Lately I have had trouble on the takeback of the one hander. I know on the forehand you normally let go of the racket when the ball bouces but on the backhand side, I'm not so sure when to turn, how much to turn, whether to wait a while to bring that racket behind and also when to step into the shot. Also I was wondering if anyone pushes the throat of the racket away in order to later onget a closed racket face lifting to contact and becoming vertical. So : 1. Rhythm of the takeback, when how much? 2. When to step with that front foot (wait with an open stance then close it as the ball approaches?) 3. Pushing the throat? How do you guys keep that racket face closed? How do the pros do it? I I know Gasquet and Henin have extreme grips so that naturally closes the racket face when it's in the slot position but like Federer how does he manage with his eastern grip I appreciate your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
