High Backhands
by Anonymous

Q: For a two-handed backhand, how do I handle those high-bouncing balls coming to my backhand? Is it possible to take it high (like a high forehand) or do I need to take it on the rise or off the bounce?

A: Ask The Official is for questions regarding the Rules and Regulations of tennis. If you have questions about how to improve your game, you should seek out a qualified teaching professional.
