Tennis: Control the direction

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

DESCRIPTION

The player stands on the baseline, and the coach feeds the balls to the ad side. The player alternates backhand slice cross-court and down the line.

COACHING POINTS

Control and placement always come before the power so many exercises based on these factors should be performed to sharp technical skills. The coach should encourage players to hit slow/medium pace balls with main focus on backspin.

In this drill, the player works on backhand slice's placement. Different directions require adjustments in footwork and technique so players are constantly challenged to work on their game.
