2 Secrets to Federer’s Tennis FootworkJul 27, 2013
Roger Federer never looks like he is moving very fast, yet he’s always in the right position. People say he glides on the court. He’s an incredibly efficient player. Not everyone has Roger’s sense of anticipation, so tennis footwork drills and strength tennis exercises; are a good way to help develop foot speed, leg strength, and increase efficiency around the court.
Try performing these foot speed drills and leg strength tennis exercises, a couple of times a week. You can even incorporate some of these drills before practice or playing. Who knows you might even impress your coach or hitting partner with some dynamic footwork.
With all foot speed drills ensure you’re in a ‘ready stance position’, up on the balls of your feet, heels off the ground and that each step you are light on your feet, the least amount of contact with the ground means faster movement.
