Power Shot Tips
The key to power shots is to 'go for it' when the opportunity arises.
Don't go for shots you are not qualified to make. Often it is not a matter of shot production, its's a matter of trying to do too much.
Against a serve and volleyer, try to get to the net ahead of him. Let him worry about you.
Stay basic, KISS Keep It Simple Stupid.
Don't take a full backswing on a smash, take the racquet straight to the back of the head.
Some players achieve great success despite of their unorthodoxy, not because of it.
Never take the approach shot and only half hit it, hit it crisp and place it.
Hit it low and harder.
The smart tennis player always gives the opponent more chances to make an error than he gives himself.
Make your first volley at the 'T' and you have 50 percent chance of winning the point.
Make the first volley 3 feet from the net, and your chances of winning the point increases to 90 percent.
The volley is a positioning shot. Don't go for too many outright winners. You will get your share with good placement.
On hardcourts and clay, if you can't put your first volley away, it's better to volley back down the line. If you volley crosscourt, there is a good chance you will get passed.
The more you hit through a power shot, the more apt you are to keep the swing true.
If you have built your game around one outstanding shot, don't overlook that shot in practice and only practice your weaknesses.
If you practice for two hours, spend one hour on your power shot, and the other hour on the rest of your game. Remember the power shot wins your matches.
When volleying keep moving forward, don't make the first volley and then stand and watch.
