    Great video. It seems that catching the ball with backhand is tougher than
    with forehand. Any tip?

    During a USTA doubles match & I was at the net. My partner was at the
    baseline exchanging deep cross-court shots as I’m looking for opportunity
    to poach. I heard my partner shouted “Out!” just before the ball cross the
    net, where the opponent hit a short, high, butterfly-like floater. Without
    thought, I capture the ball in the air just like your video… Before my
    partner yelled at me! Turned out that it was the soccer match behind the
    windscreen, sounding just like my partner, made the call about the soccer
    game.

    Now I put away the ball even if it was called “Out!”
