Drop Shots

Q. Opponents always get to my drop shots.
What should I do to be more successful with this shot?
A. Drop shots can win lots of points if played at the right time and in the right way. The shot can be used to tire an opponent, vary the rhythm of play, and bring a baseliner to the net.
THE RIGHT WAY: The key is to focus on hitting the ball gently, as if playing with a young child. Many players make the mistake of attempting to hit the drop shot with a lot of slice. To get heavy slice you must swing at the ball, and swinging gives you too much power.
