Help my backhand - PLEASE
I feel kinda silly asking this question considering that I was a fair player back in the day (3.0). I recently resumed tennis after about a 15 year layoff - new racquet (how technology has changed) and for some reason I can't get my backhand grooved. It was never a strong shot for me, but at least I could play a decent defensive slice to give myself a chance at a forehand winner. Now when I try to line up a backhand with a regular followthough it goes WAY long (hits the back fence on the fly). I have survived (barely) by more or less just letting it bounce off my racquet head with almost no follow through (like a half-volley). Of course I have no control and even less pace. I need some help to get my backhand back, I've tried all I can think of and am getting very frustrated. Please help.
