Tennis Drill Demonstration
- Player stands behind the service line.
- Coach hits all the balls high to the forehand side.
- Player using forehand drive hits 2 shots to the deuce and 2 shots to the ad side.
In this drill, player works on the consistency and control of the forehand drive. Shots in the air require good footwork and positioning - coach has to make sure that players improve these areas. Additionally, it is crucial to work on proper pace to have desirable amount of repetitions needed to build confidence with this shot. With more advanced players coach can hit the balls with topspin to see how they can adapt their own technique against much more difficult lob shot.
