What's wrong with my backhand?

So basically, my backhand is all messed up. I've been hitting it for a year now, only to find out that I've been hitting it wrong all along.

So guys, help me out. Here's the video:

Re: What's wrong with my backhand?

Is this a serious question?

Guy is banned, so I'm not sure if he was a troll or what.

But in any case, fact is the grip is horrendous. I mean one should easily be able to look at any professional with a one-handed backhand and realize how much different their grip is. You start high and end up high, which is totally incorrect. The saying goes start low and end up high.

Look, there are way too many wrong aspects about your backhand. Just look at a pro or get a coach to watch you, it would be much easier that way.

Llodra should give him advice on how to actually hit a backhand
