As a young lad in the late 70's early 80's I used to hit a forehand slice every now and then, mostly on DTL approach shots to keep the ball low. Coaches used to actually teach that shot. Now that I have returned to tennis in middle life I see that the FH slice is no longer part of today's power game. Just for fun I spent some time with my coach today resurrecting the FH slice and trying to put some power behind it. I found that instead of hitting it just like a slice backhand, I got better results hitting it sorta' like a volley, just much harder. In other words, the racket went from high to low, but did not return high. I used a moderate forward swing with a slightly open face and a conti grip. I would say the difference between the highest point and the lowest point of the swing was about 12 inches, so the racquet path was more forward than vertical. Anyone still teach the FH slice out there? Any suggestions? I think I will start to practice the FH slice DTL for approach shots and CC into the service box corner for extreme angles. It seems somewhat easier to hit that corner with slice than with heavy topspin, which is how I normally go to that angle for passing shots or winners.
