This is a footwork tennis drill that should be performed at fast speed.
Player starts at the baseline center and, at command, he shuffles sideways to the left corner (baseline and singles side line), then shuffles along the baseline to the other corner (right). He gets back to the baseline center from where he sprints to the left corner of service line and singles side line; from there he back pedals back to baseline center. He sprints straight ahead to the service-T (center line and service line); back pedals to the baseline center. One more sprint to the right corner of the service line and singles side line; back pedal to the baseline center.
Repeat this pattern 2-3 times depending of player’s athleticism and conditioning, at full speed.
Note: This drill is great for speed and stamina.
