Tennis: Performing under pressure

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Player stands on the baseline.
  • Coach feeds demanding ball to the ad side.
  • Player runs and hits neutral backhand cross-court. Coach feeds drop shot to the deuce side.
  • Player sprints and responds to drop shot with controlled deep forehand down the line.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill player deals with shots under the time pressure. First shot is hit with backhand. Coach can observe player’s footwork, technique and control while being in difficult situation. On the second ball player has to execute controlled shot on the full run so physical preparation and good technical quality are areas that can be vastly improved in this shot. Coach can adjust this drill to meet specific goals: to work on endurance coach can set few several reps in a row or to work on performing under mental pressure coach can make player hit 10 balls in the zone before ending the drill.
