Recently I made home-made return board. My forehand strokes are normal. Now I am training my backhand topspin against returnboard. I watched your backhand topspin videos many times. Trying to do the same stroke. When I use my arm more during backhand topspin, my strokes are more stable, the control is good. But I feel pain in my arm. So I feel that my stroke is not correct. When I use more elbow, i.e. when I take power from elbow, strokes are fast and more like smash, but they are not controlled. Arc is more straight. What are your suggestions?
I think one of the keys with all of this is to relax your arm all the way through the stroke. This will allow the stroke to work efficiently.
Even think both relaxing the fingers though the stroke. This will make a difference too how the elbow and whole arm feels.
