Keeping the off hand on the throat helps build a stronger unit turn for forehands and stabilizes the racket for slices and volleys. On returns of serve, there is no time to slide the off hand down to hit a two handed topspin backhand, so the player will assume the ready position with both hands on the grip. Nadal is the exception; he returns with his off hand on he throat and slides it down to hit a backhand.
