We often speak about the importance of getting in the first attack or topspin in the rallies to take control and dominate points, this video looks at how to do this on a half long ball coming to the backhand side. We already have a video on how to play this shot on the forehand side which is more commonly used, however being able to pick up shorter balls and topspin them on the backhand side is a valuable skill for any attacking player.
In this video we include:
– Technical points for the half long backhand
– What to avoid
– Demonstrations of when it can be used
– How to contact the ball
