Okay now I want to talk to you about your
first move to the volley. It’s, it’s very, it’s common that people will just pivot and
lock the feet. And what I see a lot of is this. Is though, if you can just show them
right here, just that pivot right there, that’s a common mistake. It locks your feet up, you
can’t move you’re also going sideways, you’re not able to go forward. So we’re going to
show you how to efficiently go forward and get your body weight going into the ball,
with your first move in the volley. Watch Gustavo as he steps out and his first move
right here for the forehand volley. See how his right foot came out? Very, very important.
And he turns his shoulder at the same time. So once he has that step out his shoulders
comes around and he sets the racket at the same time and then he goes into it. We’re
going to show you that one more time. Steps out, sets the racket at the same time. Steps
out, sets the racket. Then he can efficiently move forward, he can also cover way more court
than just crossing over.

  1. What pace serve is best for improving split step?
    I realise a fast serve means I will split step further back in the court because the return is hit earlier. I also realise a slower serve means I will get closer to the net before the split step but this could produce a stronger return for me to handle.
