Let's say I am at the center mark, I hop/split step as my opponent hits to my fh corner requiring me to move laterally, which foot should push as the first step? Is there an optimal pattern?
I do know this though so take note.
After you split step the fastest way to get to the ball is as follows.
If ball is on right side of you and you split step the first foot to move off the ground at moment of impact after split is the LEFT foot.
If the ball is on your left side at moment of impact after split you should move your right leg.
Also remember this is the fastest way to get to balls when returning!
If ball is on right side move left leg if ball is on left side of body move your right leg.
