Timing, Footwork and Simplcity

There are many different ways to hit a return of serve. The focus can be on placement, power or just being able to get it back in play.  The key ingredients to a great Return of Serve are:

  1. Getting to the ball with proper footwork
  2. Setting up with a simple racquet take back, and
  3. Using the opponents power are the key ingredients to a great Return of Serve.

If the ball is served at you slowly, than a regular Groundstroke backswing is fine. However, if the ball is coming fast, a short Backswing is crucial!
