go on to YouTube, and type in taufik hidayat, the watch his backhand. Alternetivly, improve your footwork, and play a round the head shot.

There are a few slowmo vids on youtube of taufik hidayat, who has the best and most deadly backhand smash in the world ever. Watch those many many times. You'll need to incorporate a whiplike snap and supination of your wrist/forearm. However, don't bother with this until you can easily clear baseline to baseline with your backhand.
