Player moves forward and hits an agressive forehand to the deuce side. Player then moves forward to take up a proper position at the net.

Coaching points

In this exercise the player works on an attacking forehand from the middle. The player has to understand that quick preparation based on running and using all body parts while hitting play a major role in the final result of an aggressive stroke.

Coach should also emphasize following the ball and taking proper position at the net in order to build positive attacking habits in readiness for the opponent's return.

Aggressive play:

Being an aggressive player means taking advantage of easier balls and using your own strengths to dominate the point. Weak balls from the middle of the court are opportunities to put a lot of pressure on the opponent or to hit clear winner.
