The Run Through Approach

 

Jeff S. shows you perfect approach shot technique with the run through forehand. Anyone who is familiar with Jeff’s playing style knows that this former top 100 player on the ATP tour can get into the net and finish off points with a big volley. Don’t be surprised when this guy becomes the next big coach. He has a real grasp on both modern tennis technique and footwork.

Tennis Speed and Agility: Crossover and Reaction

 

Unfortunately, Tornado Ali Black makes this drill look much easier than it really is. She is simply in a relaxed intense focus state. This drill serves a few tennis specific purposes. Notice how the drill initially places focus on the explosive first crossover step. Next, I cue her in to the dropshot cone by saying go and pointing to the cone. She must react and move through the stroke without ever getting too close to the cone. Then we work on closing in on the volley, gettin back for the overhead and then closing back in for the volley. This is meant to be an explosive drill. Each set should last between 20 and no more than 40 seconds. Short rest periods of 20 seconds will place more focus on building anaerobic endurance, while longer 90 second rest periods will place more focus on building explosiveness. Note: You really can’t work on both explosiveness and anaerobic endurance during the same workout. Therefore, focus on what is most needed for the athlete.
