Default Re: Who the hell on he tour hits a heavy topspin TWO-HANDED backhand?

Bruguera has such a strange backhand. Looks like he's scooping a lot of balls with an open racket face, and also the range of motion looks very short.

Not sure how he could generate heavy topspin with that stroke.

How does the 'reverse c' vs straight back take-back have an effect on topspin production?

When you do a reverse c, you start from high, then go low, then finish high again. The other take-back is simply low to high. So, theoretically, starting high on the take-back offers no advantages and is just an extra step (the first 'high-to-low' motion) to unnecessarily complicate your stroke?
