Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Coach feeds the ball to the backhand side, with the player just behind the baseline, slightly to the backhand side. 

Player runs out  to the left, around the ball so that they use a forehand instead of a backhand, then recover their position to the starting position and run out for a second and third time. After the third time they go past the middle as though the next shot was coming to their forehand side.

For the first two shots they hit the ball crosscourt and then the last one is down the line.
