How do you teach position anticipation?

My daughter has the fundamentals and strokes but lacks where to anticipate her position on the court to finish out the point.

for good anticipation, a good focus at opponent's racquet as well as reaction with the ball

Farhad RoshanaieCoach, United States of America

Ask her to get into the athletic stance, then you throw 5 to 6 balls toward her in different direction (right, left, up and down), she should keep her eyes on the ball and react fast, catch them in the air and put them on the ground. Another method is teaching her high percentage tennis like why and when cross court or the on the line shot.
