The Backhand Open To Extended Plane Swing

The Backhand Open Plane Swing is low and thus there's no need to use The Backhand Open To Extended Plane Swing unless a reflex is required unlike The Forehand Open Plane Swing which is high and needs to use The Forehand Open To Extended Plane Swing.

 

Fully opening the racquet face at a lower level, encourages a very low forward swing which can also reflex forward.

The forward swing encourages the player to lob, but if required the player can play a top spin drop.

Also, when learning the swing, the player learns the importance of the step hit and step recovery.
Furthermore, as the player often stretches to the ball, the step hit and step recover become even more important.

Remember the Backhand Open To Extended Plane Swing is rarely used unless a reflex is required.
