You can fix that with footwork. Do footwork drills.

Another big mistake I see nowadays is letting the ball drop too low. Not only does this force you to be less aggessive, it causes you to miss-hit alot more.

don't miss the ball

lol...that's a start.

also, look at the ball, have your feet planted before you hit it, and most importantly...swing at the ball.

yeah i alway let it get too close to me and that cause me to lock my elbow because it's too close.\

it's bad to hit with you elbow bent right?:confused:

hitting the ball too close to your body, as stated before..
and also, on slower balls.. swinging too early...
if anything, it's footwork.. getting to the right position. it's 80% of the game.

er... hmm.. more beginner and intermediate players leave their non-dominant hand somewhere off to the side... and only use only the arm they're using to hit the ball. their left hand should follow their right one during the takeback.. some pro's hold onto the neck of their racquets while taking back..

The biggest thing I see is people not setting the racket up high enough and far back enough on the forehand and back hand ect. Being set in proper position makes all the difference.

start: dont let to ball get too close to your body.

And don't hit the ball until its close enough.

Don't grip the racquet too tightly. Pro tells me to think "2" on a scale of "5".

Also dont keep your knees locked and have no shoulder turn.

Most people say to swing through the ball to hit the next 4, others say miss the next 4.

Going for too much at inopportune moments. I mean, I'm all for powering a forehand down the line on almost every shot, because I play at a level where most of the people I play don't move me around or pressure me like a coach might do to me, so I can do things with them, but I frequently play, for instance, opponents who will try to just overpower some low, skidding slice. That's just a bad idea, it'll net itself or go out every time.
