Firstly, to play touch shots accurately, the opponent needs time. It is easier to execute drops from the front of the court. It is necessary to take away the opportunities from the opponent, and if you cannot do that successfully, be sure to move forward every time the ball lands in the front of the court, expecting the drop.
- To play touch shots the opponent needs to be in front.
- Touch shots from the back will have a higher error rate.
So what can be done to take the drops out of the opponent's armoury?
- Increase the tempo of the game - attack. If increasing the tempo of the game results in a loss of accuracy, slow down enough to gain control of the ball, and keep the ball tight to the side walls.
- Concentrate on keeping the opponent in the back of the court (watch for the boast from the back).
- And, if your return lands short, be ready to R U N.
