Can touching with your backhand from forehand side be used as a substitute for forehand touch as I have seen many young players use it. Is it because you can achieve a better angle?

Hi Tam,

This is something that more players are doing now.  A lot is to do with the ability to use the wrist on the backhand and more efficient stroke.

It really is a personal preference as to what you go with.
