Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

Player serves wide from the deuce side. Coach throws a ball to the deuce side. Player hits deep forehand cross court and recovers. Coach throws another ball to the deuce side. Player hits deep forehand down the line.

COACHING POINTS

Many players have great forehand skills when working on them in an isolated form. Unfortunately the placement and consistency are lost immediately when the forehand is preceded by the serve. Reaction the next shot after the serve is a skill so players have to learn how to use forehand with connection to the delivery.

In this drill player works on basic tactical pattern. Player serves wide from the deuce side and hits forehand cross-court and forehand down the line. This pattern is simple so players should use it when the pressure is on to reduce the chance for errors. The goal of this pattern is to keep the opponent on the run and hit winner down the line of force the rival to hit an easy response that we can put away on the next shot.
