Now we’re going to be talking about direction
of the ball. Basically, you have two directions that we’re going to be talking about. We have
cross ward which is when you go from the right side of your court to the right side of your
opponent’s court and then we have down the line when we go from the right side of your
court to the left side of your court. If you are right handed and your opponent is right
handed, it’s going to be forehand against forehand on the cross ward it’s going to be
forehand against their backhand on the down the line. When you want to hit it cross ward,
you going to prepare for your forehand shot as we talked about previously, bring your
racquet down. You’re going to be hitting the ball just a little more in front of you and
this is going to be basically the point where you’re going to be impacting the ball. If
you see it, the face of my racquet is basically looking to that direction where I’m going
to be hitting on and that’s the basics of tennis where you impact the ball, the way
your racquet is looking, that’s going to be determining the direction of the ball. For
forehand on the line, the same concept; you’re going to be hitting the ball. You’re going
to hit it just a little more behind.

  1. Always try and hit the ball in front of you! some people are different, so play however you want. watch any person who really gets any decent amount of spin on the ball, they hit it before it passes the non dominant arm.
