Slice Backhand – Opposite arm
The video features USPTA Master Professional Rick Macci, explaining the role of the opposite arm when hitting a one-handed slice backhand.
How many times have you seen your players hitting a one-handed slice backhand without properly using their nondominant arm? Do they use the nondominant arm in the racquet take-back? Do the arms separate as the forward swing begins? Or maybe your students move the nondominant arm toward the ball instead of pushing it back as contact is made? Do they open up their shoulders too quickly instead of remaining sideways longer?
Teach your players how to benefit from using the nondominant arm correctly when hitting a one-handed slice backhand. Check out this week’s tip, which discusses the role of the nondominant arm when hitting a one-handed slice backhand. Learn why it is important for balance and how it can help players execute a successful slice.
