Tennis: Topspin with cone

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

DESCRIPTION

Cone is set near the player on the backhand side. The player imitates backhand stroke, and the player's goal is to lower the racquet's head and hit the cone while shadowing.

COACHING POINTS

Hitting with topspin is a necessity to achieve consistent level of play. It is impossible to develop more advanced skills without an ability to hit comfortably with topspin. Players who hit flat backhands can struggle against decent opponents so coach should teach this skill to everyone.

In this exercise, the player learns how to apply topspin in backhand stroke. By trying to hit the cone, the player can simply execute proper motion of the racquet. The coach should emphasize to lower the racquet head before the hit to add spin to the ball. The coach should feed some balls to see the player's transition from shadowing to more challenging opportunity.
