Default Heath waters and one-handed backhand stretch shortening cycle


some great footage to review this wrist and arm movement is right in our pro strokes library. take a look at federer's backhand from the stationary back view frame by frame as well as haas, robredo and others. the wrist and forearm will pronate as one reaches the bottom of the downswing (some pronate sooner than others on the one hander), and then supination occurs as one begins the forward movement towards impact with an extended arm, and finally you will see federer many times as well as others like philoppoussis, kuerten etc. end with their wrist in a slight radial deviated position when hitting heavier topspin.
