This tennis drill looks at hitting three aggressive shots, which sees the player move into the court, hitting the ball early and moving into the net to close out the point. These three shots take time away from the opponent, developing an effective strategy against a pusher or moonballer who plays a predictable style of tennis.
- The first shot that is hit by the player is a swinging forehand volley, that is hit on-the-full in the air. This could also be substituted for a short ball that is hit early and on the rise to take time away from their opponent.
- After this the player must run to the net and hit an aggressive volley at one of the cones.
- The third shot is for the player to run back and hit an aggressive smash at either of the cones.
- The coach will feed all of these shots.
For advanced players this drill can be replicated on the backhand side.
