Tennis: Take It From Your Legs

Your tennis drills are extremely useful coaching tools.
Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Coach stays at the service line. Coach feeds balls to the backhand side. Player slices the ball with an objective to make it bounce inside the service line.

COACHING POINTS

It is important that players are able to use the slice when they are under pressure. There is a lot of tension when a decent opponent comes to the net and players have to learn how to execute the slice with calm. Too many times players try to hit winners with the first shot which results in many unforced errors. It is important to understand that we can win from unforced errors or we can easily put away when we have more skills than just driving the ball. Hitting the slice into the legs of the opponent (when the ball bounces inside the service box) means that your rival has to hit the ball up which is not an offensive solution for the attacker. Knowing and practicing this situation can open players' eyes for many more tactical possibilities to win the point.
