To all those who aspire to a quality single-handed backhand, this lesson is worth a watch.
Notice how the stance is closed at the point the ball is struck and how far round the student’s body is to the back fence.
One of the commenters said; “Such a great lesson. Safin’s follow through question is exactly the one I’ve had. I heard a coach somewhere say it stresses the wrist if you ‘stop early,’ but I hit mine that way and have never noticed any problem. I totally get what coach means when he says trust the shot though. When I trust, my wrist stays looser on the finish and I get more topspin”.
