I wanted to try to develop a slice today. I ended up only getting one decent slice to clear the net.
My dad finally joked, "You don't look like you're setting up a slice at all! Actually, you look like Sampras setting up a topspin backhand! Why don't you just hit a topspin one?"
I was unconvinced. Did I really look like that? So, I loosened up and said "Sure, feed me a ball."
I drove that ball, singlehanded, right down the line.
I continued for a couple more shots and most went and felt fine.
Can someone try to tell me why I failed so miserably at getting my slices to clear the net, but somehow managed to produce relatively decent topspin singlehanded backhands?
I know I was very loose when I hit the shots.
