an explanation about Feds footwork on return. landing from the split step, recognize it's gonna b bh and push off with right foot and make the all important left step. this step should be well placed for the incoming ball and must be a solid step meaning firm heel contact on the ground and solid enough you should able to stand on the left foot alone at this point. also while all weight is on this foot the racquet should b ready to swing forward. do heel to toe weight transfer (lift heel) for timing and push off on the toe for the right step and at the same time swing forward and at the same time push the left leg back. it's kinda like a criss cross step but one leg each. this footwork counter balances the upper body rotation and stabilize the swing making it controllable.
