I've been playing for three years now (the first year was learning how to do the strokes and the others was just to improve my game) and I seem to have trouble with my backhand drive,backhand topspin against block and backhand topspin against backspin. I think It's due to the way how I do the stroke but whenever I do it I try to keep in mind everything you have said in the online lessons.
Could you please help?!?
Sometimes mastering strokes takes a long time. In three years it is difficult to be able to do all those strokes in a match situation.
Without seeing you play the strokes it is always a little difficult to give advice. If you get a chance to do some training pratice the strokes more. Think about your leg position. Sometimes this is the thing that willl determine your ability to do a stroke especially in a match situation. If you are turned slightly too much to the forehand side it will make backhands difficult. Also, in a match always be open to the fact that the ball can come to your backhand. Often we wish the ball to cme to our stronger side and therefore turn a little too far that way.
Go back and make sure you practice the stroke often in a training situation. Sometimes it just takes a little longer.
