Tennis: Response To Deep Balls

Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

  • The player starts on the baseline
  • The coach feeds deep balls to the deuce side
  • The player alternates responding to these balls with half-volley and movement back and hitting regular shot from deep zone

COACHING POINTS

  • In this drill, player works on responding to deep balls from the forehand side
  • Developing different responses, especially at young age, gives players possibilities to have skills that will allow them to adjust tactically to given situation, surface and style of play of the opponent
  • The coach should pay attention to players' footwork and make sure that all the responses go over the net
  • With a half-volley, the player should aim a little bit lower over the net to cut opponent's reaction time but from deeper area on the court, offensive approach can be incorporated with the goal to hit the ball with proper trajectory and excessive spin
