Coaches CornerHit to their backhand!Generally players have a stronger forehand then backhand. Rafa Nadal has been doing this to Roger Federer for years and it can work for you even if you are just starting off playing.How to use this tactic1. Aim your serve and return to their backhand...(if you are playing a lefty don't forget that)2. Try to get on your forehand in rallys. Look to move around balls that are slightly on your backhand side and direct back to their backhand3. You may need to attack to their forehand side so that they leave more space for you to hit the next shot to their backhand.How to counter the tactic1. Practice your backhand...notice how many forehands players play even just in the warm up2. Make the first move in rallys..Get on the front and stop your opponent taking controlGive it a go!
