Tennis: Big serve with drop shot winner

Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Player serves to the T from ad side.

The coach hits the ball back to the player's backhand side.

The player finishes with a backhand drop shot down the line.

  • Place cones in the deuce service box for the player to aim for when hitting the drop shot

COACHING POINTS

In this drill the player works on following up his/her serve with a drop shot down the line.

After a good serve, many players will respond with a weaker return so they are forced to take few steps behind the baseline to achieve a proper defensive position.

Smart players can use this information to mix the rhythm and hit a down the line drop shot for an easy winner.

PROGRESSION

  • Place cones on the ad side for the player to aim for when serving
  • Make the distance between the cones on the deuce side smaller as players skill levels increase
