Get The Finish Correct
Let’s go over an advanced tennis tip on how you can move laterally on your forehand.
Many players especially those just starting out are given the wrong information about how to move laterally to across the court. Unfortunately, this bad advice sets players back as long as they play until they get the correct tips to help them with their movement.
Players like yourself may think taking several little steps is the best way to move more that wide ball especially on the forehand. But the truth is, this is not a natal way to move.
These short, choppy steps will actually throw your rhythm off and as balls start coming faster to you, you will either feel rushed trying to get to the ball or not even be able to reach it.
Get The Technique Down
A more advanced tennis tip (but highly efficient) is to take the minimum steps necessary to get to the wide ball. When you come out of the split step, make a strong crossover step out the wide ball. If you make that large strode with your crossover, you might only have to take one more step to load behind the ball before making contact using an open stance.
Sometimes you will have to take a few more steps than what I just suggested but ideally, the less steps the better.
Next time you are out on the court and want to try a more advanced tennis tip, see if you can take less steps to get out to the forehand.
