The Finish 

The finish of a stroke is a most important part of it.

A consistent finish takes your mind off the impact and carries on through to the very end goal.

Players that pay too much attention to the impact hessitate on completing the stroke and thus not place the ball exactly where they want.

That is why I recommend to Find the ball, Feel it and Finish the stroke.

You need to establish through practice which is your favorite ending place, and then reinforce it, especially during a match.

On groundstrokes, whether you prefer to finish below or above the opposite shoulder, make sure the butt of the racquet is pointing to the place you sent the ball.

On volleys, stop at or through the impact, with the racquet face (strings) open slightly upwards and facing the direction you hit.
