How is the APD for hitting one handed backhands? I've always had more success hitting it with wilson rackets, smaller head sized, head light frames. Just curious because the APD is mainly known for spin and power right? But then it seems that you hit a lot of the shots very flat and barely clearing the net. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think to up your level now, the pace is there so bravo. But gotta "spin for the win" as they say. Try to clear the net by a bit higher while still having the ball penetrate just as deep into the court. The spin will add consistency. Don't get me wrong, I love it when I crank one DTL flat for a winner, but unless your roger federer, under game pressure, that flat shot will get dumped into the net without some more spin.

BTW you speak great English too. You Brasilian? Seems like a beautiful place. Cheers.
Hey! For some reason I didn't see your post until now. Sorry about that!

Thank you for the kind words! I'm an American who moved down here in March. My wife is Brazilian and always wanted us to move here, so we finally did.

I can hit a two handed backhand with a lot of spin and power but I'm like you in that I just love the one-handed backhand. I am trying to add more spin but am having a hard time. It's a constant struggle. I've watched a ton of videos on it but seem to hit flat almost every time.

Any advice would be awesome. Thanks!
