For the backswing only, if you jab at the ball with no follow through your shots will lack pace and depth. A good way to determine how far back to take the backswing is (open stance) to hold the racquet by your side and from there swing like it is any other shot. Doing this lets me rip service returns against big servers when most people would just block them. This is also why we see pros ripping back huge serves.
