Tennis: Drive and Drop

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

DESCRIPTION

The player stands on the service line, while the coach feeds a higher ball to the ad side. The player hits backhand drive in the air down the line and moves closer to the net. The coach feeds another ball to the ad side, and the player finishes with backhand drop volley down the line.

Backhand drive in the air is an offensive shot so most of the time it should be connected with moving forward and trying to win the point at the net. Ability to pick proper balls to atack with drive in the air is a skill that has to be practiced from the early years.

COACHING POINTS
