Tip on the Two-Handed Backhand

Is it difficult to find yourself hitting the ball with a straight arm? Are you lacking power?

Check your follow through… is your hitting arm extended as much as it could be or is it bent?

Check out this video of Andy Murray backhand slomos. Look at how much his hitting arm extends into his follow through before his arms finally bend. This is what you want to achieve on your two-handed backhand. This will also ensure that your hitting arm is straight on the forward swing if you think about the extension.

Trust me, once you get this down, you will be surprised by the power you are generating on your backhand!

If this is still unclear, leave me a question and I’ll do my best to clarify. Until next time!
