Coaching points

Ball perception is a basic skill that can change a low level player into a successful athlete. Focusing completely on the ball is an ability that has to be practised regularly. In this specific drill, the player has to track the ball all the time which improves focus, ball perception, reaction and rhythm. Top players use this technique to find better rhythm while playing on different surfaces (e.g switching from clay to hard court).
