Tennis: Drawing the opponent in: Point play

Your tennis drills are extremely useful coaching tools.
Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Players feed the ball in from hand and rally up and down the middle of the court.

At any time, player 1 can choose to hit a shot that will bring player 2 forward to the net. This shot must be hit inside the service box and can be a short slice or dropshot.

The point is then live from the next ball. Players play first to 7 before switching roles.

COACHING POINTS

Player 2 will be forced to come to the net from the shorter ball or dropshot. It is also likely that they will have to play 'up' off this ball, so player 1 should be ready to attack the next ball after their response.
