The inside out forehand is a great shot to learn how to hit. You’ll see players like Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic run around their backhands and hit an inside out forehands to take control of the point.
Today’s tennis lesson will cover the most popular stance you can use on this particular shot.
Many coaches will just instruct you to move around the ball on this shot, but they won’t tell you HOW to run around your backhand and set up properly.
One of the big keys on the inside out forehand is to avoid turning sideways as you move around the ball and to stay more open. You want to have your hips face the net more as you shuffle around the ball.
You’ll often find yourself hitting this shot from a semi open stance on this shot when you move correctly around your backhand.
Next time you move around your backhand to crush an inside out forehand, keep your hips facing the net more and load up into a semi open stance.
