Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

The coach serves wide from the deuce side, and the player hits forehand slice return down the line.

COACHING POINTS

Many players don't practice skills that are necessary to answer backspin shots (heavy topspin) so they don't feel comfortable while dealing with these shots. That is why it is important to learn how to differentiate forehand returns to be able to put the opponent into a difficult situation.

In this drill player works on forehand slice return. Down the line direction is dictated to put the ball into the opponent's backhand because it is more difficult to hit low balls with 2 hands. If there are more players on the court the coach can assign some of them to serve and others to return. Rotation after few shots is advised. Waiting players should watch others (learning) or perform physical activities (improving).
