  1. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    I see! I'm not good with the equipment, the racket was gifted to me from my brother so I haven't changed anything. Like, what size of sponge should it be? And what does it mean to have a harder chinese rubber on my forehand, will it generate more spin or speed? Could you perhaps link some...
  2. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    Will do! I have to wait til probably next week, because my training partner canceled tomorrow. But I will try to get a good angle, and only show backhand this time. I feel like the impact would be center, and not in a brushing way, more like a punching way. So it doesn't generate any spin, only...
  3. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    Ah.. As where I'm now, I'm only contacting the center of the rubber which would generate the most spin - but I'm contacting the middle point, and I'm not getting the full-action brush motion - so it becomes flat with a medium speed. I think it's because my timing is off (either to early, or too...
  4. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    I get what you mean, I will try to focus more on blocking since its such a major game changer as well. The issue is, I haven't played for around 6 years - and I only play once in a week, which doesn't give me the practice and dedication it actually needs. (Girlfriend, job, weird hours with...
  5. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    Really really great breakdown. I appreciate the time you took and even capture some footage to show what you mean, which gave me more of a rough idea what to work on! It's a highlight video, which is bad in this perspective but I wanted something to work on tomorrow, I provided some timestamps...
  6. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    I think you're right! Great with those short videos. These will help a lot. Ill watch them while training to get it right. From my POV Most of them goes too long, there's not much power or spin. Thank you for your reply, this will help a lot!

    It's a dude, if that matters. :)
  8. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    Cheers! FH is my weapon, backhand is my.. Yeah. Nothing. Great tips! So the elbow should be stretched out a bit further and higher? The free arm trick might definitely be a game changer. Thanks a lot for your tips!
  9. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    Oh that's a really good catch, you're 100% right. I do not use my other arm, which should be in front of the ball. Damn, might change a lot for me - will certainly have this is mind when playing on Saturday. Do you care to explain the narrow part? I don't fully understand it. Thanks for your...
  10. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    Most certainly, at least it's too fast on my backhand side which I've noticed. On my forehand I feel like I have control. It was gifted to me, and it's a really lucrative racket and has a nice feel to it - but as with everything, you need to learn to play with it as well. I haven't played with...
  11. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    Interesting take! I agree, I'll look up some more videos about backhand and elbow placements. I won't join the darkside though, I really want to get a decent backhand. Haha :D Thanks for your input!
  12. Horrible backhand, stiff wrist.

    Hi! I have an incredible bad backhand, I get zero spin and I have zero control. This makes me extremely vulnerable when I play matches, since my opponents finds out about my weakness very quick and only play down my backhand. I'm trying to practice the backhand, but I feel like it's stiff...
