  1. Hi I am a left handed player ,and I use long pips on my backhand could you please tell me if the shots above are appropriate or just basically any tips ,also I am a more defensive player than attack, thanks Tony.

    • Hi Tony, the tips in this video will work for you too. Orsi has long pimples too. Orsi is right handed, so you will need to do the amend the technique for being left handed, i.e. you will need to transfer weight from your right leg to your left leg.
