The backhand is fairly harder to execute. Because the player's dominant hand "pulls" into the shot, the backhand usually doesn't have the power of the forehand, and is almost always used to continue the rally. However, there are some notable backhands on the tennis court, such as David Nalbandian's backhand.


Look how just like the forehand, the player had his body positioned parallel to the path of the ball. This gives him more rotational energy to hit the ball harder and more accurately.
