square up

you need to square the racquet up for the hit

shot goal

your long range shot goal is to hit your top spin so it jumps to shoulder height and your slices stay below calf level–you try to hit the ball outside the opponent’s happy zone

the wall

in doubles when you come to the net –join your partner on a line and form a wall

split step

when you come to the net you want to do a neutral split step just before the opponent’s hit– to handle all the possible shots that could come

lob to the backhand side

when you lob try to get the shot to the opponent’s backhand side –even if you don’t clear their head it is tough to run around and tougher to hit it high on the backhand side
