How to Hit a Tennis Backhand

Learn how to hit a tennis backhand from tennis pro Angelina Zdorovytska in this Howcast video.


Hi, my name is Angelina Zdorovytska. Right now we're in the beautiful city of Los Angeles in Beverly Hills. I started playing tennis when I was 7 years old. I was ranked number 1 tennis player in the Ukraine. 350 in the world ranking. I run my own business; it's I train very good players. Also, I train beginners, intermediate players. Tennis is my life and my passion. I'd like to tell you how to position your body and position your feet when you're hitting your back and side. So, it's pretty much the same thing as a full hand side but, again, you need to turn yourself. Bend your knees. Body position, as you can tell, I'm standing sideways to the tennis ball, racquet facing down, bending my knees. My feet are spread out for stability and for the balance. And I'm hitting the ball and following through. And setting again, very position, and as you can see, my knees are bent all the time.
