    What an amazing video! Very simple concept to understand on how to unlock the hips for more power. Sirs, I'm assuming the same principle applies on 1 hand backhands? You pivot as you hit the shot as opposed to just standing sideways to the net to hit a short backhand?

    Sometimes you better stay in the anchor. Versatility. Different balls and intentions. And if the hip comes around it will come around just like the pivot might stay in the ground or get airborne. Watch the Master, Fed. And you can always rum through the contact also.

    I've always taught my students to let the body flow through the shot, if you're hitting this with thw proper technique, that leg should come through basically automatically.

    great video, learned a lot. I will apply this lesson to my 8 year old son. We live in the Philippines, not much coaching here so lessons like these are great.

    What about a one handed backhand? Hip come around?

    Love that comment about being able to push back into the origonal position by bringing the leg through.Recovery into position between strokes adds an advantage.(still working on it!)

    I'd say that's a way of doing it. Going right left through the shot as you dismissed does also work really well and probably better if you're looking to finish it up at the net. What you lose in rotation from the hip going through you more than make up for in overall momentum as your body weight is travelling through the shot. Also lengthens the strike zone because you're travelling through the shot. The same goes for hopping through it like Roger. For a ball just inside the baseline or on the baseline pivoting on the front foot as demonstrated here works well. Although even then playing it open stance and pushing hard off the outside leg into the court is even better in my experience however is definitely only appropriate for higher level players as it requires a lot more skill and coordination.
