Tennis Drill Demonstration
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
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.
- 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
