Well here's my iffy backhand, mostly topsin with a few slices thrown in-- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e426kwOu75s

It's an ok shot when I can time it right,but I have some trouble controlling both vertical trajectory and L/R placement, and it tends to be late against incoming pace. So I end up reverting to slice as a default in matches and using the topspin mainly for passing shots or when I have lots of time to prepare.

Looking at this video I think I probably need more knee bend, more rotation into the shot, and more efficient/consistent footwork and prep. Maybe a higher takeback as well. I felt like the backhands I hit at 2:41 and 2:44 were a a little more like what I should be going for. Any comments welcome...
