One Handed Backhand Technique Add Video

I want to talk about the one handed backhand today. A very difficult shot compared to the 2-handers. Take some notes on Stan Wawrinkas backhand.

First off, the first thing you see is Stan switch grips. Notice how he puts his index knuckle up on top of the racquet.

Second, notice a very slow and smooth take back which lead to a good drop of the racquet head below the ball.

Next, and starting the most important part of the swing he gets into his flashlight position. From here the arm will stay STRAIT the entire length of the swing. Just before contact point he begins to flick his wrist over the top of the ball to generate topspin. Also take note that he contacts the ball out in front of his body.

Last, he follows through with the hand above the shoulder and lets his wrist flick to finish the stroke.
