Remember to analyze the warm-up- give this ball to your opponent early to see how they handle it!

Keeping the Ball OUT of their Comfort Zone
During yesterdays match, I discussed keeping the ball out of the opponents strike-zones or out of their "comfort zones". This particular tactic demonstrated in the short video below is excellent. It works well with the the non-aggressive player or the player that won't move their feet to get into position to handle the shot. This provides an excellent opportunity to put you into an offensive situation so take advantage of it and follow your shot, you'll find yourself finishing the point at the net.Putting your opponent under stress... you may find that they'll start trying to hit outside of their zone or running around the backhand forcing more unforced errors.
