    Thank you for the explications for the different tennis shots. But is there a name for this shot : when the ball goes on your backhand but instead of doing a backhand you hit the ball with a forehand? Like Nadal does a lot.

      Hi Matthew,

      Thanks for the question and for stopping by!

      Yes, absolutely. You’re referring to an inside out forehand, which is super common in tennis, especially when a player has a forehand that is a weapon like Rafa or if the player’s backhand is weaker. I’ve added this to my list because it’s absolutely a specific type of shot in tennis.

      Let me know if you have any other questions.

      All the best,
