DESCRIPTION

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

COACHING POINTS

Working on different tactical patterns is an essential tool to develop good tennis players. Players who have a lot of skills are more successful because they can adapt to different rivals and conditions with the same positive results. Looking at the best players like Federer or Nadal it is easy to notice that many times they perform the same pattern over an over again what means that their decisions are automatic.

In this drill the player performs tactical pattern based on 3 forehands before the point begins. By hitting with 3 specific directions player puts the opponent on the run because every ball is hit into different corner. Executing this pattern helps to get confidence with the forehand stroke as also it shows the opportunities to build the point with each next shot connected to the previous one.
