Coaching points

In this exercise, the player works on control of the racquet head. Different height balls require the player to change the racquet angle (open more while hitting low volleys and close more with higher ones) to achieve desired results. Coach should also pay attention to the player's footwork because many mistakes come from lowering the racquet instead of bending the knees.
