Ditto the Ken Rosewall BH.
I've seen a video long time ago where his BH "slice" was described as a "knocker":
1. NOT chopping thru the bottom of the ball, but "knock" or push it forward *firmly*.
2. Racket face almost vertical, finished facing the right instead of facing upward like a regular backspin slice.
3. For returning high bouncing topspin shots, use a side-armed "semi-smash" motion, kinda like a squash/racketball high BH.
Gee... I think this down-the-line shot can ****ed off even Nadal
