How to Practice pivot of one-handed backhand progressions
Welcome to a tennis lesson from FuzzyYellowBalls, the the best place to learn how to play tennis online. Our free video tennis lessons teach you how to play the game in a new way that combines technical analysis, visual learning, and step-by-step progressions.
The third step of the one-handed backhand progressions is to start in the ready position. To start the motion, you will pivot and turn your shoulders. Once you do this, the tennis racket comes straight back -- there is NO LOOP. Doing this will put you in the racket-back position, which we worked on in the previous video. From here, use the technique we've been working on to hit the tennis ball and follow through.
