DESCRIPTION

The player rallies with the coach using forehand cross court. The player hits 2 balls after the bounce and one shot in the air with the swinging volley.

COACHING POINTS

Modern forehand is based on racquet acceleration so players try to take advantage of any easier ball. Players have to learn how to dominate the rally with the forehand by hitting agressivelly after the bounce or in the air. Roger Federer shows how important swinging volley is to win points at the highest level.

In this drill, the player works on consistency while playing offensive forehand after the bounce and in the air. The coach should emphasize to take the ball in the air as high as possible (point of contact) to avoid net mistakes. Proper footwork is a necessity to achieve high percentage of successful shots in the air.
