http://www.10sworld.com/tennis/ - Many players try to get more power, they are consistent but the longer the point goes the greater the chance of hitting a short ball. Although power and pace is not always the problem with lack of depth, the ability to get more power on the ball without losing consistency will move a player up a level. To get more power on the backhand, review the basic preparation fundamentals. Good footwork to get in proper position is essential, which will allow the hips and shoulders to rotate into contact and allow weight to shift into the ball. Early racket preparation is also key for good timing, so the swing is smooth and the racket can accelerate into contact with a loose arm and shoulder.

Key points

• For more power, early preparation with shoulders and hips
• Good footwork for position
• Loose smooth swing
