Great lesson Peter. I thought I was the Master of the Slice Backhand. Yours is pretty darn good. You don’t see too many solid slice backhands anymore. I think, however, that the shot is definitely making a comeback. Thanks for reminding everyone what an important shot it still is and how players can use it to better their games. Keep up the great work Peter.

If you’ll check the freeze frames, the difference between yer “slice” swing thought and yer “power through” swing thought, is that the “power through” gets the racket face to essentially vertical at contact. https://www.flickr.com/photos/mentalblock/16734448695/in/set-72157650080414049 from https://www.flickr.com/photos/mentalblock/sets/72157650080414049/

Excellent progression Peter. Thinking of the slice as a “longer backhand volley” is really helpful for keeping power in the shot – never seen this tip before – well done!
