Lately I had been missing my crosscourt forehand. It was getting to where I was losing points to any player good enough to get wide angles on the deuce side. Balls I used to be able to crush back I was either missing, or having to loop or just was blowing the shot wide. I made an adjustment. Instead of getting on the ball of my foot and trying to move into the court, I instead plant my outside foot on the ground and drive into the ball more with that foot firmly on the ground (heel down as well). Im also moving my weight more to the left side than into the court. I believe this change actually balances me a lot better. The ball contact is a lot cleaner and my CC forehand immediately started to come together again. I can now attack when pulled wide, and a coach I play with has been telling me this skill will win me matches against lesser players who can only loop and moonball back when they are pulled off the court. So it seems like in this particular scenario you want to have your outside foot planted on the ground more then when you normally make contact near the normal recovery spot, and have your weight moving more to the side than into the court. Does this make sense, or is it something that just works for me and is not necessarily the optimal technique?
