1) Take a wide, crouching stance as the ball approaches
and transfer your weight to the right side. For balance, extend the left arm in
line with the left shoulder, and hold the arm high. 2) The stroke begins with
the uncoiling of the hips and shoulders toward the left. The racket arm, though
moving, has not begun to accelerate; it is being "dragged" forward by
the pivoting torso. 3) The racket arm now gathers momentum. 4) The wrist drives
the racket over the top of the ball. 5 & 6) The weight is now transferred
completely and the racket takes off high to the left.
