A great video showing some of the common threads of the one handed backhand in the preparation phase.
Things to note:
1 - Do not take the racket back with the hand..make the take back with the shoulder turn
2- Note the angle of the racket to the hand- they vary slightly, but it must be that your racket head must be above your hand.
3 - Arm bent on the take back
4 - Elbow of the non racket arm high.
5 - Left foot makes final adjustment step and its an outwards step
6 - Weight transfer in a heel to toe forward movement.
Second video to follow.
