Coaching points

Running around the backhand is most of the time related to the big winners inside out or inside in. Seeing opponent moving around the backhand, many players take few steps behind the baseline to prepare for the heavy ball placed into one of the corners. Knowing that, drop shot is an easy opportunity to win the point by pretending to hit a big forehand.

In this drill, player runs around the backhand while returning from deuce side and hits forehand drop shot inside out. The most important aspect to work on is the same backswing. Returner can't show any changes in technique because it will open the door for the opponent to predict the shot and start running forward.
