Any tips for a one-handed backhand?
Question:1.I'd like to know how to get more power into the shot.
2.Tips on how to direct the shot better
3.How to hit a lob (difficult for me for some reason)
4.How to make the pain on my right arm STOP
5.How to improve my backhand return of serve
6.How to hit on the rise
2. Make sure your body is turned to where you want to hit the ball.
3. Practice, this involves a lot of touch and the only way to get that is practice. Take the same swing just aim higher and put more sping on it. That should help.
4. Take an advil before you play a match. Ice it afterwards. If you arm is getting sore though you could be using the one handed back hand wrong. Might want to take some time off to let it heal.
5. Don't take a full swing. Just block the ball back in play. The serve will generate most of the power for you, just block it. Also you can slice it.
6. It is very important that you move your feet a lot and get into proper position. Also you must keep your eye on the ball. Keep your eye onto the ball all the way until after you make contact.
3.i dunno how to explain this,put it this way spin the ball while hitting it lob
4.what makes it painful??
5.keeps ur eyes glued to the ball stand steadily be ready to move any second bend ur knees abit and hah!!i do this and it works almost everytime..
2/ Directing the ball requires practice at specifically aiming it to various locations on the court. The arm must be straight and the wrist firm. If the arm shape/wrist position are different with every swing it is going to be difficult to develop the timing necessary to direct the ball better.
Next, the contact point, where ball meets racquet must be consistant and at that point the racquet face needs to be aligned with the target.
3/Skew the right shoulder (assuming a right-handed player) more downard angle enough to get the ball to peak directly over the opposite service line. Peak height about twice the height of a friend standing on the opposite service line with their racquet extended over their head.
4/Tennis elbow is hard to cure. The problem is that little blood circulation reaches the area (epicondil) injured. Thus recovery is extended.
5/Practice. Serves bounce in a different way than a ball hit at you with a ground stroke or volley. Few people ever have a practice partner hit serves at them so that they specifically practice returning.
6/ A well executed tennis stroke can handle all types of spins and bounces without any technical differences.
When practicing and playing, plant yourself nearer the baseline, or at a point where the ball is still on the rise when you must hit. Once you see enough of them to understand the bounce trajectory and become used to the somewhat shorter preparation time, you will be able to do it.
1. more power... Make sure you are relaxed and loose, its hard to create power when your body and arm are super tight!
2. Practice with the ball machine, or have someone feed you the ball and have targets to hit to. do this very often until you can hit your target without even thinking about it! (yes, that will take some time :) )
3. Lobs, It will defintely have to be a topspin lob... or you can slice it over their heads. Just focus on keeping your body foreward, most people try to lean back with their body to get the ball higher, when its really all in their hands...
4. Pain in your arm can most likely be from the wrong mechanics, tell your coach, or a coach about your pains and ask him to observe your backhand and see if he can find any mechanical mistakes.
5. The return is known to be the toughest shot for a one hander...make sure to keep your back swing short. Step back and give your self some more room.
6. That's most likely all timing. The only thing I can say to you is practice practice practice!
I don't know what level you are on, but these should be able to help you no matter what level you are on.
Best of luck,
