Tip:

When Roger Federer hits that superb one-handed backhand, he makes it look so smooth and effortless. We all want a backhand like that. But what are some of the things that make his execution so clean and effective?

Being relaxed is a key point in all stroke execution. A proper grip, which is typically an eastern backhand; a relaxed backswing with appropriate weight transfer from the back foot to the front foot; comfortable distance from the ball; maintaining a good upper body posture with keeping the head still for a clean contact; and a relaxed follow through are some of the basics of a successful backhand.

In this week’s tip we have USPTA Master Professional Hans Romer showing you a drill that will help your players develop and improve their one-handed backhand by emphasizing a good upper body posture and still head throughout the execution.
