In this video lesson we are going to talk about some variations on your footwork that could really improve your game and give you more power on your shots. We actually have two of them right here:
- Come around the cone, and step-and-hit when the ball comes; and
- Use a step-shuffle hit.
Performing both of these variations require great focus on keeping your balance at the end of the shot, and agility in moving around the cone. I’m going to show you some examples right here! So go on and check this video out!

Great quick tip. Helped me feel that I do not always need to try the open stance, since I am old school and used more of the semi-closed in most of my playing years.
Scott, stepping in is key to success on the forehand.
Many thanks for sharing your experience!
You are welcome!
Great practice tip. It is incredible how at the 4.0 level we don’t move our feet enough to set up for a simple shot and often lose our balance in the execution.
Robert, I am so happy you see this. It is so true. Get that balance right!
Jeff, I am so glad to have discovered you. My daughter is a high school sophomore and your instant serve tips and training is just what we have been looking for. Tennis pro’s cost $75 – $85 an hour which is out side of my reach. Were happy to be your new students.
Harry, What a gift and an honor to get this message. I hope I can continue to help you and your daughter.
