Tennis: One Regular, One Drive

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

DESCRIPTION

The player stands on the baseline, and the coach faces the player. The coach throws balls to the deuce side, and the player alternates forehand after the bounce and forehand in the air.

Ability to play offensive forehands in the air is more and more important in modern tennis. Players have to learn how to position to the ball to hit forcing shots even while being just in front of the baseline

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, the player alternates regular forehand and forehand drive and has to adjust their footwork according to the shot he has to made. This drill is an intense workout where players can improve technical, tactical and physical abilities at the same time. Roger Federer is an example from the top who uses forehand in the air effectively.
