Tennis: Open The Court To Play Behind

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Player serves wide from the deuce side.
  • Coach hits the ball back in a cross-court direction.
  • Player steps inside the court and hits a forehand drop shot cross-court.

COACHING POINTS

  • Here, the player plans to surprise an opponent while holding an offensive positioning on the court.
  • A deuce wide serve is a great tool to open up the court and put the opponent into a difficult place.
  • A lot of players expect the server to go down the line after a cross-court return so they immediately run into this corner. By choosing a cross-court drop shot, the player can surprise the returner and make it almost impossible for the opponent to adjust and make it to the drop shot.
