The 6 game situations in Tennis

Written by Mark Luyk

Hi, As promised I will talk a bit aboutrepparttar six different situations you can be in on a tennis court. Last week I told you it was important first and foremost to develop consistency in each one of them. The six game situations are: 1.Serving................................. This is perhapsrepparttar 142147 most important game situation at least as far as playing matches is concerned. Why? Because every point starts with a serve. Unfortunately, more often than not it isrepparttar 142148 stroke least practiced. 2.Returningrepparttar 142149 serve................. For obvious reasons this is a very important stroke as well. If you can't do anything else, make sure you keeprepparttar 142150 ball in play with your return. In that way you will giverepparttar 142151 opponent a chance to make a mistake... 3.Baseline rallying...................... When beginners first are capable of hitting 5, 6, 7 times overrepparttar 142152 net with me, I tell them: 'You see, it's not that hard! You're playing tennis now!' Usually this happens duringrepparttar 142153 first lesson and their faces always lighten up when I tell them. I think this is becauserepparttar 142154 basic idea of tennis (to hitrepparttar 142155 ball overrepparttar 142156 net inrepparttar 142157 opponent's court) is expressed so clearly in this situation. 4.Approaching + playing volleys........... When you get torepparttar 142158 net atrepparttar 142159 right moment (you get a shorter ball and your opponent is [slightly] out of position) and you can play a decent volley it makesrepparttar 142160 game of tennis much more fun. Play can get more exciting and unexpected when one or both players show up atrepparttar 142161 net from time to time.
