Anatomy of a Tennis Power Shot

Power is a core value in tennis.  Players, whether professional or amateur, rely on raw power to manipulate a tiny ball, to not only make it sail almost 80 feet (the average length of a tennis court), but also to place the ball exactly where you want it.  When many people think of this raw power, they may think of the serve, which often clocks in at over 100 miles per hour in the professional game.  Few, if any, may think of the two-handed backhand, which many players use to place the ball exactly where they want it.
