    Do you push/pull down with your off hand to quicken/speed up the drop, or just let it happen.

    I seem to be a tad late getting to the ball.

    Late is something you account for, by being just a tad earlier.
    1hbh usually does'nt work with a simple direct swingpath so more time is needed..and a slice when late.

    Lately I have been using the off hand to pull back/down to create more arm tension and load for release, ala Thiem and others of the sort. However I actually do not even need the off hand to get good pop so it would be whatever you are comfortable with.

    Pre loading with the off hand works, as does practicing enough to know and feel the the needed amount of supination.
