Coaching points

Forward movement is a crucial factor in modern tennis. Players can't let the ball drop because it leaves a lot of time for the opponent to recover and take a proper spot on the court. Additionally, hitting through the ball will force the body to move forward which will result in more power (weight transfer) and the possiblity to come to the net and finish the point in the easier way. Looking at the pro level, it is clearly visible that players' reaction is on a world-class level because they take advantage of any short ball. Coming faster to the ball will create an opportunity to take the ball on the rise and finish the point without using 100 % power.
