and the first technique on the table, that every player must learn. New players should learn the Forehand Drive
technique carefully, because it’s crucial to learn the correct weight transfer
from this technique. Forehand drive also helps you to feel the
ball, and learn how to impact the spin to the ball. Forehand drive and Forehand Topspin attack
share the same mechanism. You should lower your stand and bend your
abdomen. Legs are wide as
the shoulder. Right foot is little behind the left foot. By doing the weight transfer, you can easily
rotate your waist. That’s the waist
will generate most of the power to this stroke. It’s very important to keep your elbow close
to the body. If you hit with the
elbow far from the body, your shot is less consistent. New players should learn
to control the ball first, that’s why this step is very important. Please
remember: The rotation axis is the waist, but not the elbow. Keep it close to
your body. 3 tips to take away: Focus on control and
feel the ball. Do weight transfer, and
rotate the waist to generate the power. Keep the elbow close to the body, hit
the ball at it’s highest bounce or sooner. Hope this tutorial improves quickly your skills. See you, EmRatThich.
