Tennis Drill Demonstration
Coach demonstrates proper footwork to hit forehand inside out/in. Players try to imitate this footwork without hitting the ball to make it more natural. Players take big cross over step behind and jump from both legs to achieve stable position before imitating hitting the ball.
Many players don't realise that proper footwork is a necessity to achieving high levels of tennis performance. Roger Federer is a great example of a pro who mastered variety of footwork patterns and that is why he has such a great balance on almost every stroke. Coaches have to emphasise that quick footwork is a primary goal to be able to hide weaker backhand and take advantage of the dangerous forehand.
