Tennis: Slice And Take Forehand

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Coach feeds the ball to ad side
  • Player hits backhand slice down the line
  • Coach feeds the ball back with higher topspin
  • Player finishes with forehand inside out

COACHING POINTS

  • In this drill, player learns how to use slice to get out of the uncomfortable situation and to increase the chance for hitting another ball with forehand
  • Hitting backhand cross-court shots makes it easier for the rival to direct the ball again to our backhand but using low bouncing slice in down the line direction is a completely different scenario
  • Player will either have to player cross-court to our forehand or will have to lift the ball up with more topspin and play it in narrow lane down the line to try to place the ball again to the backhand
  • Player should be ready to take advantage of any higher ball and use it to hit offensive forehand inside out
