Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Player A hits forehand inside out and forehand inside in. After this pattern both players play the point out.

COACHING POINTS

Watching professional tournaments it is visible that many players try to run around the backhand and hit forehand from the ad side as often as possible. Players perform this strategy because not only they can use their strength (forehand) to dominate the point but they can also avoid more mistakes by playing with own weaker stroke (backhand).

In this drill the player plays the points with the initial pattern based on hitting forehands from the ad side. Running around the backhand gives an opportunity to be more aggressive as also it puts more pressure on the opponent's backhand. Coach has to remind players that good forehands inside out/in are performed only with a great footwork so players have to focus on this aspect. While playing the point out the players should look for opportunities to use forehands from the ad side even when the pressure is on to make this stroke ready for the future competition.
