Tennis Drill Demonstration
The coach stands at the net (ad side) while the player is on the baseline (ad side), and both rally together. The player uses only backhand stroke. The coach keeps regular rally and hits random high ball to allow the player to hit backhand in the air.
Modern tennis is an offensive game so players can't use backhands only to keep the ball in play. Players like Djokovic or Wawrinka show us that an ability to be offensive, keep the ball deep and rip it down the line are factors that can win the match
In this drill, the coach implements backhand in the air to the regular rally. This skill helps to develop an ability to take proper ball in the air and be more aggressive with the backhand stroke. Technical skills and decision-making process are trained at the same time
