Tennis: Consistent Player

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Coach feeds the ball to the forehand side.
  • Player hits an offensive forehand down the line.
  • Coach then feeds a short ball to the ad side.
  • Player steps forward and hits offensive backhand down the line.

COACHING POINTS

  • In this drill player works on an offensive 1-2 combination.
  • Playing against consistent player requires more a offensive approach but the player should be conscious of the risk that comes with aggressive play.
  • The player should always be looking to capitalise on a short ball when the opportunity presents itself.
  • By quickly moving forward and hitting an offensive ball, the opponent has less time to react and prepare a controlled response.
  • Consistent players need time for preparation so when they don’t have it, suddenly they are not as effective.
