DESCRIPTION

  • In this drill, player works on slice skills while using different footwork patterns
  • Player stands on the deuce side

  • Player should feel comfortable in both cases so stopping before the hit as well as sliding before touching the ball are two options that have to be trained

  • Coach should also pay attention to the upper body of the player and control the upper body posture because many players tend to bend down with their upper body especially while responding to lower balls
