老何 says:

Always awesome, Coach!

Naomi Amani says:

This simple tip just made so much sense. Kind of lost my BH which was my
dominant shot before fixing my forehand and I think my wrist is too stiff.
When you play your regular forehand, the wrist is naturally cocked. Thanks
for the tip. ^^

MaxFlare says:

This is a smart man. I never knew misconception of such a detail can
compromise your technique.

MajorAddiction says:

Will keep this in mind, thanks

CoachKyril says:

I suggest using Continental on lower hand (RH for right handers, LH for
lefty), “so you already have the correct grip on that hand” in case you
want to release the other hand switching to a slice shot… and either the
Eastern OR Semi-Western on the upper hand (LH for right handers, RH for
lefty), that’s a personal preference. Try both, to see which one feels
better. At The Tennis Vault, inside the Members Area OR on my DVD, I
explain the possible grips to use, and the “how & why” of them. (CM)

good stuff, I have only recently taken to the two handed backhand after
years of playing – my backhand side has always been the much weaker side of
my game and hoping to change that with developing a two-handed backhand

Kody Andy says:

Great video! I have been trying to use the two handed backhand for 2 years
now and could never figure out what I was doing that made the ball always
go out. This really helped :)

CoachKyril says:

Dear Larry, thanks for your very nice positive feedback my friend, your
words touched me big time, and made me feel once again that my adventure

remembering always that the infinite sky is the limit!! SALUTEnnis!! (Coach

Larry Tran says:

i used to play in highschool competitively but never had love for the sport
since i couldn’t improve. i started at a very young age. I couldnt afford a
coach to help my game and relied on my older bros. Now 9 years later, I
have played everyday for the past 2 months because of you. i know you get
that a lot but i have watched all your videos and you made me love this
sport again. thank you for all you have done for me and you don’t even know

Xanda Xu says:

Thanks. I just tried this and my backhand became stronger

Noahnois says:

Tennis is awesome! I love playing it with my friends, great pointers!

Alejandra Valenzuela says:

This is exactly what i was looking for! I remmebered my old good coach told
me that but since he is not teaching anymore, my new coach couldn’t figure
out that was my mistake on my backhand! Wich used to be great before. This
videoss are exelent!! You are my new coach now since there is nobody good
in my town. Thanks alot from mexico!

Percy Tate says:

This advice significantly increased my 2 handed control. I have also
increased my forehand control. I’m not sure why somebody didn’t explain
this to me before. Thanks – great video

ed devera says:

once again thank you for the great pointers…more power to you coach kyril

David Yagi says:

wrong…I’ll try to fix it…Saudações de Juiz de Fora – MG… David Yagi

I Am Elixir - Alotic says:

both hands, what grips do you suggest?
