I grew up playing on the amazing grasscourts in Albury, Australia as a junior. That’s a pic below. 👇
To succeed on these courts you need a decent serve, solid volleys, a penetrating forehand, and a wicked backhand slice. A topspin backhand really was not required, therefore coming over my backhand has always been one of the weaker areas of my game.
I recently purchased a ball machine to help with a small number of lessons I still do in Austin and…. shhh don’t tell anyone… for me to groove my shots and feel good about striking the ball again. 😁
I got out on the ball machine and hit some backhands last week. Below is a two-minute clip going cross court and down the line. What do you like about my backhand, and what would you recommend I focus on to improve? Love to hear from you – email [email protected].
