Just so, what is backhand stroke?
In the game of tennis, a backhand is a tennis stroke in which the racket travels across the player’s body, striking the ball with the palm facing towards the chest and the back of hand moving towards the opponent on the follow through. In tennis, a backhand stroke can be one handed or two handed.
Can you hit one hand backhand?
In the last 50 years the backhand has evolved from a predominantly one-handed stroke to a two-handed. However, the last decade has seen a resurgence of the one handed backhand at the top of the game demonstrating that a good one-handed backhand can be as effective or even more effective than a two handed backhand.
Roger uses the standard backhand grip which is basically an eastern backhand grip. He switches it slightly for when he slices the ball. This grip allows Federer to hit his backhand with both power and top spin. As you can see in the top knuckle (the index finger) is practically in line with the frame of the racket.
The most important thing is to be able to keep the ball on the court when you are a beginner, so keeping your backhand swing at a level that you’re able to keep the ball on the court is your No. 1 priority.
