Dictating play with Forehands from the Backhand Corner

This Sportplan Session, uses progressive drills and explanatory videos to help you to get your players striking powerful inside-out forehand strokes, Gonzo style!

Fernando González, affectionately known as Gonzo or the La Reina Bomber for his ferocious forehand, is one of the best players to regularly use their forehand on the wrong side. Many players who favour their forehand to their backhand, such as Nadal, regularly use this stroke to ensure they hit the ball back with as much venom as possible.

To get all your players striking a biting forehand from their backhand side this session get players to work in threes - playing co-operative rallies to improve their stroke play, movement and consistency. Whilst one player works specifically on their forehand from the backhand corner your other players will have to keep the ball alive, using down the line ball and cross-court shots.

Everyone will have a chance to work in all the positions, as players rotate regularly to make sure they stay alert and continue to think carefully about the next shot they're going to play and how they intend to play it!
