Tennis: Slice On The Rise

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Player stands on the baseline
  • Coach feeds high topspin ball to the backhand side
  • Player hits backhand slice on the rise

COACHING POINTS

  • Players work on hitting backhand slice on the rise
  • While receiving high bouncing ball to the backhand, players have to remember about 3 crucial steps that will allow them to fully control the shot
  • Firstly, the player has to stay wide and low and the weight should be put on front leg to guarantee balance
  • Secondly, the player has to prepare the shot early so full backswing has to be completed before the ball bounces
  • Lastly, the racket has to be accelerated during the swing to control the height of the ball
  • Coach should remind players to be patient and to work on both directions to feel comfortable while hitting both to the forehand and backhand of the rival
