Hi Felix,

One simple drill is to get someone to topspin the ball one to your forehand and one to the backhand.  You can chop both of these balls moving between the two positions.

You will get some rhythm with your forehand and then you can concentrate on your backhand.

It is important to keep things simple until you master the strokes.  Repetitive training drills are what is required to get the stroke better.

Thanks for the kind words about the site.  One day I might be able to coach you somewhere. 

Perhaps some of our readers who are defenders can help out with some tips for you as well.
