Tennis: Challenging Shot After the Serve

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Player serves.
  • Coach throws deep and low ball immediately after player lands on the court.
  • Player quickly moves back and responds with controlled forehand stroke.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, Player works on a challenging first shot after the serve. An accurate, deep return is the most difficult option for server to respond effectively; so coaches have to spend significant amount of time to teach players how to get out of troubles without losing the point. When the return is solid and deep, Player has to quickly react with proper movement and remember to focus just on control - not on the power. Coach, who throws the balls from a short distance, forces Player to quickly react after the serve and adapt both physically and technically to hit an effective shot.
