  • Interactive Forum March 2020: Karolina Pliskova Backhand

    Karolina Pliskova Backhand

    Is this the perfect so-called WTA two-handed backhand? Ok Karolina does start with the racket in a vertical position. But a great body turn timed to the bounce, a backswing only slightly behind her, and what I especially like great forward extension in the forward swing. In this clip she looks like she likes hitting it! Another data point in the controversy between men's and women's technique. What do you think?

    Beautiful contact with left arm straight, right elbow bent, wonderful extension, nice follow through. Backswing can get a little complicated, doesn't stay on the inside of the body ( a la Djokovic). "Flip" somewhat limited as a result. Racquet loops above her head but a beautiful looking backhand that 99% of the world would envy.

      Beautiful, but takes significant athleticism to correctly sequence for a long match
