One of the CTW Academy members asked, “I often have to struggle with a curious problem: when I play the left side of the court I use to hit very easily fast and deep cross-court backhands, but it’s always very hard to me addressing the ball down the line. I suspect this involves my stance and feet position, but I still haven’t found a way to fix it.”
Being able to hit down the line from both sides is a very valuable tool. It enables you to change direction against baseliners and to pass net rushing opponents. However, to really get a feel for and to own this shot, you’ll need to learn the fundamentals of an inside-out swing.
I have a video at the CTW Academy that will help you with this valuable shot.
