This video falls under Forehands.
When you hit the tennis ball on the dominant side of your body you are hitting a forehand. For example, if you are right handed and the ball is on the right side of your body you'll be hitting a forehand. Forehands tend to be a player's favorite shot and his or her weapon. If you watch a lot of pro tennis, you've probably noticed that most pros do their damage — hit winners and force errors — with their forehands.
