Backhand Slice – Knuckles to the Sky
USPTA Sweet Spot featuring USPTA Master Professional Rick Macci. In this video, Macci demonstrates the proper technique and position of the dominant hand when preparing to hit a backhand slice.
Slice shots are often used on approach shots to keep the ball low and force an opponent to hit up, or when a player is in trouble and needs to hit a shot that gives him more time to recover. As a tactic, slice is used to change the pace of a rally during a point. By creating this change, it allows a player to disrupt his opponent’s timing and influence what kind of shot his opponent hits.
