How do you direct your shots when hitting a clear, smash, drop or overhead drive ? Hitting straight is easy: the racket moves forward and the racketface is square at impact (or parallel to the back lines). But how do you hit right or left? Let's say you want to hit left. Should the racket go from right to left with the racketface square to its path at impact? Or should the racket just go forward, but the racketface is angled to the left (ie. similar to a cut) ?
