Drill Seven – Low backhand volleys down the line. Set up the ball machine to feed balls that are dipping inside the service box and start slightly behind the service line. Move forward to pick up the low backhand volley and aim down the line, make sure to get down low using your legs to lunge into the ball. After you hit the volley, recover one or two steps back and repeat.
And that’s where a tennis ball machine like the Slinger Bag comes in as it provides you with consistent incoming balls that allow you to put in a lot of repetitions. You should aim for around 200–300 repetitions per session for a certain technical flaw you want to correct, which means you’ll need 10–20 sessions like that to reach 2000–5000 repetitions in total.
The above diagram shows the drill set up for a right-handed person. For a left-handed player, stand on the other side of the center mark. Step 1: Set the tennis ball machine up in the center of the court approximately halfway between the service line and the baseline.
