Hitting Forehand High Bouncing Balls

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

We all know that we want to move to proper court positions so that we can always hit the ball at waist level, the optimum hitting zone. However, it’s not realistic in game situation. Tactically, sometimes you want to hit high balls because either you don’t want to be pushed back or you want to rob opponents of reaction time. So how we handle high balls with forehand? This first video clip, Handling High Balls on your Tennis Forehand, demonstrates that you need to raise your normal forehand swing path. In order to do this, one key point is to keep your racket high but still lower than the contact point when you bring your racket back, another point is that you want to raise your upper body higher without bending your knees too low. The second video clip, Tennis Tip – Handle the High Bouncing Ball, USPTA Master Professional Coach Pat demonstrates that a natural way to hit high ball will be to hit balls a) further away from you b) further back from your hitting zone.
