Today we are talking about the 2 handed backhand. Many players seem to have issues with the low ball on the 2 handed backhand.
I want to share a tip from one of the best coaches in tennis, Robert Lansdorp.
Lansdorp taught a handful of players who reached number 1 in the world, and most of the players he coached had amazing 2 handed backhands.
Robert Lansdorp was big on making sure players felt a lot of extension on the 2 handed backhand, and this can be achieved by driving through the ball. One way to guarantee maximum drive is to finish with the hands in front without having them go over the shoulder. You must extend toward your target when the hands finish in front of the body.
Finish With The Hands In Front
I like to use the Lansdorp finish with the hands in front on low balls. You can actually get the ball up and down, making it drop into the court with this hands in front style of finish.
You’re only goal is to stop your hands from going over the shoulder and instead finishing with them out in front.
Use the Lansdorp finish when you get a low ball to the 2 handed backhand for maximum extension and drive.
