Elliott Pettit’s Tennis Tips – 4/16/10 Backhanded Success!

Hello Tennis Fans:

Having trouble with accuracy on your backhand side? Instead of trying to control the ball's direction with your hands, use your lead shoulder to control where you want the ball to go.

So, if you're right handed, and you want to hit up the line, during your takeback, be sure to align your right shoulder with the deuce side corner and for crosscourt make sure the right shoulder is pointing into the ad-side corner!

Let me know and post your thoughts.

Thanks and see you for Monday's lesson!
