- try to finish higher.
- bend at the knees more instead of bending over at the waist, get low for these low balls (they are low).
- how is the depth of these shots? if at service line, where is the 2nd bounce? if not deep beyond the baseline then you need to hit more through the ball rather than just across. You want your topspin to kick forward and send your opponent back rather than just sit up in the middle of the court to be crushed.
- Make contact more in-front and step into the ball rather than trying to hit almost slice. The contact point is further ahead than in your forehand.

Overall, not bad for a practice backhand given that you are a two hander. Let's see how you hit when you're letting it rip...
