Emma Raducanu won the US Open in 2021. She’s a British Citizen who was born in Canada. She’s 5’9 and plays a two handed backhand. Her technique and timing is effortless. Note that she has relatively compact swings that allow for efficient power. Her backhand is her best shot and she’s now working on getting her weight transferred better off her forehand wing.
In the video you’ll see her hit open and neutral stance forehands. “Her racquet behind the shoulder preparation is completed before the ball has bounced.” This is critical for launching her weight into the ball. Notice how her load leg releases forward next to or in front of her body after the shot. The way she keeps her racquet moving steady from preparation till finish shows great timing of the ball which is a talent in itself.
Try reviewing these shots and pausing to notice the phases of the swing. 1. Active feet 2. Hop up before the opponents contact 3. Touch Feet and turn, moving to the ball with early shoulder preparation 4. Balanced stance through contact with hip rotation 5. Followthrough with load leg release 6. recover position and repeat sequence again.
