Ultimate Fundamentals:
Two Handed Backhand

John Yandell

Printable Version

In this series we are address the foundational elements in the strokes of the world’s best players. These the core commonalities, and the small number basic positions and motions that underlie the apparent diversity in the modern game. These provide the foundation that all players at all levels can and should develop.

Although many students of tennis think the two-handed backhand is the simplest groundstroke, the reverse may be true. The wide variations in grips, hitting arm structures and stances is as complex or even more complex than the so-called modern forehand.

In this article we drill down through all that confusion and diversity to find the prerequisites every player needs to create a rock solid technical base for a great two-hander for the present and for the future.
