Tennis: Don't open the court

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

DESCRIPTION

Deuce service box is marked with cones, and the coach feeds balls to the backhand side. The player hits forehand inside in or inside out - they have to avoid the marked zone (deuce service box)!

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, the player works on forehand inside in and inside out. Deuce service box is an area that the player can't hit into. Running around the backhand means that we are closer to the ad sideline so short ball to the opponent's forehand is an easy opportunity for the rival to hit cross-court shot and win the point.

Running around the backhand is a powerful weapon that players can use to dominate the points. On the other side, lack of knowledge about tactical decisions can lead to losing an opportunity and make own chances bigger for failure.
