The Outside Foot   

On groundstrokes, landing on the outside foot has several virtues:

1) you stop your run,

2) you are more balanced than otherwise,

3) it helps you turn back and power your shot,

4) you recover and cover the court you left open much faster.

Learn to pivot on the ball of the outside foot and you’ll handle the tennis ball in a better way.
