Nikhil (super champ) honing in on his inside out forehand.
I try to work on one key element at a time, keeping training short and sweet but really focusing on making a difference on enhancing that particular shot so it becomes a weapon for success.
Preparation is key! Here you see him moving forward and backward from deep balls to short balls, high deep topspin recovery shots, to approach to finishing off points using quick feet movements. Knowing when to hit what shot and how to place it, is very important at tournament level. When to keep the ball consistent and when to attack and take risks is a key element to successfully winning matches. Practice always makes progress!

Here is a fun drill coach and son demonstrate for intermediate to advanced tennis players on a mini tennis court. You can get a great workout and at the same time build a high level of concentration, quick feet, hand eye coordination and great control and consistency. You don’t have to go to the tennis court, setup a rope or a net anywhere you can find a strip of concrete and off you go. Grab a family member or student. If you are at beginner level start with transition balls, Red or Orange, first with one ball and gradually go two balls going at the same time.
As you get better, start with one regular tennis ball and then advance to two going at the same time! Now go out there and have some fun!
