Here is a great progression to learning the one hand topspin backhand.

Progression #1 shows players how to "find" the ball by using the back of their hand. No racquet required!

One Hand Backhand Progression #2

Category: Tennis Backhand
The thumb print backhand drill gets the a player in the ideal "90 degree" position. The player should also be aware of "airing out" the arm pit on the finish.

In Progression #3, the player should "find" the ball with the butt cap. As they approach the ball, they will exchange the butt cap with the strings/

One Hand Backhand Progression #4

In Progression #4, I emphasize "tracking" the ball with the strings and keeping the racquet head up as long as possible on the take back.

Two Hand Backhand Progression 2 of 6

In Progression #2, the player puts his left hand behind the strings to get the feel of the "drive" and dominance of the left hand in the two hand backhand.

In Progression #3, the player will drop the left hand down from the strings and slide the index finger through the throat of the racquet.

Two Hand Backhand Progression 4 of 6

In Progression #4, the interlocking grip is used. This grip is used often in golf to prevent the wrist from breaking.....this same effect happens on the two hand backhand.

Dec 07 at 10:57pm
Category: Tennis Backhand
In Progression #5, the player releases the right hand and hits a left handed forehand. Once again the dominance of the left hand is emphasized in this progression.
