- Off a loose serve
- It is effective off a loose serve, because the Server is often "ducking" or too scared to move into the T (centre of the court).
- As a surprise, when the opponent is expecting length
- It is better to make it a hard shot, that is not too high above the tin, and does not travel too far along the front wall.
- The preparation for the shot to look like a drive or drop shot.
- Use your body (by turning), which can then often cause the opponent to move, and have to run right around your body to get to the ball.
What is a "give away" when playing a reverse boast?
- Standing "front on" (facing the front wall), limiting the possible returns. Also making it hard to know your opponent's court positioning.
- Short backswing (shows the opponent the ball is going to be struck well in front of the body) which would indicate a cross court drive or reverse boast.
- Playing the shot too often (opponent reads it or takes a guess), especially if your game lacks a drop shot.
