Serve & Be Ready

Many thanks. This resource has helped me a lot, as a coach and as...

DESCRIPTION

Serve and return are the most important strokes to practice before a tournament because every point will start with these strokes.

The last practice sessions while preparing for competition should include a lot of repetitions while serving and responding to make sure that players practice tactical patterns and keep reaction as quick as possible.

It is not the time to work anymore on technical habits - grooving automatic habits and keeping the body at optimal state are definitely more important to focus on.

COACHING POINTS

  • Player works on returning ability.
  • By having coach on the service line, player has less time for reaction.
  • They have to keep high level of focus and maintain good intensity of their body moving.
  • Additionally, player should adjust technique according to the results of his return. The same ability will be needed while competing against rivals who serve really fast or who mix their serves up so player will have to adjust to every other serve.
