Volley technique is one of the things that I’m pickiest about when it comes to tennis instruction. It’s for that reason today’s video is one of my favorites that I brought back from Cincinnati, Ohio. It features David Ferrer deflecting volleys back to Andy Murray who’s hitting forehands and backhands on the other side. Two things that you should watch for:
1. Ferrer’s hands and racket head. I absolutely LOVE how simple he keeps things with his racket motion on both the forehand and backhand side, nothing extra at all.
2. Ferrer’s footwork. Watch how he split steps on EVERY shot that Murray hits without exception, always on the balls of his feet.
Start copying these fundamentals and your net game will definitely improve!
