Developing your hitting zone...

'Hitting zone' is the distance over which your strings are facing/pointing towards your target during the hitting phase of the stroke (the forward swing pre, on and post contact).  A longer hitting zone increases chances of a consistent contact point (timing) and increases potential for more racket velocity (speed over a given direction).  Use of the non-dominant hand during the one-handed backhand key in this.

See here 10 backhands in a row against the wall aiming for the cross.  Pretty proud of shots 8 and 9!  (This was 'take 1' I promise!)
