To be able to vary a game plan means being able to play both attacking and defensive shots, as follows:
- Being able to play soft and controlled strokes, and attacking shots simultaneously/alternately
- Being aware as to when to play which shot.
- At an average level of play games tend to follow a pattern of, eg both players hitting hard during a rally irrespective of the ball or player positioning or, if one player slows down, the tempo of the rallies tend to die down.
To test these skills attempt the following pair training:-
- Rally down the forehand wall
- A- Attacks to length (volley the ball if possible to length)
- B-Defends to length (Volley the ball if possible to length)
- Either player to boast only if absolutely necessary to keep the rally going.
I would suggest to train on both forehand as well as backhand sides, and each routine for 10 minutes every time you go on court.
Let me know what affect these 3 training routines have on your play, and what affect you notice in your opponent's play?
