Lesson #44

Hold Your Shots for Deception

Level: Advanced Players

Category: Deception

Purpose: To make your opponent twist and turn, and be constantly off bala

Learning points:

  1. Get to the ball quickly.
  2. Prepare your racquet early.
  3. Set your feet for a particular shot.
  4. Delay your stroke until you sense your opponent has committed to the shot you are shaped for. Then play a different shot.
  5. Use a short backswing, and more wrist snap than usual.
  6. Your head should remain still after the shot has been played, in order to continue the deception even after you have played the ball.
  7. Don't delay a shot if your opponent is already well out of position.
