Tennis: Everything to 1 corner

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

DESCRIPTION

Standing in the deuce corner the coach feeds the ball to the player from the opposite end of the court.

The coach should move the player around the court by feeding the ball to different parts of the court, but the player is only allowed to hit forehands to the deuce corner.

COACHING POINTS

In this exercise, the player works on consistency and placement while using forehand from the full court. The player doesn't know where the coach will hit the ball so the environment resembles match conditions.

For intermediate players, coach can hit slower balls to make players succeed often. For more advanced athletes, intensity and volume should be raised to make significant improvements.

Discussion

Spanish players are great examples of combining 2 skills to win tennis matches - footwork and forehand. Carlos Moya in the past and Rafael Nadal nowadays are players who run from one corner to the other and hit only forehands.

Speed, stamina, strength and technique are areas that have to be addressed to achieve level of these great pros.
