Create a Tactical Advantage with Spin

Winning points in tennis doesn’t have to be based on using sheer power. By mixing topspin and backspin backhands in different directions, a player can put a lot of pressure on their rival and force them to return balls that they are able to capitalise on.

The backhand is the stroke where players can alternate hitting with different spins. Players should practice and understand why changing rotation can give them many tactical benefits on all the surfaces.

What’s in the session?

At beginner and intermediate levels, players are likely to have weaker backhand shots. That's why playing tactically has to focus on hitting to an opponent’s weakness, to get more errors or to receive easy balls to finish the point. By understanding the factors that put pressure on the rival, the player is able to dominate the game tactically and not allow opponents to play to their strengths to get advantage.
