I can see that, the same stroke concept has strengths and limitations. Are you the same Richie as you were yesterday? Is Harimoto playing the same backhand in the clip I sent you that he plays? After all it is Harimoto's backhand.
Just pretend you have two backhands now, one for each situation or something like that. As long as you dont compromise your technique and balance unless you intend to end the point, it isn't the end of the world. Pros make similar compromises just at a different level since they have forever to try to fix whatever they care about
Ok, good point. I find it a difficult balancing act, but I guess I'm taking some things too strictly/too rigid in my approach. Glad to have my own self concept questioned, thanks for the thought provoking questions 😂
