Tennis: Mixed-spins rally

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Coach and player rally together in cross-court direction.
  • Coach uses only forehand topspin - player tries to respond using only forehand slice.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, player works on control over forehand slice in match-like conditions. To be able to change rhythm of the point and force mistakes, player has to be able to change spin and respond to topspin with solid underspin. By playing rallies against topspin shots, player learns how to adapt to different spin and apply underspin even when the ball is bouncing higher than hip level. This experience creates self-confidence in player’s mind and makes them ready to use the slice even during the most important moments of the game. The tangible goal of this exercise can be related to repetitions (the longest rally) or to precision (hit the cone).
