  • Thank you for the great comprehensive video. I am a single-handed backhand player in Tokyo.
    You showed me how to use my hip to generate power. That is new point to me.
    My question is whether or not I use pronation intentionally in a single-handed backhand. I feel pronation happens naturally. However, when I hot heavy topspin, I should pronation intentionally.
    I would like to know your opinion about the pronation.

    Anyhow, thank you for the great video!! This video helps many single-handed BH player.

    • Thanks, in general if you have a eastern, backhand grip, you will naturally have a tendency to pronate, but this isn’t always true depending on the training habits each player develops. You can use extra pronation in your form to generate more heavy spin. Just be careful that it’s not at the cost of penetration. There’s always that fine line of having both penetration and spin to create the optimal ball for the situation or shot you want to hit.
