Writing a French essay on tennis, need some help with terms

Hey guys, I am writing an essay about Monica but I need to know some tennis terms that I can't readily find in a dictionary.

forehand
backhand
shot

That's all for now. I'm sure I'll need some more later.

Re: Writing a French essay on tennis, need some help with terms

forehand: coup droit
backhand: revers
shot: frappe
but if you want to compliment a shot, you say joli coup
