I still practise the hooking forehand topspin - works fine occasionally. I wonder whether the same is possible with the backhand or is there any technique to make the ball curve more sidewards?
We do have a Premium Ask the Coach video response to this called Curve with Backhand.
Some principles are that you drop your wrist an then hit the ball slightly on the side of the ball to generate the sidespin. You can also hit it from slightly past your left hip to make it easier to get around the side of the ball.
