The Double handed backhand (right handed): The double handed backhand is a stroke that is arguably considered to be an improvisation to the single handed version as more power and accuracy can be infused in it with the use of an extra hand from the backswing to the follow-through. Reverse the alignment for left-handed player. This stroke can be played with the help of following steps:
1) After the anticipation is done, quick steps must be taken to the ball as more time is required for this stroke. Pivoting to the ball is the first step after which the player has to firmly grip the racquet with both hands. In this case the left hand just above the right and slightly open the phase of the racquet to enhance the pace of the stroke. At the same time, the right foot should be kept 45 degrees in front of the left foot before meeting the ball.
2) Meeting the ball – The player must make sure about meeting the ball at the centre of the face of the racquet. After the back swing and rotation of the hip, both arms must be working in perfect symphony as the elbows must be straightened with the left wrist dropped which will figure the amount of spin on the stroke. The right knee should be slightly bent with according to the bounce of the ball with less bend for a higher bounce and vice versa.
3) Weight Transition – As soon as the stroke is struck, the weight is shifted from the right foot to the left along with the full completion of the follow-through. The right hand goes through a normal swing as the right hand turns towards a steep bend to complete a full follow-through. The right must be moving towards the back as the left feet gets ready to take the body weight which helps the player to quickly get back to the ready stance and start preparing for the next stroke.
