Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Coach feeds first ball deep to the forehand side.
  • Player hits deep forehand down the line.
  • Coach feeds second ball short to the backhand side.
  • Player quickly runs around and hits offensive forehand inside in.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill player links a baseline shot with an offensive response. Focus during the first shot should be placed on depth and solid pace to put stress on rival’s backhand. Additionally player has to be ready so that shot down the line creates good opportunity to put player on the run, therefore high quality has to be developed to be able to execute this offensive strategy. Second ball is a short one so it is a ball that most of the time should result in winner. Players who are successful in the mid-court area have great reactions, footwork and offensive mindset so during practising offensive forehand coach has to put emphasis on more than just technique.
