EBA Team

Technique Tuesday

What is round the head and how much should I turn for overheads?

It’s becoming more common in mens and womens singles to turn a little less for overhead shots on the backhand side.

✅ Why turn less than 90 degress?
Easier to stay in balance ➡️ Faster recovery
Quicker to get in position ➡️ Higher contact point
More stable ➡️ Better shot accuracy

❎ Disadvantages
Less shoulder rotation ➡️ Less power

Sometimes we’re forced to turn less to quickly intercept a shuttle (see Viktor) while other times players choose it so they can stay in balance more (see Chen Long).
