Tactical Intentions

Tactics can be broken down into the following intentions...

Defend -

Neutralise - cancelling out a attacking shot from you opponent e.g. hitting a moon ball after a opponents drive shot

Stayin in the rally - getting the ball back in off a tough ball

Turning it around - off a tough ball hitting a winner , very risky so a last resort 


Trading the ball at the back to where it has come from with a similar speed. Keeping the rally even


Builiding - building the point to take control and the advantage of the rally. e.g. a corss court shot to move the oppoent . 

Finishing - hitt the ball so the opponent can't get it. e.g. hitting a drive volley resulting in a clean winner .
