Thanks.
I'm not sure if there is a secret. I have actually been working with a local instructor with a focus on changing my backhand specifically. When I began to use more modern grips I also changed my drive backhand grip to be very extreme in order to handle heavy topspin balls, but I am punished by lower balls and excessive pace to that side. That is why I wanted to have a more attacking slice in the bag.

I try to drive through it more with a Rosewall like finish (the finish on my old slice was much different than this). I still tend to hit it too far out in front and I have to concentrate on moving into it with my body in order to correct this. Usually, if I am able to position myself correctly then I am able to hit slices with more penetration than my old chop. I'm sorry that I can't be more helpful.
