  • So, in tennis we have tie-breaker, yes.
  • In squash we have Set 2.
  • So, they are one and the same thing?

When we start embracing tennis terms I get concerned that we will lose our games language which I thought we were trying to preserve, eg Lob/Toss, Smash/Volley Kill, Split Step, and so on.

  • Just wondering, as a few failed seaches are coming through which in fact are referring to tennis terms.
  • Maybe our "Squash Speak" needs to be expanded?

You reckon?

imagine yourself running. all of a sudden you stop yourself by putting your feet astride your body (slightly outside the line of the shoulders. this is a split step. - it is mainly a balancing mechanism.

tennis players do it when the are coming to net just prior to making a volley.

I coach the split step when a player is moving to the back of the court (especially on the backhand) to return the ball off the back wall. it improve balance and therefore accuracy.

I will be adding someting on this to our library shortly.

ps a split step is also used at times on take off
