Delay   

Do you want to play like the pros?

Don’t take the racquet back as soon as possible.

Delay your backswing.  Use your non-playing hand as a holder, as a restraint.

Look at the ball exceptionally well AFTER THE BOUNCE.

Track the ball with the hand, as if going to catch it.

Find it slowly and then accelerate up and across and end up with the hand over the shoulder, with the butt of the racquet pointing to the net (like Djokovic and Murray).

If you want natural footwork, do the drills around the cone (turning from behind), shown in my DVD/videos.

It’s easy to put together.  Tennis can be a very natural sport.
