Tennis: Forehand against backhand

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Cones are set in the ad corner (backhand corner). The coach feeds random balls and the player hits only forehands into the proper zone.

COACHING POINTS

Definitely more players have stronger forehands than backhands so proper amount of time during practice session should be scheduled to develop forehand stroke as a main weapon to win more points. Being able to hit forehands from the whole court as also to place them consistently into the opponent's backhand is a strategy that not too many rivals will be able to deal with.

In this drill the player works on ability to hit forehands from the whole court. Placing all the shots into ad corner is a strategy, that the player has to develop during training sessions, to make it work automatically during tournaments. The coach can vary feeding speed so the player is constantly challenged. Good option is to set the zone and make player hit it specific number of times to make him aware of the finish line.
