I'm a 4.5 player currently struggling to find consistency on my backhand side. Over the past few weeks, I've experimented with a number of different grips and follow-thrus in search of a style that best suits me. I was watching an old video and and came across some jimmy connors highlights and noticed how he hit his backhand. He really turns his shoulder and drives into the ball, largely using his left arm to drive thru the ball. Connors' backhand did not leave a whole lot of room for clearance over the net. I'm wondering for a player like me...would this not be a style to emulate?? Secondly, in the past, I didn't really utilize the left arm like I should've on the backhand shot. Recently, I've started to utilize the left arm, however my left wrist (specifically on the outside part) was starting to get a little sore. I'm wondering, is this an indication of anything? Perhaps using the wrist too much on the shot? Or perhaps tightening up on the grip too much??
