Tip 5: Using the Right Grip for the One Handed Backhand

Make sure you bring your knuckles round towards the top of the grip when hitting a one handed backhand. This will help you keep a firmer wrist position on contact point. Also try to get your racket head dropping below the ball before you hit as this will help you hit up the back of the ball and create topspin.
