🔥If you’re struggling with your one hander, I want you to copy Wawrinka up to the contact and and Copil after contact. 🎾
1. Change your grip to an eastern backhand grip the moment you see the ball coming to your backhand. 🎾
2. Keep the racket head near your head during the backswing and have your non hitting hand on the throat. 🎾
3. Keep your back elbow up and away from your body to keep the racket more vertical and not allow it to lay open too much. When your elbow drops and the racket lays open too much the swing can become too big and it’s hard to close the racket later in the swing. 🎾
4. When you drop the racket down below the ball be sure to close the racket face slightly 🎾
5. Swing up to contact. Since you closed the racket face prior to contact, the racket face will now be square (vertical) at contact allowing you to brush up the ball for topspin 🎾
6. Keep the wrist angle between your arm and the racket intact through the follow through. When done, finish with the correct side of the letter “V”. If you’re right handed, finish with the racket high and tilted to the left. If you’re left handed, finish high with the racket tilted to the right. 🔥

Before you even mention it, yes, Novak resets his racket while taking his racket back (racket drops a bit then comes back up to get to the 180 position in the back). DO NOT COPY THE RESET...COPY MY GREEN LINE!! .
1. Ready position
2. Change grip to continental and take racket back 180 degrees behind you
3. Drop racket down below contact and close racket face a bit
4. Swing low to high and brush the ball with a vertical racket face at contact to create topspin .
5. Extend out high toward your target
6. Finish high with your hands at eye level

Yes this is a repost...
🔥Would you like a clear and easy way to know we’re to aim your shots in doubles? Simply know where you are on the court (baseline, net, etc.) and try to hit your shot to the opponent who’s standing in the same place on their side of the court. Baseliners should avoid net players most of the time, and net players shouldn’t just give it right back to the baseliner (baseliner is farther away and has more time to react), they should poach and hit to the feet of the opposing net player. This isn’t foolproof, and 20% of the time this aiming strategy is wrong to follow. But having this as your base aiming strategy may clarify things for you if you need a little help with your doubles game. Good luck!! 👍🎾🔥

Yes this is a repost...I have many new followers who haven’t seen this yet🎾🔥Staying palm down during the service motion can be tough for students learning the game. But simply saying “don’t go palm up” won’t keep them from going palm up. Here’s a three drill progression I put my students through that allows them to master their service technique very quickly. Tag a friend and let me know your thoughts ⬇️. .

🔥When you’re playing a good opponent who takes advantage of short balls by driving them hard to a corner, simply guess and hope you’re right. If you wait to see where they hit the ball you won’t have enough time to run the ball down. But if you guess, at least you’ll be right 50% of the time and have a chance to win. Good luck!!

Slightly close your racket face prior to contact to ensure you have a vertical racket face at contact.

Copy Djokovic’s backhand follow through by making sure your hands get higher than head level. You’ll get more spin, depth, power, and you’ll hit a much heavier ball. 👍

🔥Backhand overheads are simply the reverse of the correct service motion🔥 .
Step 1. Be sure you’re holding a continental grip
Step 2. Turn your back to your opponent, point tip of racket at the ground in a pronated position (palm facing out away from you)
Step 3. Supinate your arm as you reach up to hit the ball. Continue supinating so that your palm faces toward you after contact. .

Be honest...Could you do a better job moving your feet during practice and play? Could your split steps be better? Check out this video of Steffi Graf on YouTube (type in Steffi Graf Footwork and you’ll find it). Now THAT’S footwork. 🔥👟

Sorry, but I had to. Improve your topspin serve by staying sideways and feeling like your swinging along the baseline, rather than swinging toward the service box. After contact your arm should still pronate and your strings will face the BACK fence. 😊

Hip turn is essential to hitting great forehands. Making sure your back foot turns up on the toe is an easy way to ensure hip turn. 👍

Different strokes for different folks? Sure. But as a coach, I want my players (who aren’t world class athletes) to have efficient technique that won’t break down under pressure. Sloane Stephens has one of the best forehands in the world, but I’d rather have my students copy @laurzashley or Li Na when it comes to the size of the backswing.

If you’re determined to learn the “prestretch” forehand, here’s what to do:
1. Get rid of your death grip...a looser grip will help you. .
2. After you take the racket back, drop your racket to the side of your hand rather than behind your hand (make sure your strings are facing down)
3. Near the bottom of the drop begin moving your hand forehand and allow the head of the racket to move back simultaneously (the loose grip allows the weight of the racket to accomplish this step naturally)
4. Swing up and through contact.
