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'm a righty and if moving fast to my right...I lift my right foot and push with my left for a quick 1st step before crossing over. That right foot move is short and more of a slide and pivot sometimes. Since it seemed others are telling you the opposite, I watched several games of Fed against Murray. Each time I saw him pushed to cover ground quick, he did it as I explained. I'll look into this more. Is this what some call a gravity step?
