  • Player performs dynamic footwork.
  • Coach drops the ball randomly.
  • Player starts to the ball and tries to catch it after one bounce.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill player works on reaction and speed. The first 2 steps are crucial for all tennis players because they decide how much time player will have to prepare for the shot. Coach should pay attention to these 2 aspects separately: firstly how quickly player reacts to the ball dropping and also how fast player can get to the ball. If there is any weakness visible, player and coach should spend more time on this specific area.
