Post up a video and maybe we can discover the missing link to your hitting a proper BH.
Sorry, thought you understood what I was getting at. I fully understand how to hit a good backhand. Zero of what you've stated I didn't know.
The issue I have is doing it perfect, at match speed, ad nauseum. I could spend the next ten years doing BH work and would get a negligible result.
Even Fed's BH breaks down on him and I am nowhere near as skilled or fit as him. In fact, laziness is probably my simple issue.
