DESCRIPTION

The player stands on the baseline and the coach stands in front of the player on the same side. The coach feeds the ball off own side to the deuce corner. The player sprints and hits defensive slice down the line.

In this drill the player works on defensive skills with forehand slice. Short distance to the coach forces the player to quickly perform a first running step. With more players on the court coach can put other players on the other side (deuce corner) and make them respond to the forehand slice with offensive backhand cross court (deep or angle).
