One of the most common grips for a one-handed backhand is the eastern grip, which we will show you in this video
The key steps are: learning about the grip, and finding the one-handed backhand grip
The tennis racket handle is made of 8 sides, or bevels
With the racket head perpendicular to the ground, the bevels can be numbered 1-8 starting at the top bevel and moving clockwise, for a right-handed player
To find the eastern backhand grip, start in the continental or hammer grip and turn the racket clockwise until the the base of your index knuckle and your heel pad are on bevel 1 " Position your non-dominant hand on the racket's throat as you draw back to take your shot
The non-dominant hand should release the racket during the downswing just before the racket makes contact with the ball
Using the eastern grip for one-handed backhands will take some practice, but will add a lot of spin to your shots, and great versatility to your groundstrokes
Now you know how to use the one-handed backhand grip!
