Okay, I noticed an "old" post on here from like a week ago and it raised a point for me about a misconception/question that I have about the backhand slice. But let me precede my comments with this statement: I never really had anyone teach me the backhand slice because all of the instructors I have had tend to strictly enforce the topspin tennis game. However, I attempted to teach myself as the author of the previous post did, and I came up with some decent results. Anyway, now for the point of this post: It seems to me that the swingpath for the backhand slice does not differ much from the way a person would throw a frisbee. You start with your arm back and bring it across your body in a sort of dipping motion, but finish with your arm extended and high. Am I correct in assuming that this is the correct motion for a backhand slice? Someone help me out here and describe the correct swing or tell me if I'm doing it the right way.
