You are completely flat footed, standing and waiting for the ball to come to you before moving. Easy concept to change. Second simple thing. When you serve in the deuce court you are standing way too far to the right or near the sideline. That would be about the place to stand if you were playing doubles. Standing there, you have too much ground to cover to the left.
Good luck with your tennis progress.
Thanks sonof tennis. Your suggestions are noted. I have a match this evening. Will get some video if possible.
