Hello and welcome everybody to my new tennis video. This time I will show you how to hit a ball between your legs. The stroke is also know as a tweener. Especially Roger Federer made the tweener quite popular in the last few years,
and was able to hit a lot of winners with it. Today I gonna show you how to learn the stroke, what
you should take care of and what you shouldn’t do. First I will show you the stroke from a standing position. You use a continental grip, and hit the ball in
front of your body and close to the ground. You hit the ball with a short swing and you don’t
have to swing the raquet to far between your legs. If you twist your wrist a little bit
you can give the ball different directions. Now, I show you how to hit the ball in the run. It is important that the ball is alway in front
of you and to keep the ball in view. You hit the ball just before it touches the ground a second time. You have to adjust your speed for a perfect contact point. When you practice hard enough, you can try the stroke during a match. It’s mostly a stroke to show off, but it makes a lot of
fun if you are able to win a point with it.
