Do you struggle with hitting the high forehand? You aren’t alone, plenty of players have trouble with this shot and aren’t sure what to do.
Former ATP Top 100 professional and current USTA High Performance Coach and USPTA Elite Professional shows you how to hit the high forehand.
When the ball is lower, in your strike zone, and you’re in the middle of the court, in most situations you’re going to step in on your forehand.
But what happens when the ball gets up high? When the ball gets up high you should recognize that do something different.
You should load up on your outside leg to jump up and hit the high forehand at shoulder height or above shoulder height. It will take some strength and coordination but it can be done.
One of the biggest mistakes is when players go up off the front foot when the ball is high, you can lose a lot of power if you do this as opposed to learning how to load up on the outside leg.
