Again, the video looks great with small motion blur. The shot from behind will produce less motion blur because the fastest part of the swing near impact is moving away from the camera.
There is a risk of hitting the camera or, more likely, the tripod. I would never put my camera behind me except when practicing the serve. I put it to the side for forehand or outside the fence, protected from ball impact.
Doesn't the sun ever shine there?
