Having a fast and responsive movement is what every tennis player should be aiming for.
Getting yourself set up for shots, getting too short balls, and having the ability to feel like you can attack from anywhere on the court is important.
To achieve this every tennis player needs to be performing an effective and specific tennis speed program.
It's not just about getting down the park to do a couple of 50m sprints. You need to be performing specific speed components with the intention of progressing the program to prevent a plateau.
There are three different speed components you need to focus on; Acceleration, Deceleration, and High-end speed.
There are also three key points you need to concentrate on when performing these speed components; Power, Position, and Pattern.
Concentrating on these three points in the speed drills will help improve your overall tennis speed and movement balance.
