taking ROS is a very random measure of how good your BH is.The title of this thread is a "little" provocative. I have played in tournaments for years and cant remember when somebody had advantage over me on backhand side. Even the best player in Poland in my category (last year he was in top ten in ITF ranking ) did me no harm on that side. Whenever I played against players who used one handed backhand they were forced to use only slice because their backhands had no chance against mine. Maybe the title of this thread should be " Why is my backhand so good if it is so bad ? ".The best verification of the quality of two handed backhand is return of serve. You can watch a lot of my videos from a real play. You cant find even one case when I returned using slice from backhand side. Of course it happens sometimes but only if the ball is not in the reach of two handed backhand. Even on hard courts , on grass and other fast surfaces I use two handed backhand to return serves. As I read your comments most changes you advise for my backhand would inevitably cause more errors in my game. I tested it million times. Probably most of you dont want to be competetive players. You just want to copy technique of the best professionals even if your technique generate more errors. I dont criticize you. It is your choice why you play tennis. But if you want to win more matches and tournaments you should everyday ask why I am so effective though I am a very weak person and my right wrist is injured. If you tried to play using technique you advise with my injured wrist you would in a short time be forced to go to hospital for surgery. But I usually win. It is only possible because my technique more than compensates for my physical limitations.
and I for example didn't tell you to change your technique.
what I am telling you, is that your technique works for you, but there are certain flaws, due to which I would not preach it to 100% of amateurs. Especially as their age advances.
and this is what you fail to comprehend, that your success might come IN SPITE of flaws in technique. Perhaps your hand-eye coordination let's you go away with it. Perhaps how you feel the ball. Perhaps something else. But one thing I can tell you for sure, an average amateur, with poor hand-eye coordination, poor feeling of the ball, poor footwork will become an error machine if will try to copy your technique.
and please don't misunderstand, I am not advocating against 2 handed shot on both wings.
if you ask me, amateur tennis is much more about precision and consistency than power.
