my friend and i were curious about his backhand stroke against simon gerada and we call it the "the muscle stroke"because you are like flexing your muscle. 

how can you execute that move

please show me a video

Hi Martin,

Take a look at the lesson we have on the Backhand Topspin Against Block.  This will also show you that Jeff finishes in the same 'muscle' position.  It is a good way of thinking about the finish position for the backhand topspin.

This wouldn't be had an amazing shot. If Simon would have returned it


Alois Rosario

Yes, but I think that the fact that SImon wasn't able to return it shows how good the shot was.

He just got confused....what type of stroke can be used to return it


Alois Rosario

Alois Rosario from PingSkills Posted 7 years ago

Probably a block with a bit of sidespin.  It takes a lot of touch and class to be able to return a ball like that.  You are right though, Simon was surprised by the shot.

Shades of Smythe circa 1995. And yes most of the time his unpredictability was based on having one eye closed. Great post guys.
