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

DESCRIPTION

  • Player waits for the serve on the ad side.
  • Coach serves wide from the ad side.
  • Player executes deep backhand slice return in cross-court direction.


COACHING POINTS

  • Player works on backhand slice return.
  • A lot of players want to put pressure on the rival right from the beginning by using powerful returns. It is a good option but it is one of the many ways that successful player should train and feel comfortable with.
  • Slice return is a great weapon that can be used on all surfaces to keep the ball low after the bounce and neutralize opponents serve's power and make them work more for winning single points.
  • Coach should remind players to keep low and dynamic position because a lot of players focus just on the racket while trying to control slice return.
