    The circle area is an interesting concept. Would it be expected that 80% of the balls in doubles would land in the circle area as well?. it would seem reasonable to expect that except for the fact the net man would cut off most of those hit there on the return of serve.

    Interesting coincidence. I was experimenting with this concept the other day even before I watched this video with good success. It seems that an improved version is to start a rally hitting 5 balls inside the circle, then start hitting outside the circle. This allows both players to build some rhythm and consistency and then create the offensive opportunity.

    mI'm with James; we already practice corner to corner trying to hit deep (thanks Ian for Doubles Domination for teaching us how to do double practice with just a partner). I will add this to our rallying as it will be fun but what do the statistics say about doubles, in this regard?

      The statistics on doubles are very clear, Tom: the most successful doubles players and teams target the middle of the court a TON. The doubles version of this drill would essentially keep the circle there but become the target!

      Now that's an interesting idea, James. I think the circle would stay there but become the target instead of what to avoid, haha.
