So, what is the buggy whip down the line winner? It’s actually a really fun shot that will make your opponents scratch their heads in frustration because it delivers a powerful, devastating, and disguised blow.

This shot is best used after hitting the forehand crosscourt or the backhand down the line.  When the ball comes back to the forehand, you can use the buggy whip finish combined with an open stance footwork pattern. Your opponent won’t be able to read the ball coming off your racket cross when you use the buggy whip. It can be a secret weapon for you. Want to learn more on how to hit this devastating shot.

    Usually, the finishing shot is make while not too far behind the baseline and preferably inside the baseline. Are you suggesting for most people who are not Nadal, that this shot can be hit well from behind the baseline? I’m more of a slicer and dicer 4.5 level senior, but would love to develop a shot like this!

      Hi Lynn,

      You should hit this shot low over the net when on or inside the baseline. That’s when you take offensive. But when you are behind the baseline, you have to play it higher over the net with more spin.
