How to Finish the Point Behind a Short Ball
Do you struggle to put the ball away after you set yourself up for a short ball?
Let’s say that you stretch your opponent with an aggressive serve or groundstroke and their reply is a blocked shot that lands inside your service court… It’s a sitter – a ball waiting for you to step into and hit it aggressively, to finish the point with or produce another weak reply from your opponent.
But you don’t have the understanding or the technique to execute a short ball put-away…
Not to worry anymore!
Below, you’ll find a link to a video showing you how to execute a short ball put-away shot and three drills that you can apply if you have a tennis partner willing to help you practice it – it’s only nine minutes long!
This (free) video is a small part of the 1-hour lesson I recently had with my two daughters (9 and 8 years old) – we practiced the groundstrokes, serves, and attacking the short ball; as well as some new footwork and speed drills.
