I've seen a lot of players leaning to their left when trying to play a forehand from the backhand court. Can you describe the correct footwork position needed to get into this shot and also moving in between forehand and backhand shots?
To play the best forehand stroke you can from the backhand court, you really should make a big movement to get into position. By using your footwork you can get into a more balanced position which means you are more likely to make the shot and you are better prepared to move for the next ball.
If you are rushed sometimes you can lean to make room for your shot but this is not recommended as you'll be off balance.
Take a look at our video response below. Hopefully it will help explain the important points when pivoting to play a forehand.
