Tennis: Hips to the net

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

The player stands next to the net and imitates serving action. Player's goal is to touch the net with the hips while being in the trophy position.

COACHING POINTS

Watching top players in the world, it is clearly visible that serves are technically sound. Players spend many hours on the practice courts to make sure that serve won't disappoint them during the match. For every player it should be a priority to develop great serve because it is the only stroke in tennis that we have full control over.

In this exercise, the player tries to add hips into the shot. Pushing hips forward is an important part of serving technique to pre-stretch the muscles and generate additional power for this stroke. The player doesn't need a coach to make this change because he/she knows exactly when the job is done (if he/she touches the net, it means it is done correctly).
