DESCRIPTION

  • Coach feeds neutral ball to the deuce side.
  • Player hits deep forehand cross-court.
  • Coach feeds easy ball to the ad side.
  • Player moves inside the court and hits offensive backhand cross-court.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill player has to execute 2 different shots. First shot is a regular forehand cross-court from the baseline so player has more time to decide what to do with the ball. Coach should explain to player that this is an opportunity to put pressure on the opponent so depth connected with solid power are 2 factors that this stroke should include. The second ball is a great opportunity to attack because the ball lands short. Here player has less time to react so quick movement forward and ability to accelerate the racquet are necessary factors to win points and put pressure on the opponent. Coach has to make players aware of these opportunities and teach them to react automatically so they don't have to make split-second decisions during the match.
