In today’s lesson, we go over the fundamentals of the one-handed backhand. Not as many players use one hand for the backhand as in years past, but there are still quite a few! As of right now there are three players ranked in the top 10 on the ATP Tour that have a one-handed backhand and when you see them hit this shot it is a thing of beauty. Focusing on the fundamentals that we cover here will set you up for success as you practice this shot and improve your game. Keep in mind that age and strength are very big factors for being able to hit a good one-handed backhand. When you are working on it, try to improve one part at a time. By doing this you can minimize the frustration of trying to improve the entire shot and instead improve parts of the shot in chunks. Once each chunk has gotten better you will find that the shot has gotten better as well!
