This video we focus on the net position of the partner in Australian formation – so this is when the server and net player start on the same side!
This was a hot discussion topic on our other social media platforms, as people did not realise that starting a step back allows the net player to properly assess the point and react accordingly!
Do NOT be worried about this small angle to fence – if your opponent is hitting there, either: your partner needs to be a bit more aggressive with their serve or you need to “expect” the ball more and be ready. If it is the one-off winner – just say “Good shot….let’s see you do that again!”, because it is a high risk shot even for the best players!
