The swing is like an elbow slide across a table with a slight downward gradient

Bring the racket back as if your wrists were cuffed together

Side on to ball while it approaches ... move weight fwd with gentle torso turn / arm swing into impact

avoid any tension as ball approaches ... be relaxed

Swing starts gradually / slowly ... but just at the point of contact, add a little pop into ball

Once you realize ball is coming to FH side ....turn and do a small 'step out' step with right foot for body alignment and ease of weight shift

Drop Shot: Racket continues fwd and initially ball is behind racket post impact; legs continue moving fwd after impact to maximize ball dwell on strings... do not stop at impact; apex of trajectory is just before net and ball goes over net while descending; do not hit ball ...caress like it is a bird; fast legs and slow hands; hand goes (points) to where you want ball to go (not to the side of court)

try to always hit ball at eye level ... bend knees (not hips) on low balls
0 ups, 2m
...The backswing is a simple "lay back of the racket" ...hand leads the racket head
0 ups, 2m
Swing: short take back .... but a long follow thru
