Not a pretty backhand at all. No shoulder turn and no weight transfer. Your getting very little racket head speed through the shot.

Look at the knee bend, and the shoulder rotation of this pro. You can see, he almost has his chin tucked under his shoulder prior to contact. Also notice how he makes contact well out infront. It is very difficult to hit a one-handed backhand once the ball gets behind you.
