DESCRIPTION

Player A hits forehand cross-court and forehand down the line. After this pattern both players play the point out.

COACHING POINTS

Forehand is the most important stroke in tennis at all levels so players have to spend big amount of time on this aspect while training. Being confident with consistency and placement of the forehand the player can create tactical situations to get advantage on the court.

In this drill the player plays points with a specific pattern at the beginning. By performing first 2 shots with a plan in mind player feels more comfortable and can prepare the point by putting the opponent into difficult positions. Coach should tell the player to hit the first cross-court shot with the intention to open the court and go more easily with the second down the line to have a bigger chance for winning the point.
