This classical tennis drill is probably know by anyone. But it definitely deserves its place on a tennis drills website.
There is nothing to set up, all the coach has to do is to explain the drill to his players (students). Both of the players start behind the baseline, in the Center. In the video, one of the players makes the first feed. The coach can of course decide to feed the first ball himself
Practicing with the coach:
At the beginning the coach decides who is going cross-court and who is going long-line. One of the player feeds the Ball, from then on it is clear. Play a controlled rally (remember that this is not a match).
The player that goes long-line will always doing more of the running, as his opponent is able to play the angles.
You can either do this for a few minutes and then make the players change their tasks, change after every 3 to 10 rallies (depending of how long the rally takes) or always let the one that feeds the ball go cross-court.
Practicing with friends:
Easy, you only need a hitting partner. The only thing you won’t get is the coaches advice and tips.
