Tennis: Backhand Can Finish The Point

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Player starts on the baseline
  • Coach alternates feeding low and high short balls to the backhand side
  • Player moves forward and hits offensive backhand into side zones from different points of contact


COACHING POINTS

  • In this drill, player works on offensive backhand ability
  • During the match, player will have to react to many short balls that will come with different power and trajectory
  • It means that player has to feel comfortable with using attacking backhand both from below the knees level and around the shoulders' level
  • The change of point of contact requires different body and racket's work so having quality repetitions during the practice will allow player to finish the points with backhand while being under the pressure of score during the match
  • If player attacks really well, coach can feed different balls so player doesn't know the type of the incoming ball and will have to react every time
