Low FH


I've been having trouble with this shot lately. Off any lower ball to my FH, I feel like I have to spin it aggressively to keep it in and don't get any court penetration, because I'm brushing up too much. When I try to hit thru it more, it tends to fly. It's been frustrating me recently. Any suggestions?

Hit a bunch of self drop feeds, bouncing the ball no higher than knee high. After a few, you'll get the feel for hitting a hard, slight topspin shot with low net clearance, good depth, and good direction.
In a match, be aware if the opponent slices short and low, you have to hit slightly higher to clear the net.
