Nick, Tennis coach

COACHING POINTS

In this drill player works on tactical scenario including serve and offensive forehand. Wide serve is always a good option to open the court so players should practise this direction quite often to be able to execute it sistematically while playing matches. Easier response from the opponent is a great opportunity to attack so this mindset coach has to instill in players. Most of the time player looks for shots to the deuce or ad side while attacking but coach should explain to them that from time to time it is a good option to attack deeply to the center and come to the net after the shot. It won't only surprise the opponent but it will also limit rival's possiblities to successfuly hit difficult passing shot.
