My daughter is 16 and she has not been playing tennis for long. In fact, until a couple of weeks ago, she hadn't played in a year. I noticed something unusual with my daughter's backhand and I don't know whether to try to get her to change. You see, my daughter is right-handed and she chokes up on her one-handed forehand. (This could be because she has been using a heavier racquet although she just started demo-ing a good women's Babolat racquet.) Anyway, when she switches to her backhand, she takes her left hand and places it towards the end of the racquet as compared to her righthand; in other words, she is cross-handed. She is able to hit the ball over the net sometimes but she often lifts the ball up and I think this is going to limit her going forward. I never heard of anyone hitting a backhand cross-handed so I searched on the internet. (I found this site in the process but I didn't see anything here about this particular problem, although someone talked about hitting a two-handed forehand and it was noted that, occasionally, a player with a two-handed forehand may not have time to switch hands so the backhand may end up being cross-handed.)
I don't want to be a pushy parent but I am afraid that this will limit her and it's not too late for her to learn a "normal" backhand. What do you think?
