Actually, backhand suffers from the same mistake as the forehand. The swing STARTS when the racket is high, while it should be: start low, finish high. When a player has his racket high initially, it's just to setup and prepare to hit the shot. THEN he places the racket low, and STARTS accelerating the racket high. You start the acceleration while high. Critical error. That's why your shot looks shaky and looks like you have little racket control. You're forcing your arm and wrist to swing the racket through a difficult loop.
When their tennis really matters, Babolat Reps use a Wilson.
