Hi Frendy,

It is done by hitting the ball a little later or earlier or just altering the angle of the wrist slightly.

just like the forehand one (that filmed by simon gerada) ?

anyway, can you tell me why the direction can be change if i hit the ball later ? as the swing to the finish position is the same and i think it'll drag the ball to the place where the finish position is...

You will hit the ball in a different position and your bat will be at a different angle when you hit it.
