If you find yourself directly in the pathway of an incoming ball (…one that looks like it’s been shot out of a rocket), what do you do? Cry for help? Phone a friend? Not at all .
For starters, you’re going to want to use your backhand to save your butt on this one.
The forehand will not only be ineffective, but…
The forehand is supposed to be your money maker – the shot where you gain the offensive momentum and really make your opponent pay for his mistakes.
But more times than not, (…after you’ve hit it) the ball ends up not doing enough damage to your opponent and whizzes back onto your side of the court for a winner.
Sound familiar? I know, it’s a terrible feeling, isn’t it? Want to get rid of it? Of course. The first step in doing so is by figuring out *WHY* this is happening to you in the first place.
