COACHING POINTS

  • The player works on their ability to control a half-volley into a deep area of the court.
  • During the match, the opponent can put the ball into a net player’s legs to have a better chance to hit a successful passing shot at the next attempt.
  • Tactically it is a smart option to hit the ball deep to the baseline to have time to move closer to the net and also to put the opponent behind the baseline.
  • Coach should pay attention to the physical and technical details of the player’s stroke and if happy with the consistency, put a tactical target on the court to make the player work to achieve a given number of well-placed shots.
