Racket-head speed drills. These are
drills in which players are forced to accelerate the racket-head targeting mainly the forearm and wrist.
In all these drills players should try to swing as fast as
possible. Control is secondary. Ball against the net the players swings the ball against the
net as fast as possible using short back swings. The player stands very close to the net and swings with topspin. The racquet has to travel fast The players use good footwork to get in position every time. This drill should be practiced with forehands and backhands. Fast Feed Drill The coach hand-feeds balls in
rapid succession The player swings the racket-head as fast
as possible hitting all balls in the air. The coach will hand-feed six to eight balls. The player.
should swing with a lot of topspin and swing the racket-head as fast as possible Regular Feeds The coach feeds balls from across the
net. The player stands 3 feet inside the baseline and hit either off the bounce shots
or low swinging volleys with maximum acceleration. The players need to adjust to be able to hit the ball effectively. They should try to swing fast with a lot
of topspin trying to keep the ball in the court. The coach will feed forehand and backhands

  1. Let's translate your book into japanese, contact me, also would love to get you over here, I give clinics and seminars myself here in japan, thanks.

  2. Absolutely right. Ultimately what strikes the ball is a racquet head and faster it moves-more the speed,power. Very nice and a core drill

  3. I like this, just one thing.. in the last part of the video both players are accelerating the balls from the baseline but they are starting the swing very low, if that's the case, gravity is not helping them with the acceleration because they are lifting the weight of the racquet plus the weight of the ball unless they are training to get a stronger arm. Gravity is suppose to help them if they prepare backwards and high. Good video though

  4. What a bunch of crap. Ask Nick Bolettieri if they teach this crap against the net at the IGM tennis academies……..I don't think so.

  5. This drill will improve your speed since the liquidity becomes more but you need to have a technical correct forehand this drill will then make it powerful.Very interesting.But I am not ok with wrist flicking.Good video

  6. wunderfull ideas for the advanced players developing the hand skill, Thank's a lot for the vid πŸ˜‰ by the way, how many nets a year do you break with your students ? πŸ˜‰ grats to your students !! a lot of control, after so many years of practicing the "losing control"of the head racket. Have fun πŸ™‚ and train hard πŸ˜‰
