DESCRIPTION

Coach serves from Deuce/Ad side. Player returns with forehand cross court. Coach hits the ball back to forehand. Player finishes to the open space.

It is matter of time and repetitions to achieve decent level so players should always try to implement patterns (tactical area) into practice drills.
