Hi, yes that’s right if you don’t pause for split second the swing can lose control. It also helps to get the maximum acceleration into the shot by stopping and then brushing quickly through the shot you get a whipping effect and in turn more speed and spin.
Lastly its much easier to get and effective weight transfer with this slight pause too.
Hope that helps abd anything else let us know!
Hi Tom is the pause on both forehand and backhand topspins also are there any videos on this thanks
