04-03-2013 09:21 AM

Backhand down the line is key - it will reduce the opportunity he has to run around in a number of ways and set you up to explore other options. For me that's the basic building block though to neutralising this strategy and something to focus on with juniors (especially junior girls)

Cheers

It's not independent of your opponent's returning skill.

Besides, if it was that easy to hit the perfect spot on your serve every time, Isner and Raonic would be practically untouchable.

Larrysümmers 04-04-2013 09:56 PM

run him to his fh side and play CC ball then go DTL to his bh side. if hes able to run around that then there will be a huge chunk of court open on his fh side, granted you worked him far enough over.

Develop a killer left-handed forehand.
