Without wasting any time, let’s get to it
Step 1: Quickly recognize that your opponent hit a short ball. If you take too long to do so, you’ll probably be late.
Step 2: Don’t try to take the ball too early. Some people rush to take the ball earlier and they end up taking their own time away, resulting in a poor execution.
Step 3: Early and shorter take back and turn of the body
Step 4: Have a solid base. Do not hit running. Make sure you stop and create a good base before making contact -Step 5: push the ground but don’t jump. Using the ground gives you stability as you make contact -Step 6: during and after contact, make sure your body is moving towards the part of the court you want to hit the ball.
Extra tip: you DON’T NEED to hit harder. You either hit the ball harder or you take time away (unless your name is Roger Federer). Here you chose to take time away so pick a big target and go for it.
