More on Back Court Lob

  • Swing under and through the ball.
  • Keep the racket face a little more open and increase racket head speed slightly.
  • A little more speed is required when swinging as it is necessary to take the ball from the back wall to the front wall, and rebound in the back corner.
  • No forearm rotation.
  • Follow through to the target.
  • Aim about 30cm from the front outline and a racket head away from side wall for a straight lob.
  • Swing parallel to side wall for a straight shot.
  • For a cross court lob aim to hit high on the opposite side wall and about a metre and a half behind the back of the service box.
  • Be sure to get down to the ball especially when the ball comes off the back wall.
