Tennis: 1 air, 1 bounce to ad

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

DESCRIPTION

The player stands at the net, with cones set up in the ad corner. The coach feeds lobs to the player, who alternates hitting overheads in the air and after the bounce deep to the ad side.

COACHING POINTS

Ability to hit overhead successfully is dependent on many factors. Strong wind and sun are weather conditions that can harm player's effectiveness. On the other hand, bright lighting on the indoor courts can also be a problem while dealing with lobs.

In this drill, the player works on overhead in the air and after the bounce. While alternating these shots, the player learns which balls he can let drop and which balls are better to take in the air. The coach should emphasize small adjustment steps to guarantee good positioning to the ball.
