Tennis Tips - Specialty Shots

The Drop Shot
The drop shot is probably the stroke most misused by players, but when you learn when and how to use it, you will have added to your arsenal of winning opportunities.

The trick in playing a drop shot is to hit the ball on the rise so the arc is highest on your side of the net. This ensures that the ball is descending when it reaches the other side of the net. Your opponent then has to run quickly forward to pick it up, and you have the option of passing or lobbing.
